Seven slots taken for the Sun Belt baseball tournament


Here are your standings after Sunday’s play in the Sun Belt Conference:

Troy                         19-8

FIU                           18-8-1

Louisiana               16-11

FAU                         16-11

WKU                       15-12

South Alabama  14-13

ASU                       10-16-1

UALR                   10-17

MTSU                    8-19

ULM                      8-19

FIU and Arkansas State played to an 8-8 tie in Miami on Sunday.  The start of the game was delayed by 90 minutes because of weather and the two teams ceased playing after eight innings because of ASU’s travel plans.

The tie means that FIU sits 1/2 game behind Troy in the league standings.  Troy travels to South Alabama next weekend while FIU hosts Florida Atlantic.

The tie also means that Arkansas State has secured a spot in the conference tournament in Monroe.

UALR, Middle Tennessee and Louisiana-Monroe all lost two out of three this weekend.  UALR salvaged the final game of their series in Boca Raton against FAU.  It was the first league road win for UALR this season.  The Trojans hold the tiebreaker over both Middle Tennessee and ULM, meaning the Trojans can secure the final spot in the tournament by winning one game next weekend, or have ULM and Middle Tennessee lose one game.  If the Trojans get the spot, it would be their first tournament berth since 2003.

Louisiana cannot be the #1 seed, having lost the tiebreaker with Troy.  The Cajuns are realistically in a three-way battle for the third seed with FAU and WKU.  The Cajuns win a tiebreaker with the Owls, but lose a tiebreaker with WKU.
