FGCU takes down Lipscomb, which, if my math is correct, secures Liberty a bid in the semis regardless of the outcome tomorrow. As it stands, everyone in Pool A has played two games:
- JU: 1-1 (Win over Liberty, loss to FGCU)
- LIBERTY: 1-1 (Win over Lipscomb, loss to JU)
The top three from Pool A move on. If Jacksonville beats Lipscomb tomorrow, Lipscomb falls to 0-3 and Liberty advances. If Lipscomb wins and Liberty loses to FGCU, then JU, Liberty, and Lipscomb all finish 1-2 with wins over each other. I believe original seeding is the secondary tiebreaker, which would mean the two LUs move on and the dolphins head home.
In that case, tomorrow can be a rest day for the pitching staff. With Tepper only throwing two innings on Tuesday, the pitching staff could be well rested and ideally aligned for the semis and onward.
