2-0 in the first round of the tournament. Kyle Hansen pitched great for St. John's. I can't believe he has 5 losses, as every time we've seen him for 3 years, he has been fantastic.

And Louisville gutted out a win against New Mexico State in 100+ degree heat despite an average performance from Justin Amlung.

Mid Major darling conference Missouri Valley went 0-3 while the Big East charged out to 2-0! That being said, both St Johns and Louisville have tough matchups today against UNC and Arizona, respectively.

Eliminated today at home by Missouri State, 12-2, after losing yesterday to Stony Brook, 10-2. That might be the most disgraceful performance by a 1 seed in regional history.

Baylor was the only other 1 seed to lose its opener, to Oral Roberts, but they stayed alive today by eliminating UT Arlington.

after beating UNC twice. They will play the winner of the Tucson Regional, which will be either Louisville or Arizona. UL must win both tonight and tomorrow to advance, as Zona crushed them last night 16-4. Both SJU and UL were 3 seeds.

Also, Kent State was the surprise winner of the Gary Regional, eliminating Kentucky after UK had eliminated the host school, Purdue.

they sucked up all the long island and north jersey talent and had great teams. Their pitching may be able to take them all the way this year.


St. John's has six CWS appearances.

1949, 1960, 1966, 1968, 1978, 1980

Wikipedia has a handy chart.


I'd thought their last CWS was more recent

But then again, I'm old, so 30 years is almost recent for me.

A once-powerful program that tanked completely and then rose again. Sounds like a nice template for a certain Catholic university in Northern Indiana.


Nice job, Johnnies. *

Alas, their reward is a trip to Tucson

Arizona murdered Louisville last night, 16-3, to win their own regional, after previously beating them 16-4 and Mizzou 15-3. To say the Cats are on a tear is an understatement.


Seems like yesterday we lost regionals to Cats in 2004. *
