Today's College World Series Preview

Well there are two games on today from the college World Series both on ESPN2. The first one is CAL STATE FULLERTON (47-15) vs. VIRGINIA(48-14-1). Cal State Fullerton has jumped out to early leads in almost all of it's games this season and look to do the same today. They need to make sure they get a sizable lead early because Virginia's bullpen allowed only 2 runs in the Super Regional. Although they did struggle against LSU giving up 6 in 5 innings. In this Game I like Virginia to bounce back, have a solid outing, and pullout a close win.

In the late game it is LSU (52-16) vs. ARKANSAS (40-22). LSU's Louis Coleman is expected to make his third start against Arkansas on Monday. He almost threw a no-hitter against the Razorbacks in his shutout against them earlier this season. He looks to be dominant again today. Arkansas is looking for it's power hitters to have another strong showing after the 3-4-5 hitters drove in all of there ten runs on Saturday. This being an all SEC game and me being an SEC fan, I'm definitely going to be paying close attention to this one. Going with my earlier predictions I say LSU wins it and they do it with pitching.
