The pressure is on the LSU Tigers in Game 3 of this Super Regional best-of-three series against the Stony Brook Seawolves. After five full innings, the Seawolves are on the verge of an upset and a spot in the College World Series with a 6-1 lead.
Stony Brook's Maxx Tissenbaum has been an offensive juggernaut this game with two doubles, the first plating one run and the second scoring two. Outfielder Travis Jankowski is 3-for-4 with two runs scored while Steven Goldstein has two hits and one RBI.
Stony Brook starting pitcher Frankie Vanderka has allowed one run on one hit and four walks in five innings. LSU starter Ryan Eades lasted just 2.2 innings and gave up four runs on seven hits.
Should Stony Brook pick up the victory, they will be just the second No. 4 seed -- the equivalent of a No. 13 seed or lower in the basketball tournament -- to advance to the College World Series since the field expanded to 64 teams. Arizona, Florida and UCLA have already qualified for Omaha.
