Lions fall in Southland tournament final
SUGAR LAND – Sam Houston State defeated the Southeastern Lions 7-4 Sunday afternoon in the Southland Conference Baseball Tournament.
Southeastern Head Coach Matt Riser said both teams fought hard, but in the end the ball went Sam Houston’s way.
“I thought we made all out mistakes aggressively, which I’m perfectly fine with. If you’re going to make mistakes, make them aggressive and I thought we did that from our stand point,” Riser said. “At the end of the day you have two really good ball clubs going at it and at the end of the day we hit the ball well, split the game and their guys ran them down. The ball went their way. They ball didn’t go our way. You’ve got to tip your hat to them, their kids played hard.”
Sam Houston earned its fifth tournament title in program history, also earning a berth into the NCAA tournament. The field of 64 will be announced Monday at 11 a.m., CDT, on ESPNU. The tournament begins with regional play June 3-5 at campus sites. Super Regionals will be held June 10-12 and the College World Series will be June 18-28/29.
