College World Series 2012, Miami Vs. Stony Brook: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

Five days after suffering an upset at the hands of Georgia Tech, the Miami Hurricanes return to the diamond on Friday to open their NCAA Tournament campaign. Even though they came up short of an ACC Tournament title, they still earned a No. 1 seed in the tournament and the right to host their regional in Coral Gables. They start things off against the No. 4 seed Stony Brook, who won their spot by winning the America East tournament.

The 'Canes are led offensively by Peter O'Brien, who posted a 1.107 OPS during the season. With 10 home runs in just 38 games, he's a big power hitting threat. Unfortunately for the Hurricanes, he's the only guy who has the ability to go yard at any time, but guys around him in the order get on base frequently. O'Brien did niss a significant chunk of time through injury this year, and might not be 100 percent, but he is expected to play.

Eric Erickson should get the nod for the Hurricanes on the mound, but their starting rotation goes three-deep with quality pitchers, so there's not much of a drop-off if Jim Baker decides to save Erickson for the second game of the regional.

Game Date/Time: Friday, 7 p.m. ET

Venue: Alex Rodriguez Park, Coral Gables, Florida
