Seton Hill's run at a spot in the NCAA Division II World Series ended with a doubleheader loss to Shippensburg on Sunday in Winston-Salem, N.C.

The sweep gave the Red Raiders the Atlantic Region's berth in the tournament, held Saturday through June 1 in Cary, N.C.

Seton Hill scored twice in the bottom of the fifth inning to take a 2-0 lead, but Pat Kregeloh's three-run homer in the top of the sixth lifted the Red Raiders to a 3-2 victory and the Atlantic Region title.

In the first game, Shippensburg erased a 3-0 Seton Hill lead to roll to a 10-3 victory and force a second and deciding game.

Third-seeded Seton Hill (42-17) opened its regional schedule with a 4-1 victory on Wednesday over fourth-seeded Shippensburg (32-21) and had won three in a row, including a 12-2 triumph over top-seeded Millersville on Saturday.

The Griffins, who played in the NAIA Division II World Series in 2006 before becoming an NCAA Division II member, has reached four NCAA D-II regionals but was playing in their first title game.

WVU draws Kansas in Big 12

West Virginia is seeded third in the Big 12 tournament and will meet sixth-seeded Kansas in a first-round game at 5 p.m. Wednesday in Oklahoma City.

Regular-season champion Kansas State enters the tournament as the top seed.

The winner of the tournament, which runs through Sunday, earns a bid to the NCAA Division I Baseball Championship.

West Virginia wrapped up a regular-season record of 31-25 by going 13-12 in its first season in the Big 12.
