College Football Videos
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.
