Titans advance to Super Regional

Associated Press

Cal State Fullerton scored five unearned runs to beat Arizona 6-3 and win the NCAA baseball regional Monday night in Fullerton, Calif.

The Titans (45-16), the defending NCAA champions, will play Arizona State in the NCAA Super Regionals. The Wildcats (38-21), who went to last year’s College World Series, lost five of their last seven.

Other teams that played their way into the Super Regionals by winning their games on Monday were Southern California, Georgia Tech, Texas, Rice, Tulane and Baylor.

Teams that advanced Sunday were Oregon State, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Tennessee, Mississippi, Miami, Nebraska and Arizona State.

Super Regional sites will be named today.

Cal State Fullerton freshman pitcher Wes Roemer (7-3) won his second game in four days. He was named the tournament’s most outstanding player after conceding three runs, 10 hits and no walks while striking out 10 in 15 innings.

Against Arizona, he gave up only one hit in his first four innings. The right-hander induced 10 groundouts, allowed eight hits and struck out five in eight innings.

Fullerton held a 1-0 lead at the bottom of the third inning, when the Titans scored five unearned runs on four hits, two errors and a hit batter.

Ronnie Prettyman hit a two-run single to lead the rally. Bobby Andrews added a squeeze bunt for a run-scoring single.

The Wildcats committed five errors, one shy of their season worst, as the Titans emerged from the loser’s bracket for the second consecutive year to win their regional.
