FSU in the NCAA regional
June 2, 2006
Florida State's baseball team is playing in the first game of their 29th consecutive NCAA regional.
Their opponent Jacksonville University has lost sixteen consecutive games to the Seminoles and hasn't beaten FSU in the post-season since 1976.
In the first inning, FSU scored a touchdown, but missed the extra point. They currently lead 6-0 in the 2nd.
Elsewhere, Notre Dame has gone to extra innings against the College of Charleston and Manhattan is on the verge of upsetting Nebraska (who's seeded #6 in the field of 64).
LATER: One of the widely scattered thunderstorms in Georgia passed straight over Athens and put the FSU game into a rain delay, but not before the Seminoles tacked on a run. It's now 7-0 in the bottom of the 3rd.
Notre Dame and the College of Charleston have played nine full innings of scoreless baseball as the game is now in the 16th inning.
Manhattan has indeed sent Nebraska to the loser's bracket.
AT EVENING'S END: It started to rain in Athens so the FSU-JU game is not over. The game will resume at 9 AM with the FSU holding an 18-0 lead over the Dolphins.
The Notre Dame-Charleston marathon ended in the bottom of the 16th with Charleston coming out on top.
