NCAA Regionals, Kent State Tops Texas State

In the first NCAA Regional tournament game in Austin, Kent State topped Texas State in 11 innings, 4-2. eedless to say, neither starting pitcher factored into the decision. Texas State starter Carson Smith pitched the first nine innings, allowing two runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out five. Smith gave way to Jeff McVaney who pitched the last two innings for Texas State - allowing two runs, but neither of them were earned. A throwing error and a passed ball on catcher Andrew Stumph proved costly, as it enabled both of Kent State's runs to score in the 11th.

Stumph, though, did go 2-4 at the plate with a run scored.

Kyle Hallock started the game for Kent State, lasting six and a third innings, giving up a run on four hits and three walks while striking out three. Justin Gill came in and pitched two and a third innings of relief - giving up one run, before giving way to the eventual winning pitcher, Kyle McMillen, who didn't allow a hit over his two and a third innings of work.

The next game in the Austin regional features the host team - the Texas Longhorns, as they take on the Princeton Tigers at 6:30 p.m. CDT.
