Game 1: Stanford (38-16) vs. San Jose St. (31-25) · 5 p.m. ET Friday · ESPN+
Game 2: Texas A&M (36-25) vs. Cal State. Fullerton (31-22) · 10 p.m. ET Friday · ESPN2
Texas A&M made a run to the SEC Tournament Championship game, only to fall to a red-hot Vanderbilt team.
The SEC will be tested at the Sunken Diamond when three teams from the state of California look to stop the powerful conference.
Regional host Stanford will turn to Brandt Pancer to work Friday against San Jose State, saving Quinn Mathews for a possible matchup with the Aggies on Saturday.
Cal State Fullerton finished 20-10 in Big West play, led by a strong fielding percentage and a staff ERA in the top 100. The Titans possess high rankings in strikeout-to-walk ratio and doubles per game, but getting the ball past the treelined outfield fence may be an issue.
Texas A&M is expected to throw Nathan Dettmer with a projection of -120 against Fullerton's Tyler Stultz.
The Aggies went 12-15 against the RPI Top 25, while Stanford boasts some of the best offensive numbers in Division I.
Mathews projects -160 or higher against most of the Texas A&M staff. The Aggies boast two pitchers who serve in the stopper closer role in Will Johnston and Evan Aschenbeck, while the Cardinal have a lights-out closer in Ryan Bruno.
Stanford is expected to be favorites in the winners' bracket over Texas A&M with Mathews on the mound, making a Regional price at plus-money not only attractive but an easy hedge against the Aggies.
