CAA Baseball Tournament Championship: UNC-Wilmington Vs. Delaware Preview

Top-seed UNC-Wilmington and No.3-seed Delaware will match up in the CAA baseball tournament championship on Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m.

UNC-Wilmington advanced to the championship game after wins over VCU on Thursday, and a 3-2 victory against Delaware on Friday. Delaware needed two wins against Hofstra and one over Towson to advance to Saturday's championship game.

For the Seahawks (37-20), this is the program's fifth appearance in the championship game, which would give UNC-Wilmington the conference's automatic bid in the NCAA tournament. The Seahawks can thank pitcher Matt Batts for his strong outing on the pitcher's mound Friday, when he tossed a complete game against Delaware and struck out a career-high 11 batters.

The CAA tournament is being held at Veterans Memorial Park in Harrisonburg, Va., home of James Madison University.
