Tarleton baseball needed two things to happen to make the Lone Star Conference postseason tournament. The Texans needed Eastern New Mexico to lose one game to UT Permian Basin and Cameron to lose one game to Texas A&M-Kingsville.

UTPB won one of the four games to play in Tarleton's favor. However, Cameron swept the four-game series with Texas A&M-Kingsville, which eliminated the Texans from the conference tournament. Cameron finished with a 10-10 (.500) conference record to grab the fourth and final spot and Tarleton went 11-12 (.478).

Back on April 3, Tarleton defeated Angelo State 9-3 to split the four-game series with the Rams. Unfortunately, the final win of the series for the Texans didn't count as a conference win since rain pushed the game to Monday and occurred after the three-day window originally scheduled.

"Obviously it's a disappointing end to the regular season," said head coach Bryan Conger. "At this time I can't help but reflect on the conference game we won and the Lone Star Conference decided not to count it. That decision ultimately cost us a trip to the conference tournament. That decision ended the season for our seniors. I do not look forward to the upcoming conversation I must have with them now.

"On a brighter note, the coaching staff is proud of these young men and the effort and attitude they have displayed all year long. They have been an asset to this university and community. It has been an honor to coach them and we know they will have many prosperous days in their future."

Although the Texans are eliminated from the LSC tournament, they are still in play for the NCAA regional tournament. The Texans are ranked No. 6 in the latest regional poll. The top eight teams advance to the postseason tournament. The NCAA selection show will take place Sunday, May 14 at 9 p.m. CST on NCAA.com.
