After winning the Lincoln Regional by sweeping three games, keyed by season-best pitching performances from sophomore lefthander Danny Bibona and sophomore right-hander Bryce Stowell, the No. 8-ranked UC Irvine baseball team was back on the practice field Tuesday, preparing for a best-of-three Super Regional to begin Saturday at 3 p.m. at LSU.
UCI All-American pitcher Scott Gorgen and Coach Mike Gillespie said they are still formulating their scouting report on No. 5-ranked LSU (46-16-1), which extended its NCAA-best winning streak to 23 games to sweep through its own regional Sunday at LSU.
The Tigers, the No. 7 national seed, will play host to the Anteaters (41-16) at 7,760-seat Alex Box Stadium in Baton Rouge, La.
