SLU eliminates Bryant from Baton Rouge regional
Sam Roberson's sacrifice fly in the top of the 10th kept Southeastern Louisiana alive in the NCAA Regional at Alex Box Stadium as it eliminated Bryant 2-1 Saturday.
The Lions advanced to the loser's bracket final and it will face the loser of LSU and Houston at 2 p.m. Sunday.
Southeastern Louisiana's victory wasn't without drama. Bryant opened the bottom of the 10th with a double and a single to put runners on second and third with no outs. After a strikeout and an intentional walk to load the bases, Mason Klotz (2-0) got AJ Zarozny to pop up to shallow right field. Andrew Godbold made the catch then threw out Dan Cellucci, who tried to tag from third to tie the game.
Bryant reliever Trevor LaCosse (4-4) took the loss after allowing one run on four hits with two strike outs in 1.2 innings.
