2017 NCAA Regionals Scores on Day 3: LSU, Florida, Oregon State Win

BATON ROUGE, Sporting Alert — Florida State and North Carolina escaped early exits from the 2017 NCAA college baseball tournament after winning their respective Regional elimination games on Saturday.

LIVE TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY

Two of the tournament’s No. 1 seeds entered Saturday’s fixtures with their backs against the wall after losing their opening round games Friday evening, but they took care of business to stay alive.

After the shocking defeat to Davidson on Friday in the Chapel Hill Regional, the Tar Heels returned a day later to beat Michigan 8-1 on eight hits on the double-elimination tournament.

Michigan took an early 1-0 lead, but North Carolina scored eight straight runs, including three runs in the fifth and sixth innings to run home easily.

The Tar Heels will now face FGCU on Sunday.

Michigan has been eliminated from the NCAA Regionals.

Meanwhile, at Dick Howser Stadium, Florida State, the top-seed in the Tallahassee Regional, bounced back from a defeat to Tennessee Tech with a 6-1 victory over UCF in an elimination game.

The Seminoles will take on Tennessee Tech tomorrow in the elimination bracket.

UCF has been eliminated from the NCAA Regionals.

LSU OFFENSE SPARKS LATE AGAIN

In Baton Rouge, freshman Zach Watson hit two homers, went 3-for-5 overall with three runs and three RBI, and top-seeded LSU used another powerful offensive display to advance to the NCAA College Baseball Regional final with an 11-6 victory over Southeastern Louisiana.

After trading early blows, both teams entered the bottom of the fifth inning locked at 5-5, and that’s when the Tigers blasted away to extend their winning streak to 13 games.

Leadoff hitter Kramer Robertson, who was 0-for-5 in the opening game Friday evening, bounced back by going 4-for-4 and scoring twice on Saturday night.

EARLY SUPER REGIONAL SLOT

Elsewhere, Cal State Fullerton became the first team to move into the Super Regionals after beating Stanford in the regional final to go 3-0 in Stanford Regional play.

At the Corvallis Regional, Luke Heimlich dominated Yale with eight strikeouts and the No. 1 seeded Beavers advance to the regional final with a commanding 11-0 victory.

In the meantime, Hattiesburg Regional was affected by the weather and officials revealed the games between Mississippi State and Illinois at Chicago and Southern Mississippi vs. South Alabama, will have new starting times on Sunday.

After a weather delay on Friday, action in the Fort Worth Regional finally went off on Saturday, and it saw Virginia topping Dallas Baptist 6-3 in an opening round game.

Auburn marched into the final of the Tallahassee Regional with a 5-3 victory over Tennessee Tech.

Starring on the night for the Golden Eagles was Casey Mize, who tossed a complete game and finished with 12 strikeouts.
