Louisville Super Regional Prediction

This should be a very competitive Super Regional with two or three pitching duels. ECU has stellar pitchers in Jake Agnos who was recently drafted by the Yankees. Another stud, Jake Kuchmaner, threw a perfect game back in March. On the Louisville side, lefty Reid Detmers has 156 strikeouts and just 25 walks. Another lefty, Nick Bennett (4.40 ERA), is an All-ACC caliber player with 73 strikeouts and 30 walks. This series could go down to the wire but if you have to choose between two equals you go with the home team. Louisville 2 wins, East Carolina 1 win.
