“That was really good baseball today,” TU coach Mike Lee told the team after the game. “It’s nice to be in the position we’re in at this time of the year.”
Thomas (24-16, 15-7), which has never qualified for the Sun Conference Tournament, can officially punch its postseason ticket with a win in Saturday’s doubleheader.
The Night Hawks currently retain the No. 4 seed – behind Embry-Riddle, St. Thomas and Southeastern – but can jump as many as two spots with help and a few wins in next weekend’s home series against St. Thomas.
“It feels good,” Overman said. “I wanted to give my team the chance to get the second spot. The higher you are, the worse teams you play early [in the tournament].”
