Stony Brook Vs. LSU, Game 3 Final Score: Seawolves Advance To College World Series With 7-2 Win

The Stony Brook Seawolves advanced to the College World Series at the 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament with a 7-2 win in Game 3 over the LSU Tigers on Sunday night. The Seawolves will be making their first-ever appearance in the College World Series.

Stony Brook is just the second No. 4 seed to reach the College World Series since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1999. The Seawolves are also the first America East Conference team to reach the College World Series.

Starter Frankie Vanderka pitched a complete game for the Seawolves, giving up just two earned runs off three hits and four walks while striking out five. He gave up a home run to Mason Katz in the first inning, but settled down nicely after. The Tigers didn't score again until the seventh when Aaron Nola hit a sac fly to center, scoring Alex Edward.

Travis Jankowski, selected No. 44 overall in the 2012 MLB Draft by the San Diego Padres, went 4-for-6 and scored twice. Maxx Tissenbaum had two hits and three RBI. Willie Carmona had three hits and two runs scored, and freshman Kevin Krause added a pair of hits and RBI for Stony Brook.

With the scored tied at 1-1 the Seawolves broke the game open with three runs in the third inning and two in the fourth for a 6-1 lead.

Stony Brook joins Arizona, UCLA and Florida among the teams already in the World Series.

Stony Brook Vs. LSU: Seawolves Face Tigers In Decisive Game 3

The Stony Brook Seawolves aren't backing down from No. 7 LSU for a second and as a result will play the Tigers in a decisive Game 3 Sunday in the Baton Rouge Super Regional at Alex Box Stadium. This game will be televised on ESPN2 at 1 p.m. ET.

UPDATE: The game has been moved to 8:05 p.m. ET.

No one can say for sure, but this could be a totally different situation had Game 1 not been suspended due to weather conditions on Friday. The contest was tied at four runs apiece in extra innings when the tarp was pulled out and LSU ended up winning the next day when it resumed.

The Seawolves didn't blink, though. Stony Brook defeated LSU 3-1 on Saturday and looks to pull off the upset with Sunday's third and final game of the series.

Stony Brook Vs. LSU, Game 2 Final Score: Seawolves Beat Kevin Gausman, 3-1

The Stony Brook Seawolves defeated the LSU Tigers in the second game of the two teams' three-game series Saturday afternoon. That forces a decisive Game 3 on Sunday (1 p.m. ET) for the right to advance to the College World Series.

The first game of the series lasted 12 innings and spanned two days due to rain, as the Seawolves dropped a heartbreaker. Game 2 started just 50 minutes later with Stony Brook facing LSU ace Kevin Gausman

Guasman was recently selected in the 2012 MLB Draft, fourth overall to the Baltimore Orioles. Stony Brook was able to manage three runs off the future Oriole, while Tyler Johnson pitched a gem for the Seawolves. He threw a complete game three-hitter. And all this happened while the teams need to deal with pouring rain for stretches at a time during the opening innings.

Stony Brook Vs. LSU, Game 1: Game Tied 4-4 In 12th, Postponed Due To Rain Till Saturday Morning

Game 1 between the Stony Brook Seawolves and the LSU Tigers in the 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament Super Regional in Baton Rouge will be postponed due to rain until 11:05 a.m. on Saturday. Heavy rain and lightning stopped the game in the top of the 12th inning of a very exciting contest at LSU's Alex Box Stadium. The back-and-forth-game is tied, 4-4.

Here's a recap of the action.

The longball was the weapon of choice on Friday as the teams hit a combined five home runs. Stony Brook got on the board first with a two-run home run in the second inning by Sal Intagliata. Ty Ross got LSU one run back in the seventh inning with a ground out RBI. The run was unearned for Seawolves pitcher Brandon McNitt as the runner had reached base on an error. The Tigers tied the game 2-2 in the ninth inning with a solo home run by JaCoby Jones.

In the top of the 10th inning, Steven Goldstein deposited a pitch in the right field bleachers to give the Seawolves the lead. LSU answered in the bottom of the inning with Tyler Moore's solo home run. Stony Brook scored in the top of the 11th inning on a sacrifice fly by Kevin Krause. Mason Katz hit a solo homer for LSU in the bottom of the inning to prolong the game.

McNitt pitched a gem for the Seawolves and was given a standing ovation when he left in the seventh inning. McNitt faced 25 batters, allowed one run (unearned), three hits and two walks while striking out three batters. James Campbell went three innings in relief of McNitt and gave up two earned runs on two hits while striking out two batters and walking two. Jasvir Rakkar came on after Campbell and gave up two hits, one earned run and a walk while striking out one batter. LSU started freshman pitcher Aaron Nola who went six innings, giving up nine hits and two earned runs while striking out six batters. Joey Bourgeois allowed one hit and a walk in a scoreless seventh inning for LSU. Chris Cotton took the next three innings for the Tigers, giving up two hits and one earned runs while striking out four batters. Nick Goody gave up two hits, one earned run and a walk in the 11th for LSU.

Game 2 will start 50 minutes after the conclusion of Game 1 on Saturday. Both games can be seen on ESPN2.

Stony Brook fell behind 5-0 after the top half of the first inning. The Seawolves got two runs back in the bottom half of the inning, both were unearned runs due to fielding errors.

The Bears had to use three pitchers to get out of the inning after pulling their starter, Cody Schumacher.

Schumacher did not receiver a decision after going six innings and giving up seven hits and seven runs (four earned). He walked three and struck out three batters. Tyler Burgess took the loss for Missouri State. He faced thee batters, walked two and gave up two earned runs.

2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament, Oklahoma Vs. Army Final Score: Black Knights Season Ends With 2-1, Extra-Inning Loss

The Army Black Knights baseball program had their 2012 season come to an end Sunday, as Oklahoma's Max White collected a game-winning hit in the top of the 10th inning to help the Sooners earn a 2-1 victory in a 2012 NCAA Tournament game. The victory advances Oklahoma in the Charlottesville Regional, where they will play either top-seeded Virginia or No. 3 Appalachian St at 7 p.m. ET.

The Black Knights ended its season with a 41-14 record, despite having a few good chances of moving on. In the bottom of the ninth inning, Army had runners on first and second base with one out, however, failed to score the game-winning run after Harold Earls and Cody Murtle failed to collect hits.

Trailing 2-1 entering the bottom of the 10th, Army got the lead-off batter, Andrew Johnson, on base as he reached on a throwing error. However, again, the Black Knights failed to take advantage, as the Sooners got the first out with a failed bunt attempt and the final two outs with ground balls to the shortstop.

Army's offense spoiled a very solid outing by starting pitcher Logan Lee, who went seven innings allowing just one earned run on two hits. Reliever Gunnar Carroll was credited as the losing pitcher despite being solid -- three innings, allowing one run on three hits.

Oklahoma's starting pitcher Jonathan Gray was the one who shut down the Black Knight offense, as he tossed seven innings allowing just one run on six hits while striking out six batters.
