2012 NCAA Baseball Super Regionals: LSU Falls To Stony Brook 7-2, Eliminated From Poststeason

The LSU Tigers were eliminated from the 2012 NCAA tournament by Stony Brook 7-2 on Sunday night. This was a series that LSU was expected to win, but in the third game of this series their bats fell flat. Stony Brook starting pitcher Frankie Vanderka pitched a complete game, struck out five, allowed only three hits and gave only two runs.

As for LSU, their starting pitcher did not fair all that well as Ryan Eades lasted only 2.2 innings and gave up seven hits, four earned runs and walked four batters. Relievers Joe Broussard and Chris Cotton allowed the other three runs.

Stony Brook was led offensively by Maxx Tissenbaum, who had a two-run double and three RBI overall. Kevin Krause added two RBI and Travis Jankowski picked up four hits and scored twice.

LSU's offense came on a solo home run by Mason Katz in the first inning and then Austin Nola knocked in a run on a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning, but that is all the offense LSU could muster up.

2012 NCAA Baseball Super Regionals: LSU Trails Stony Brook 6-1 After 5 Innings

That only hit also is the only run for LSU when LSU center fielder Mason Katz hit a home run. Since then LSU has not been able to get anything going on offense.

LSU starting pitcher Ryan Eades was roughed up and lasted only 2.2 innings and in that time allowed four runs, seven hits and walked a batter. Joe Broussard has allowed the other two runs to Stony Brook which came on a two-RBI double by Maxx Tissenbaum.

LSU now has only four innings left to try to get back into this game for a chance to advance to the College World Series.

2012 NCAA Baseball Super Regionals: LSU Vs. Stony Brook, Winner Advances To Omaha

LSU has been tested against the surprise team of the tournament in Stony Brook, and now face an elimination game on Sunday afternoon. The first game went to LSU 5-4 in a rain delayed game that had to be finished on Saturday morning, and Stony Brook was able to slow down the LSU offense to win 3-1 in the second game of the series.

LSU is bringing out Ryan Eades to pitch in Game 3, who happens to be the 2011 Cape Cod pitcher of the year. While Stony Brooks leadoff hitter is Travis Jankowski who just happens to be the reigning Cape Cod player of the year. So that first at-bat between the two will be a scene.

Eades has been solid all year for LSU with a 5-2 record but has allowed opposing teams to hit .287 off of him, and routinely finds himself in trouble. Eades nearly always gets out of those jams but, Stony Brook is not a team to let pitchers off the hook.
