2012 Atlantic Sun Baseball Tournament: Stetson Survives In 2-1 Upset Win

The second round of the 2012 Atlantic Sun baseball tournament come to a close on Thursday night in DeLand, FL with the host team pulling out a gritty win.

No. 6 Stetson Vs. No. 2 USC Upstate, Stetson pulls upset 2-1: The Stetson Hatters were coming off a 15-inning loss to Belmont and were tasked with playing the early game of Thursday against the No. 2 seed in the tournament. Stetson was able to guy out a 2-1 upset win over USC Upstate, however.

No. 3 Kennesaw State Vs. No. 1 Belmont, State wins in upset 3-1: The No. 1 seeded Belmont Bears had a bye in the first round of the tournament, but Kennesaw State was the team who got the jump. For the first time in school history, Kennesaw State earned a win in the A-Sun tournament and did so by knocking off the No. 1 seed.

No. 4 FGCU Vs. No. 5 Mercer, FGCU wins 4-3: Like Stetson, Mercer was coming off a 15-inning game from the night before but Mercer won and therefore drew the late game of the day. The rest didn't appear to be enough for Mercer however, as FGCU pulled the close win 4-3.
