USF baseball's most successful season ever ended Sunday with a disappointing 6-4 loss to Manhattan in a NCAA regional elimination game Sunday in Lincoln, Nebraska.
The Dons won 39 games, captured its first ever WCC baseball crown and earned its first trip to an NCAA regional.
USF fell behind early allowing three unearned runs in the first inning without Manhattan getting a basehit. The Dons eventually fell behind 6-2 before bringing in Patrick McGuigan to close the door. The WCC co-pitcher of the year responded with seven shutout innings, but USF despite a home run by WCC MVP Scott Cousins could not get the tying runs home, leaving nine runners on base.
Detailed story to come.
