A-Sun: Well That Wasn't Very Competitive

By Bryan App - May 25, 2007

After Stetson's tease of a fourth inning, Belmont continued to steamroll the Hatters, adding five runs in the final three innings to take an 18-5 win.

The Bruins (34-24) will now play Jacksonville at 1 p.m. Saturday for the A-Sun championship. Jacksonville (32-26), a team Belmont beat in the tournament's first round, would have to defeat Belmont in a second game scheduled for 4 p.m. in order to take the conference crown, and the automatic NCAA Tournament that comes with it.

As for Stetson (41-19), its one-time promising hopes to host an NCAA Regional are likely dashed. They should still get an at-large NCAA berth, considering its 40-win record, No. 30 RPI ranking and its out-of-conference wins against LSU, Notre Dame and Florida.
