The 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament Super Regional round gets underway this weekend, and among the 16 teams still alive are the UCLA Bruins and the TCU Horned Frogs, who will battle in a best-of-three series for a spot in the 2012 College World Series. As one of the top overall seeds in the tournament, UCLA is hosting this Super Regional.
Of local interest is Kyle Von Tungeln, a junior outfielder for the Horned Frogs who was selected in the 2012 MLB Draft by the Colorado Rockies. Von Tungeln is hitting .301/.400/.420 this season and leads TCU with 12 stolen bases.
Von Tungeln and the rest of the TCU offense will have to contend with a solid UCLA pitching staff led by Adam Plutko (10-3, 2.56 ERA), who is starting Friday's game.
Game time/date: 7:00 p.m. MT, Friday, June 8, 2012
Location: Jackie Robinson Stadium, Los Angeles, Ca.
