OMAHA, Neb. -- The College World Series game Thursday night between North Carolina and LSU was suspended because of rain and will be resumed Friday evening.

North Carolina led 2-0 with one out in the top of the first inning when rain and lightning moved into the area and play was stopped at 6:27.

After a delay of 3 hours, 5 minutes, the decision was made to resume Friday evening.

Games originally scheduled for Friday -- Georgia against Stanford and Fresno State against the winner of the North Carolina-LSU game -- will be moved to Saturday.
