Notes: Southern New Hampshire earned its sixth straight NCAA Tournament berth and the East Region's top seed Sunday night and meets LIU Post for the first time ever in the East Regional with a chance to avenge a 4-3 loss in the season opener. The Penmen are coming off a 3-0 loss at New Haven that knocked them from the NE10 Championship last Friday. Redshirt-junior Andrew Lalonde (5-2) allowed three runs – two earned – on four hits, while striking out five and walking two, in eight innings of work. Freshman Ryan Steffens spun a 1-2-3 ninth. Offensively, sophomore Joshua Zbierski finished 2-for-4, while junior Kyle Pangallo went 1-for-3 with a walk. Redshirt-sophomore John Stanton and senior Derek Bauer were each 1-for-4. Junior Caleb Potter went 0-for-2 and walked twice.

Notes: LIU Post has won five-in-a-row following a 4-2 victory against Felician in its NCAA East Regional opener Thursday. The Pioneers fell behind, 1-0, in the top of the first before senior  Kenny Daley tied it in the home half with a solo shot to left. Junior Rob Andreoli delivered the big blow in the third with a three-run home run to right that made it 4-1. Senior Jake DeCarli made it all stand up from there as he went the distance, allowing two runs on seven hits, while striking out right and walking one, over nine innings.
