Miami baseball out of NCAA Tournament for second straight year

Oregon State has been selected as a regional host for the second straight year, the NCAA Division I Baseball Committee revealed Sunday afternoon.

The Bulldogs will be a national seed for the fourth time, earning the No. 8 overall seed.

When their name didn't pop up on the four-team bracket for the Gainesville region during Monday's NCAA Tournament selection show, USF's players whooped and roared their approval.

It wouldn't be shocking to see the Aggies in Chapel Hill and the Camels in Greenville as No. 4 seeds, since these things tend to shake out regionally, even if the superregionals are no longer paired up that way.

Despite not making it past year, the Gamecocks earned an at-large bid to the tournament after the selection show Monday. Other regionals in the state include Gainesville and DeLand.

This is the second NCAA Tournament berth in three years for the Gamecocks, who advanced all the way to the Super Regionals in 2016 before losing to Oklahoma State. "And we've got a real home field advantage". Thirty-one games into it I brought out some records and talked about the history of the last three teams that have won the championship, and I told them on the bus last night that I believe as strongly in this team as I ever have.

The Tigers, who haven't hosted since 2010, were not one of the 16 Regional hosts announced Sunday evening. Louisville could not respond with any runs of their own, and the 11-8 score would stand by the end of the tenth inning.

Then again, neither did Stetson, which leads the nation in team ERA (2.58). The Cardinals remain a lock for the tournament nonetheless and should host one of the regional rounds before hitting the road for a potential super regional series. "Top-50, they were a little bit light, but it was so close". "We still had energy going into extras". At each site, two teams play in a best-of-three tournament format. "There are a lot of teams that don't get to play at home in a Regional and we do, so we're grateful for that and hopefully, we can play our best baseball this weekend, find a way to win a Regional here at home and advance".

On the season, USC has generally had more success against left-handed starters, with a 12-6 record in such games, compared to 21-18 against righties.

"You win with people", coach Mike Martin said, "and we have good character people".
