NCAA Baseball Regional Capsules: Corvallis Regional

Published by on June 2, 2011

The Corvallis regional should immediately catch your eye—if for no other reason than the records of some of the teams involved.

Arkansas-Little Rock, the No. 4 seed in this regional, finished at just 24-32. They caught fire at the right time, though, and made their way through the Sun Belt Conference tournament to nab the automatic bid to the NCAAs.

Georgia comes in with a record of just 31-30. A team has to simply finish .500 or better to qualify for the NCAA tournament. It doesn't take a math wizard to see that George just barely made it. After losing their opening game in the SEC tournament, Georgia made an inspired run to get the number of wins they needed.

Oregon State, the host and top seed in the regional, put together a solid campaign. Consistency is the word for them as they never really moved into consideration for the top eight seeds, but they also never dropped out of mix for hosting.

Creighton will come into the postseason with a gaudy record. Few people know just how good they truly are.
