The second game of the afternoon session featured No. 1 seed Cal against LSU. The Golden Bears took this one, 5-3.
Both of today's evening match-ups are of the intra-conference variety. No. 2 Alabama takes on SEC rival Tennessee, the No. 7 seed, and No. 3 Arizona State takes on Pac 12 rival Oregon.(No. 11).
Tennessee is trying to rally in the top of the seventh against Alabama. The Tide led 5-2 entering the inning, but the Vols have scored a run and have two on base with two outs. It's final: Bama 5, Tennessee 3.
In the nightcap, ASU has beaten Oregon, 3-1.
Friday's play, entirely in the winners' bracket, will pit Cal vs. Oklahoma, and Arizona State vs. Alabama.
I'll be blogging throughout the tournament, as the opportunity permits.
