2014 SEC Baseball Tournament, Day 2: Wednesday Open Thread and Updates

PodKatt | And the Valley Shook

The first day of action is in the books, and today eight teams face off to begin the double elimination portion of the tournament, including the tournament's top four seeds.

Yesterday's single elimination is in the books, and four teams have gone home most likely to await their postseason fates to be announced on Sunday.  Here's a quick look at yesterday's results:

Vanderbilt 3, Tennessee 2 [Recap]
Arkansas 4, Texas A&M 0 [Recap]
Kentucky 7, Alabama 1 [Recap]
MSU 5, Georgia 4 (10 innings) [Recap]

And with those results in, here's a look at the updated bracket:

2014 SEC Baseball Tournament

Today is a big day for all the teams involved, because a win today and a win tomorrow means that team gets a day of rest Friday and won't play again until Saturday afternoon.  Lose today, however, and the road to the championship game becomes a really long one (see: State's path in 2012).  While yesterday was a fun day of action, today should be even more fun as the top four seeds get involved.  Here's a look at the schedule for today.  We will update with results as the day progresses.  In the meantime, if you are looking for a good follow for live updates, I cannot suggest enough our friend PodKatt (@valleyshook) from LSU site And the Valley Shook.  He's an annual trekker to the tourney, and he's now a credentialed member of the media.  Give him a follow to keep up with today's action.
