The ASC has never had a world series champion, UT Tyler has a real chance. I expect this series to go 3 games.  Both pitching staffs are working on fumes and those on the staff with light experience will have to step up. The team that can get the most quality innings out of their strained staffs will emerge victorious. This is now the end of a marathon and who can survive.

I wanted to talk about the balance of the ASC.  All season long I had said there was no dominate team but a lot of balance. Because of that balance and beating each other I assumed that only the conference champion would receive a bid to the regionals. I was wrong and gladly so. This conference was the most balanced and IMO the the strongest in DIII.  We had 3 teams make it to the regionals. Concordia was the regular season champion. UTD the conference champion and UTT a regional and World Series Champion. Concordia had beaten UTT 4 out of 6 games they met this year. UTD beat Concordia for the Conference Championship and UTT had beaten UTD 2 out of 3 during the regular season. No other conference had such diversity in their champions. Congratulations to the ASC for being the best conference in DIII baseball in 2018.

UT Tyler moves to DIV II and is to join the Lone Star Conference on July 1, 2019. They will compete one more year in the ASC.

Wow!  Louisiana College swept Concordia-Texas.

Louisiana College had nothing impressive on the resume prior to that.

The conference tournament should be interesting.

The 19-5 record by HPU is not reassuring to this point. They have only lost 5 games to a D-2 to boost the resume.

Ralph- this might be more suited for the SCAC board but what will things look like for Trinity with them playing so many games out of region?  Will anyone look at that as a negative?

We don't get Regional Rankings for another 4 weeks, but my guess is the we get a 3-team pod in Texas and in Southern California. Let's assume that the
Conference Pool A bids are:

HPU
TLU (Series winner over TUTX)
Cal Lutheran (which won the series over Chapman)
Whitworth


I have HPU playing Trinity at TLU in Game one.

I have Whitworth playing Chapman at Cal Lu in Game one.

Top 8 teams go to the playoffs. Ozarks needs to sweep McMurry (plausible) and probably take 2 out of 3 against LaCollege to get that last slot.

UTD is 3 games ahead in the loss column with 9 to play.

The question is whether CTX, with their harder conference and non-conference schedule is better than the current #6 seed.

Having beaten LeTourneau 15-3 in the opener, CTX is down 6-4 going into the bottom of the 8th in the nightcap. They score 1 in the bottom of the 8th. Down 6-5 in the bottom of the 9th they get a walk, a SAC bunt single and then SAC bunt RBI to tie. CTX gets another BB and then Reed Carlton gets a walk-off 3 run HR for the 9-6 win.

There is a good chance that CTX will finish the regular season 30-9 (16-5) if they beat LeTU tomorrow and sweep UMHB next weekend.

16-5 may let CTX host one 4-team bracket of the ASC Playoffs.

HPU, ETBU LaCollege and HSU still are in contention to host a 4-team bracket, too.

Watching the HPU-HSU game...

I like the profundity of the HPU broadcaster...

Situation. 2 runners on, nobody out in the bottom of the 5th.

"As I always say, triple plays always begin with at least 2 on and nobody out..."

 ;)

HPU sweeps HSU.

The regular season champ and #1 seed, HPU finished 17-4.

However, they did not play the #2 seed CTX, the #3 seed ETBU or the #6 seed UTD.

They went 3-0 against the #4 seed LaCollege, 3-0 against the #5 seed HSU, 2-1 vs the #7 seed SRSU and 1-2 vs #8 seed LeTU.

At this time, HPU has no games against Regionally Ranked Opponents.

HPU earns the right to host the bracket and then rain and poor field conditions prompt the move to San Angelo at Angelo State's field!

What (bad) luck!
