TLU baseball takes the momentum of the program’s first SCAC championship into the Spokane, Wash. Regional of the NCAA Division III Championship this week.  
 
(Seguin) – After a week of waiting, sixth-ranked Texas Lutheran Baseball's travel plans for the NCAA Division III Baseball Championship have been announced.

The Bulldogs (34-9) will be the fourth-seed in a six team bracket at the West Regional, hosted in Spokane, Wash. by Whitworth University and the Spokane Sports Commission.

The Bulldogs will be accompanied by two other Texas programs, Concordia University and the University of Texas - Dallas. This season, TLU swept a three-game series against UTD, but they did not play CTX.

The bracket will also include Chapman University as the top seed, followed by the University of the Redlands. Concordia will be seeded third, Texas-Dallas fifth, and Willamette will round out the field as the sixth-seed. Of those three teams, the Bulldogs have only faced Willamette, earning a 4-3 win in the third game of the season.

The Bulldogs will enter the tournament on a six-game winning streak after flying through the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Baseball Championship bracket with wins over two fellow regionally-ranked programs, Trinity University and Centenary College.

Six teams will compete at three regional sites and eight teams will compete at five regional sites. All regionals will use a double-elimination format.

Winners of the eight regional tournaments will qualify for the pool play double-elimination championship at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium in Appleton, Wisconsin, Friday-Tuesday/Wednesday, May 25- 29/30, 2018

Texas Lutheran is set to face Concordia in their first contest at 6 p.m. (PDT) on Thursday evening, with the winner advancing to face either Redlands or UT-Dallas in game six at 6 p.m. (PDT) Friday. The loser will take on the winner of the match-up between Chapman and Willamette in game five at 2:30 p.m. (PDT) Friday.
