Miami baseball out of NCAA Tournament for second straight year

Up next, the Cards will find out their NCAA Baseball Tournament draw on Monday, May 28th at noon on ESPNU.

The University of Louisville baseball team will travel to Lubbock, Texas, to face No. 3 seed Kent State as the No. 2 seed in the Texas Tech Regional in the NCAA baseball tournament.

The Razorbacks failed to advance in four of their previous six home regionals, including last season when they lost 3-2 to Missouri State in the regional championship game. The loss to Clemson ended the winning streak.

Mendoza's bases-loaded, two-run double snapped a tie game in the top of the 10th, keying the sixth-seeded Seminoles to an 11-8 win over fifth-seeded Louisville in Sunday's tournament title game at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

"You know, I guess I look at it this way: We're just going to play hard". "Bottom line is we'll play at home again next weekend and we're looking forward to getting back on the field on Friday".

Auburn will likely be a No. 2 seed in one of the Southeast Regionals. And senior catcher JJ Schwarz also sat out the conference tournament with a hand injury.

Offensively, Liam McGill (.319 batting average, 6 home runs, 30 RBI), Joe Engle (.316-1-29), Randell Kanemaru (.296-4-16) and Chandler Bengtson (.257-10-31) set the tone.

Stanford (44-10 overall), which won the Pac-12 by a game and a half over OSU (44-10-1), was also selected as a regional host.

Mississippi State and Oklahoma will play the opening game Friday at 12 p.m. FSU and Samford will play Friday evening at 7:00 p.m.

As for the rest of the state, Florida State and Stetson join the Gators as regional hosts from the Sunshine State.

The victor of the Athens regional will advance to a super regional, with the victor of that advancing to the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. Troy finished as runner-up in the Sun Belt tournament, falling to Coastal Carolina in the championship game.

The Cardinal Nine had been playing relatively disciplined baseball as of late after having a subpar defense in the middle of the season, but the young team showed their youth today.
