TUCSON, Ariz. — For the first time in the history of the West Virginia baseball program, the Mountaineers will advance to the NCAA Super Regionals by defeating Grand Canyon 10-6 on Sunday night in Tucson!

The Mountaineers were led by JJ Wetherholt, who finished the game 3-6 with 2 runs, and second catcher Logan Sauvé, who went 3-5 with 3 runs and 3 RBIs. Junior pitcher Aidan Major got the win, pitching 4.1 innings and allowing only 1 run.

West Virginia, now 36-22, will play in Chapel Hill, North Carolina or Baton Rouge, Louisiana, depending on the outcome of Monday’s game between North Carolina and LSU.

“To win a region like this, we represent a lot of people,” said head coach Randy Mazey. “Not just our university and community, but 1.8 million people in the state of West Virginia, who I know right now are very proud of all these guys and everything they’ve accomplished.”

After winning the Tucson Regional (3-0), the Mountaineers now head to the Super Regionals and perhaps beyond! West Virginia is back in action on Friday, June 7 at North Carolina or LSU.
