The second day of action at the DII Baseball Championship was a wild one.
A well-pitched fight in the matinee between St. Thomas Aquinas and UC San Diego ended in a 6-5 extra-inning walk-off win in the 12th inning. The Spartans won without even getting a hit, rallying for three runs in the bottom half of the 12th.
The nightcap also saw the starters pitch extremely well. A wild five-run seventh for Colorado Mesa was all it needed to rise victorious 10-3 over championship newcomers Quincy. The Mavericks’ five runs were scored without a base hit as well.
Monday’s games start at 4 p.m. ET with North Georgia taking on Delta State. NCAA.com is live from pregame to postgame of all the days festivities, so check back for live updates all day long. For now, scroll below for a full recap of Sunday’s games:
This tournament is wide open. Delta State was the only No. 1 seed to advance from its region. Quincy, Lindenwood, St. Thomas Aquinas and UC San Diego all present compelling underdog stories. West Chester and North Georgia are two of the hottest teams in DII. And Colorado Mesa hasn’t stopped hitting the cover off the ball since February.
