The Super Regionals of the 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament began on Friday with the No. 7 national seed and No. 1 seed LSU Tigers taking on the No. 4 Stony Brook Seawolves in the first game of the day. After five full innings, the Seawolves -- the lowest remaining seed in the tournament -- hold a 2-0 lead.
LSU freshman starter Aaron Nola has labored through the first five innings, but with only two runs allowed he's still kept the Tigers in the game. He worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the first inning by getting a strikeout looking on Cole Peragine. But in the second inning, Sal Intagliata, the nine-hole hitter, clubbed a two-run home run. Nola has struck out five batters.
Stony Brook starter Brandon McNitt has kept the Tigers off-balance all day, allowing just two hits. Will he continue this success?
