SDSU Baseball Qualifies For First NCAA Tourney



Bookmark and Share

ROCHESTER, MI --  The South Dakota State baseball team qualified for it's first ever NCAA Tournament in the Division One era, twice defeating North Dakota State in the Summit League Tournament Championship in Rochester, Michigan on Sunday afternoon.

SDSU, who had finished runner up to Oral Roberts in three of the previous four Summit League Tournaments, was forced to win out after dropping their tournament opener to Western Illinois on Thursday.  NDSU had not allowed a run or lost a game in the tournament and had the advantage of needing just one win to take the Summit title in the double elimination tournament.

SDSU took the opening game 2-0.  Aaron Machbitz gave SDSU a 1-0 lead in the second with an RBI single and Scott Splett added a sacrifice fly in the 8th inning.  Kolten Emery was strong on the mound, working 7 2/3 scoreless innings and striking out five.  J.D. Moore got the final four outs, three via strikeout.

The Jacks jumped to a 1-0 lead in the first on Daniel Telford's RBI double and would make it stand.  Shane Kraemer started and worked the first 5 1/3 innings.  Stephen Bougher worked the next 1 2/3 innings and Yankton's Layne Somsen worked the final two innings to pick up the save.

SDSU will learn who their tournament draw is tomorrow at 11 AM during the selection show on ESPNU.
