NCAA Baseball Tournament 2012: Fresno State, New Mexico, TCU headed to Regionals

The brackets for the 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament Regionals have been announced, with three current or future MWC teams headed to them.

UNM , having won the MWC tournament via an 11-5 rout of Air Force and secured the automatic berth that accompanies it, will be headed to the UCLA Regional. As the #3 seed there, they will face the #2 seed, San Diego. They have not played any of the three other teams there this season

Despite not winning the MWC tourney, TCU earned an at-large berth and is headed to the Texas A&M Regional. Seeded #2 there, they open with #3 seed Ole Miss. The Horned Frogs faced Texas A&M once midway through the season dropping the game 4-1.

Fresno State capped off their WAC tournament run with a 13-inning nailbiter win over Sacramento State to secure the automatic berth. They go to the Stanford Regional, where they are seeded #4 due to their poor regular-season record, and will play #1 seed Stanford. The Cardinal and the Bulldogs met earlier this year, with Stanford taking 2 of 3. In the Bulldogs' lone win, however. they ate alive Stanford pitching ace and possible #1 draft pick Mark Appel, with Aaron Judge hitting 2 home runs off 3 pitches from him.

A full printable bracket is available here. The Regionals begin on Friday, June 1. TCU and Fresno State's Regional will be broadcast on ESPN3.
