NCAA tournament game tied at 4 between Stony Brook, LSU postponed by rain after 12 innings
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) ' LSU hit tying home runs in the ninth, 10th and 11th innings, prolonging a wild NCAA tournament game with upstart Stony Brook long enough for a downpour to postpone it until Saturday morning, tied at 4.
Sal Intagliata's two-run homer in the second gave the Seawolves (50-12) a lead that lasted until Jacoby Jones' solo homer off reliever James Campbell tied it at 2 in the bottom of the ninth.
Stony Brook left fielder Steve Goldstein homered in the 10th, but flubbed a chance to end it when he overran Tyler Moore's two-out foul popup, giving Moore the extra swing he needed to hit his tying homer.
After Stony Brook scored on a sacrifice fly in the 11th, LSU (46-16) tied it at 4 on Mason Katz's homer.
The opener of the best-of-three super regional, will resume at 11:05 EDT, with Game 2 starting 50 minutes after the first ends.
