Saturday College Baseball Top-50 Scoreboard/Wrapup (3/19/11)

March 19, 2011
By

Florida and Virginia both reprised their dramatic series-opening victories by winning in thrilling fashion again on Saturday, as the weekend’s marquee series already have lived up to the hype regardless of what happens on Sunday. It was a fairly typical grouping of results on Saturday, with the 43 games involving CB360 top-50 teams producing 15 upsets (the higher-ranked teams won 65% of the top-50 games).  front-page photo courtesy of Texas A&M

Florida's Hudson Randall

Virginia (cb360 #4) beat #3 Florida State in 11 innings for the second straight game, this time doing so on defensive sub Jared King‘s stunning leadoff home run. That game technically counted as one of the day’s 14 top-50 upsets, but others featured bigger gaps in the CB360 Composite National Rankings, as: Loyola Marymount blanked #26 UC Irvine (4-0) … Pepperdine completed a series sweep of #31 Coastal Carolina (2-1, 7-1) … South Alabama stopped a surging Troy team (10-4) … Penn State shocked #36 Wichita State (4-2 road win) … and Evansville topping #49 Michigan State (2-0).

Virginia's Jared King

Florida – the top team in the CB360 top-50 – had rallied on Friday to win its opener at #7 LSU, but Saturday’s game saw the only run come in the top of the 1st, as pitcher Hudson Randall led the Gators to a 1-0 series-clincher. Florida avoided a trend that saw half of Saturday’s top-50 showdowns go to the lower-ranked teams (UVa over FSU, plus): #13 Texas A&M 11-1 at #6 Oklahoma (tying that series) … #27 Auburn 9-5 vs. #19 Arkansas (series tied) … and #29 Connecticut 3-1 vs. tournament host #25 College of Charleston.

Penn State's Steven Hill

Saturday’s five other top-50 upsets included: Long Beach State 2-1 vs. #30 Oregon StateAlabama 7-5 at #32 Mississippi (series tied) … McNeese State 9-4 at #34 Southeastern Louisiana (series-clincher) … Jacksonville 12-3 at #34 East Tennessee (series now 2-0) … and VCU 4-2 vs. #45 James Madison (series tied).

The most dramatic upset of the night almost played out in a wacky Waco finish – as Texas Tech scored nine times in the top of the 9th (five with 2-outs) to tie #20 Baylor, but the Bears then had their own 9th-inning rally for a 14-13 finish befitting of March Madness (that series is one of many set to be decided on Sunday).

Saturday’s other three head-t0-head games between CB360 top-50 teams included: #5 South Carolina 2-1 vs. #50 Georgia (avenging series-opening loss) … Texas 4-3 vs. #44 Kansas State (10 inn.) … and #12 TCU 12-2 at #43 (series tied).

Texas A&M's offense awakened in a big way during its game-2 win over Oklahoma.
