Frogs to take on Utah

It's not quite "May Madness", but the NCAA Baseball postseason has it's first upset already. Utah beat #3 seed BYU 2-1 in 10 innings in the first game of the MWC Tournament to set up a second right match up with TCU tomorrow night at 7:00pm.

That's good news for the Frogs, who will avoid a showdown with San Diego State's Stephen Strasburg in Round 2. Instead, they get the #6 seed Utah, who's pitching staff had to work 10 innngs this afternoon while the Frogs rested.

Now though, we might see just how much of a gambler SDSU coach Tony Gwynn is (yes, THAT Tony Gwynn) . He had already committed to betting he could beat UNLV without Strasburg to save his ace for Wednesday. Now does he think he can beat UNLV and New Mexico without him to try to use him Thursday? It's a really risky move, but his team's only real shot at making the NCAA Tournament is to win the MWC Tournament.
