On Saturday, Colorado Rockies draftee Trent Blank pitched the Baylor Bears to an 8-1 victory in Game 1 of the Waco, Tx., Super Regional of the 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament. On Sunday, the Bears could find a spot in the College World Series secured should they take Game 2 in this best-of-three-series.
Blank threw eight innings of one-run ball, and he will now look to his teammate Josh Turley to turn in a similar performance. Turley, a lefty, is 9-1 with a 1.83 ERA in 16 starts. He will go up against one of the top prospects for the 2013 draft, Ryne Stanek. Stanek is 7-4 with a 2.83 ERA in 15 starts this season. Will he do better than D.J. Baxendale, who allowed five runs in four innings?
This game will be broadcast on ESPNU and will start at 2:00 p.m. MT.
