* Aces lose, win on final day of the regular season

While the scoreboard at Duffy Bass Field may have shown the University fo Evansville on the wrong end of an 11-4 decision to Illinois State, the Aces still left the diamond smiling with the knowledge they'd clinched a coveted top four spot in next week's Missouri Valley Conference Championships in Normal, Illinois.

After falling behind 1-0 after the opening frame, the UE bats erased the deficit and then some in the top of the second inning. Junior center fielder Troy Beilsmith continued his torrid late season push at the plate, sending an RBI single to center, plating senior left fielder Matthew Jones for the equalizer, Next, senior third baseman Sam Troyer laid down a picture perfect but single to second, bringing in freshman second baseman Danny Borgstrom, giving the Aces the lead. Senior right fielder Nate Reeder capped the three-run uprising with a sacrifice fly to left, scoring freshman designated hitter Eric Roberts for an insurance tally, making it 3-1 Evansville.

Senior left-hand starting pitcher Alex Weigand would come back to toss a perfect bottom of the second, but in the third, the Redbirds would get one back on a Joe Aeilts RBI single, cutting the UE lead to one.

However, Eric Roberts would get it back with one swing of the bat, drilling his first collegiate home run. The solo homer to left would bump the Aces lead up to 4-2.

From there, it was all Illinois State, as not even a one hour and 13 minute rain delay would cool them off, striking for nine unanswered runs against Alex Weigand and the Aces bullpen the rest of the way.

The loss dropped Evansville's final regular season record to 24-27 and 11-10 in Missouri Valley Conference, while Illinois State finishes the regular season with an overall record of 14-7, good enough for a share of the MVC regular season title with Dallas Baptist, though they will be the second seed in next week's tournament.

As for the Aces, they finished the regular season tied for fourth place with Bradley. However, due to Evansville's sweep of the Braves during the regular season, UE gets the fourth and final spot in the new-look tournament bracket, while Bradley will be the fifth seed and play in the single elimination game Tuesday. Evansville will square off against in-state rival Indiana State, the third seed in the tournament, Wednesday night at 7 p.m. at Duffy Bass Field.

* Aces talented trio earns All-MVC honors

After a big turnaround season, one that saw the University of Evansville baseball team defy preseason last place predictions by earning the coveted fourth seed in this week's Missouri Valley Conference Championships, the Aces have landed several players on various all-MVC postseason teams, the league announced Tuesday.

Sophomore first baseman Tanner Craig earned conference second team honors. The Scottsburg, Indiana native followed up a phenomenal freshman season with a solid second season at the University of Evansville, finishing second in hitting with a .283 batting average and just missing out on the top spot with a .445 slugging percentage. Craig also finished tied for third in home runs with five. Craig also finished tied for third in the Missouri Valley Conference in doubles with 14.

The Aces also landed a par of players on the MVC's Honorable Mention team. Starting right-hand pitcher Adam Lukas got the nod on that squad after finishing tied for fifth in strikeouts in the league with 74 K's. The Grafton, Wisconsin native also finished 11th in the MVC with opposing batting average with a .234 mark. Senior outfielder Nate Reeder also landed an honorable mention after leading or being near the top on the team in nearly every offensive statistical category. Reeder finished first in batting average (.316), slugging percentage (.447), RBIs (37), hits (57), and on base percentage (.414). Reeder also finished tied for third on the team in home runs (5) and doubles (10). The Shawnee, Kansas native also finished in the top 15 in several categories in the MVC, as well.

“Tanner has been outstanding in Valley play and it is great to see him recognized for it", said University of Evansville head coach Wes Carroll. "Adam and Nathan have had great years and I can’t wait to see them compete in the tourney.”

The University of Evansville baseball team begins its run in this week's Missouri Valley Conference tournament in Normal, Illinois Wednesday against Indiana State. First pitch from Duffy Bass Field is set for 7 p.m Central Time.
