The Stony Brook Seawolves will continue their journey this baseball postseason with a berth in the 2012 College World Series. They defeated the LSU Tigers on Sunday evening in a lop-sided 7-2 victory for its second win in the best-of-three Baton Rouge, La., Super Regional of the 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament.
LSU pitcher Ryan Eades, a 2010 Colorado Rockies draft pick, didn't have his good stuff while on the mound this time. He allowed four runs over 2.2 innings, but there was also some rather shoddy defense by the Tigers defenders that didn't help things. Joe Broussard and Chris Cotton allowed the other three runs.
Stony Brook's Frankie Vanderka threw a complete game three-hitter. His offensive support came from Maxx Tissenbaum, who had a two-run double and three RBI overall. Kevin Krause added two RBI and Travis Jankowski picked up four hits and scored twice.
Stony Brook joins Arizona, Florida, Florida St. and UCLA in Omaha for the College World Series. They are looking to join the Fresno St. Bulldogs (2008) as the only No. 4 seed (since the tournament expanded to 64 teams) to win the College World Series
