CMU Baseball Wins Regional Tournament, Advances to National Tournament
It took two games to complete the job Sunday at Suplizio Field, but the Colorado Mesa University’s baseball team pulled it out by defeating Texas A&M-Kingsville to win the NCAA South Central Regional Tournament and earning a trip to the NCAA Division II World Series.
Finals in both games were won by a single run, with Texas A&M winning the first game 9-8 and Colorado Mesa winning the second game 7-6. In the second game, Texas A&M scored two runs in the ninth inning and had the bases loaded but Matt Allen came on to get the final two outs and secure the win.
Listen to the final out from ESPN Radio 1230.
By winning the NCAA South Central Regional Tournament, the Mavericks will now travel to Cary, North Carolina to compete in the 2014 NCAA Division II Baseball Championships, which are scheduled May 24 through 31.
CMU’s first game is Sunday, May 25 at 3:00 p.m. (Grand Junction time) against St. Thomas Aquinas.
