Cheer on Hometown Athletes in the College World Series

Kent State and its roster of local players competes against South Carolina at 8 p.m. on ESPN

UPDATED 6/21: .

The baseball team won its first game in the College World Series against Florida, the nation's top ranked team in the tournament. The 5-4 win Monday night kept the Golden Flashes in Omaha, NE, where they will play two-time defending national champion South Carolina. 

But the cinderella story of a Mid-American Conference school isn't the only reason to watch the Golden Flashes tonight. Several of the players are from or near northeast Ohio Patch towns:

  • Nick Hamilton - Avon Lake
  • Josh Pierce - Avon
  • Ryan Bores - Strongsville
  • Michael Clark - Akron
  • Brian Clark - Munroe Falls
  • Tyler Skulina - Strongsville
  • Ryan Mace - Tallmadge
  • Tim Faix - Strongsville
  • David Starn - Hudson

Wednesday night's game should air on ESPN, but there was a weather delay. If the Flashes win, they will play Thursday. If the Flashes lose, they will be eliminated.
