Day Four:


The Rice Owls had sat at number one in the polls longer than any other team this season. After Monday's performance against Miami, the Owls look to be the team to beat in Omaha. Normal closer Cole St. Clair was outstanding as a starter against the Hurricances. St. Clair was able to work out of jams by getting ground balls to force double plays. Bryce Cox ended the game by striking out the last batter with the tying run on third, and the winning run on first.


In the day game, Oregon State made it short stay in Omaha for the Peach State. The Beavers defeated Georgia 5-3 for the first win at the College World Series. Oregon State will face Miami at 9 p.m. tonight.


The Beavers and Hurricanes will follow the Tigers and Titans. Clemson has not announced a starter for today's game. It will be between Josh Cribb, P.J. Zocchi, and Jason Berken. The most likely option is Josh Cribb. Cribb is 10-0 on the year, but he has not pinched since the regional championship against Mississippi State.


The Titans are a team that gets outstanding pitching from their starters, and their defense makes very little mistakes. The Tigers cannot afford to fall behind once again. As stated yesterday, the production from the leadoff spot will be key. Herman Demmink is looking for his first hit in Omaha.


Both teams backs are against the wall, and this should be a great battle between two teams that have been ranked in the top three nearly all season.
