2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament, Manhattan Vs. Coastal Carolina: Jaspers Face Elimination Game Saturday After Falling To South Carolina

The Manhattan Jaspers face an elimination game at noon Saturday against third-seeded Coastal Carolina in the Columbia Regional of the 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament.

Manhattan opened the tournament Friday against the defending national champion South Carolina Gamecocks. The Jaspers fell 7-0 despite starting pitcher Taylor Sewitt taking a no-hitter into the sixth inning.

Once South Carolina finally touched Sewitt, the Gamecocks erupted for four runs in the sixth, snapping Sewitt's scoreless streak of 39 1/3 innings and chasing him from the game.

Mike Giordano relieved for Manhattan to pitch a perfect seventh inning, but South Carolina added three more insurance runs in the eighth.

Manhattan was no-hit by Colby Holmes into the eighth inning and managed just two hits in the outing.

The full tournament bracket is available at the official NCAA site. Stay tuned to this storystream and SB Nation New York for updates from the 2012 NCAA Baseball tournament.
