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.
