With the close of the regional round, dates and start times for the Super Regional round of the 2011 NCAA baseball tournament have been set. The Texas Longhorns and Arizona State Sun Devils are scheduled to start Friday in Austin with Game 1 at 6:00 CDT. Game 2 will be Saturday at 6:00. Game 3, if necessary, will be Monday at a time to be determined.
The Longhorns could have used a Saturday start for their series, after using all four starters twice in their five regional round games, including Game 1 starter Same Stafford throwing 171 pitches. Arizona State went 3-0, so their staff will be well rested.
Dallas Baptist will travel to Santa Clara to take on California in their super regional. The Patriots and Bears will play Game 1 Saturday at 7:00 CDT and Game 2 Sunday at 9:00. Cal and DBU were both three seeds in their regionals. They are two of just six non-#1 seeds to advance to the super regional round.
