Posted on May 9th, 2008 by

The Gustavus baseball team lost its first game in the MIAC Tournament to St. Thomas 11-3 on Friday afternoon, but then rebounded with a 7-3 win over Hamline in the nightcap. The Gusties will now face St. Olaf on Saturday morning in the consolation final at 11:00 am. The game was originally scheduled for 1 pm, however with rain forecast for the afternoon, the starting time has been moved to 11 am in Dundas at Memorial Park.

The loser of the Gustavus/St. Olaf game will be eliminated, while the winner will get the chance to defeat St. Thomas twice to earn the MIAC Playoff title and claim the automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Gustavus improves to 21-17 on the season and will attempt to get to the MIAC title game for the first time since 2004.
