The Chippewas (26-28-1), who took two of three during the regular season from Toledo, have proven to be nothing if not resilient throughout the battlefield promotions, winning 24 of their last 37 starts.
The Chippewas and CSU Bakersfield will open the tournament at 6 p.m. on Nov. 15. San Jose State and Weber State are slated to meet in the second game. Games are scheduled through Sunday, Nov. 18.
CMU’s Griffin Lockwood-Powell was named to the first team as a designated hitter, and pitcher Pat Leatherman was named to the second team for the second consecutive year.
Daniel Robinson, who is hitting .437 (28 for 64) in his last 17 games, turned on a three-ball, one-strike fastball and drilled it to straight-away right field after Zach Heeke had led off the eighth inning with a double. That put the Chippewas ahead for good.
