Colorado Mesa Baseball Advances to Regional Championship
Saturday was no different as CMU defeated West Texas A&M 9-6, thereby advancing the Mavericks to Sunday’s championship game.
CMU took an early 3-0 lead in the first inning, and held onto the lead until the fifth inning, when West Texas scored 4 runs to tie the game. West Texas then took a 6-5 lead in the top of the 7th inning, but the Mavericks turned the tables with 3 runs in the bottom of the 7th and an additional run in the 8th to seal the game.
CMU may play West Texas A&M a second time in the NCAA South Central Regional Tournament. At this writing, Texas A&M-Kingsville was scheduled to play Tarleton State in Saturday afternoon’s elimination game, with the winner taking on West Texas A&M Saturday night.
The winner of Saturday night’s game will face Colorado Mesa in the championship game on Sunday.
