Too bad no Auto- bid for the UAA. I hope they continue to schedule OWU. it is always one of my favorite Non-con every year. We are only a little further than Heide.

Wash-U has made some waves by sweeping #10 Emory in a four-game series last weekend.  Bears now 16-5 overall, 4-0 in UAA.  Emory now 19-11 and 2-6 in the UAA. 

With most of the starting everyday players and pitchers back from last season's NCAA tournament team, it was expected that Wash-U would be good again.  What is perhaps most encouraging is the improvement of the bullpen consistency.  Jake Mintz picked up 2 of the 4 wins against Emory, and he is 4-0 in 9 appearances, with 1 save and a 0.44 ERA...1 earned run in 20.1 IP.  Combining Matt Clohisy's 3 saves and Bill Heisler's 1-0 record in relief, and the Bears could have the ingredients to compete for a regional title.

Granted, Wash-U has to play well the rest of the way--but it's performance to this point of the season has started to generate a lot of great vibes for what could be an entertaining conclusion to its season.

#14 Wash-U stays alive in the NCAA Central Region Tournament with a 7-1 victory over Greenville in an elimination game for both teams Friday afternoon at GCS Ballpark in metro St. Louis.  Wash-U squandered a bases-loaded opportunity in the 1st inning by grounding into an inning-ending double play, but Auggie Mense made sure a second chance was not wasted in the 2nd inning.  Auggie's bases-clearing double gave Wash-U a 3-0 lead that it would not relinquish.  An RBI double by Tate Maider and an RBI sacrifice fly by Ted Daley in the 5th and 8th innings boosted the lead to 5-1, and Christian Santos added a 2-run HR in the top of the 9th for the final margin of victory.

John Howard and Zack Kotin combined on a 3-hitter...Howard picked up the win after tossing 6 innings and giving up just a solo HR to Greenville's Austin Marsh in the bottom of the 2nd inning, and Kotin threw 3 innings of heat, striking out 5 for his first career save.

Wash-U will play Saturday at 3:30 CDT against tonight's losing team from the North Central-Wartburg game.  If Wash-U wins, it will play a second game immediately following the first.
