Bracket Gazing

FSU fans will have an eye on the field Saturday with an ear to the constant PA updates of baseball scores around the nation. The winner of the Tallahassee Regional will meet Arkansas, Missouri, Wichita State or LeMoyne.

The winner of the Tallahassee Regional moves on to face the winner of the Fayetteville (Ark.) Regional. The best case scenario for FSU - should it advance - would involve one of the lower seeds escaping with an upset over the Razorbacks, the No. 8 national seed. Arkansas would likely host Super Regional action if it advances.

The upset almost materialized yesterday. Against LeMoyne, Arkansas fell behind 1-0 early. An interference call prevented the LeMoyne from further damage. But the Razorbacks rallied with consecutive homers and edged away for a 4-1 victory.

Wichita State defeated Missouri 3-0 in the other game.

Also notable: North Carolina edged Coastal Carolina 6-5, Pepperdine routed ASU 15-5, Rice (No. 6 seed) was shocked by Texas Southern 4-3, Texas (also on FSU's side of the bracket) topped Youngstown State 10-3, Miami got by St. Bonaventure 6-3 and UF routed Cen. Conn. State 12-1.
