2015 College World Series: Day 3 Schedule and How to Watch

It's a triple header of sorts today.

Fullerton vs. Vanderbilt

2 p.m. ET, ESPN2

If you missed it, last night's game between the teams had to be postponed due to weather. This one will pick back up in with a full count for Zander Weil with two outs in the sixth and Rhett Wiseman on third.

As of posting, there haven't been any announcements about what pitchers will be picking the action back up. Adam Sparks of the Tennesseean notes that VU had righty Jordan Sheffield and lefty John Kilichowski warming up at the time of the suspension. He also guesses that Fullerton will be tempted to put in closer Tyler Peitzmeier to try to preserve the upset opportunity.

The Razorbacks are looking to regroup after letting a tie game slip away late on Saturday against Virginia. Miami is licking its wounds after being the latest team to receive a shellacking from Florida.

The Hogs are starting Keaton McKinney, who only pitched 1.1 innings in Arkansas's Game 2 loss in the Super Regionals thanks to a lingering hip injury. James Lowery did most of the work in that one with 6.1 innings pitched. Miami will send Thomas Woodrey to the hill, and he has the best ERA among Hurricane starters with a 3.06. With just 55 strikeouts in 97 innings, he's not a guy who will overpower you. He is the only Miami starter with a complete game though.

The forecasted bad weather could be Arkansas's worst enemy today. With Dominic Taccolini and James Teague out for the season, Arkansas is already down to just two of its four regular starters. If McKinney's hip remains balky, Lowery probably would be the guy to come in and relieve him. If the weather then suspends this one, Dave Van Horn will have tough choices to make about who would finish out the game with none of his starters available (assuming he'd keep Trey Killian back for a potential game after this one).

Miami gets home team honors in the game.

Florida vs. Virginia

55 minutes after Arkansas-Miami, ESPN2

It's hard to argue against the Gators being the hottest team in the country right now, and they'll take that momentum into a tough game against the Hoos. UF has won ten in a row, with only two of them being decided by fewer than four runs. Since the Super Regionals began, they've won three straight with 13-3.3 being the average score.

Florida will start A.J. Puk, who only managed four innings and allowed four runs in UF's Omaha-clinching Game 2 Super Regional 11-4 win over Florida State. Opposing him will be Brandon Waddell, who will tie Virginia's all-time starts record with 51 in his career. He sports a 4.15 ERA on the season.

The current weather forecast has the rain being gone by the evening, but if it pushes back the earlier games, this one might not start until fairly late. Virginia will be the home team in this one.
