Quick Hits

  • The biggest story of the night was the shocking upset of Texas by Kent State 7-5 in Austin. We always get into the argument that your second game is the most important game in the regional. It showed as the Golden Flashes held back their top pitcher Andrew Chafin to face off against Taylor Jungmann. Chafin went 8.2 innings giving up four runs (three earned) on four hits to up his record to 8-1 on the year. Taylor Jungmann picked up the loss snapping a streak in which he had won 15 straight decisions dating back to May 27, 2010 against Texas Tech. He also suffered his first career home loss, ending his 17-0 streak. The loss also ended Texas’ run of 25 consecutive home victories with Jungmann as the starter. The Longhorns now will have to win three straight games if they are going to get back to the Super Regionals.
  • The other big story of the day was Dallas Baptist edging TCU 3-2 to get to the Regional Championship game in Fort Worth. The bracket has really opened up for the Patriots as Oral Roberts shutout Oklahoma 7-0 to eliminate the Sooners. The Patriots will now have to be beaten twice by whoever wins the loser bracket matchup between TCU and Oral Roberts.
  • The best pitching duel of the day took place in Fullerton, CA between Cal-State Fullerton’s Noe Ramirez and Stanford’s Jordan Pries. The Cardinal ended up coming up with the 1-0 win behind Pries who went 7.2 innings giving up only two hits while striking out six. Noe Ramirez was up for the challenge though going all eight innings giving up only four hits and a Stephen Piscotty home run for the only run of the game. Stanford coach Mark Marquess talked about the game saying “It was obviously a great college baseball game. Both teams pitched phenomenally. Jordan Pries had a great performance. We had some opportunities early, but left four or five guys on base. We hit balls hard but right at people. Noe (Ramirez) pitched a whale of a game himself. Fortunately we got one big swing from (Stephen) Piscotty.”
