Miss. St. Makes CWS
Charlottesville, Va. — Adam Frazier had more hits and two RBIs and Wes Rea hit a two-run home run and Mississippi State clinched a spot in the College World Series by winning the completion of a suspended game 6-5 against Virginia yesterday.
The Bulldogs (48-18) needed six outs to complete the sweep, and used reliever Jonathan Holder to get them to secure their ninth trip to the College World Series, and first since 2007.
Mississippi State added an insurance run in the seventh, again with help from shoddy fielding by the Cavaliers (50-12), and it proved huge when Virginia rallied for two runs in the ninth inning.
UNC-Gamecocks Still on Hold
Chapel Hill, n.c. — The threat of bad weather has forced the postponement of last night’s final game in the South Carolina-North Carolina super regional series.
The deciding game in the best-of-3 series is scheduled for today at noon.
A tornado watch was in effect for the Chapel Hill area and surrounding counties until late Monday night, while forecasters also expected scattered thunderstorms and showers.
Rain forced the postponement of Friday’s series opener to Saturday. The No. 1 overall seed Tar Heels (56-10) won that game 6-5, but the Gamecocks (43-19) won 8-0 on Sunday.
North Carolina sophomore right-hander Benton Moss (8-1) and South Carolina freshman lefty Jack Wynkoop (7-3) are scheduled to start the game, which will send the winner to the College World Series.
