Miami Notes

  • The Hurricanes advanced to Sunday’s championship game of the Lincoln Regional at 6:05 p.m. with an 8-2 victory over Manhattan. The win improved Miami to 38-21 on the season.
  • The win was Miami’s ninth consecutive victory in regional play. UM, which is making its nation-leading 34th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance, will look for its 13th consecutive regional tournament title on Sunday.
  • Miami produced its second straight contest with double-digit hits, as it had 15 hits on the night. It was the Hurricanes’ most productive night since pounding out a season-high 19 hits against Wright State on May 7.
  • Six Hurricanes finished with at least two hits, while UM’s first eight batters each recorded at least one hit for the second straight game.
  • Shortstop Roger Tomas tied his season high with three hits to lead the Hurricanes. His two RBIs tied Tommy Giles for the team lead Saturday, and was one off Tomas’ career high.
  • Giles extended his season-high hitting streak to nine games.
  • Freshman second baseman Jermile Weeks has had two hits in each of his two postseason games in Lincoln. Weeks also leads the team with four runs scored this weekend, after picking up two runs in each game.
  • Starting pitcher Manny Miguelez improved to 8-4 on the season and won his second straight start after giving up two runs on five hits while striking out five. The five Ks improved his team-leading mark to 76 strikeouts this season while pushing his team-best innings pitched total to 101.0. 

Manhattan Notes

  • The 8-2 loss dropped the Jaspers into Sunday’s loser’s bracket game at 1:05 p.m., where they will face San Francisco. The winner of that contest faces Miami at 6:05 p.m. in the regional title game. Manhattan fell to 33-22 on the season and 1-1 in regional play.
  • Designated hitter John Fitzpatrick finished the night 0-for-2 and had his team season-high 16-game hitting streak snapped. Left fielder Eric Nieto went 1-for-5 against the Hurricanes and extended his hitting streak to 14 games, the team’s second longest of the season.
  • Starting pitcher Jesse Darcy fell to 5-3 on the season and dropped his first decision since March 17. Darcy had won five straight decisions since his last loss 11 appearances ago.
  • After seeing his 10-game hitting streak come to an end last night, catcher Nick Derba led the Jaspers with two hits and Manhattan's only RBI. Derba has had three multiple-hit games in the Jaspers’ last six contests.
