There's another reason to party on the diamond at the University of Tampa; for the second year in a row, the Spartans will play for a baseball national championship.
Tampa beat Florida Southern 3-0 on Sunday to advance to the championship round. The Spartans will begin play in the title round next Sunday. Tampa has six national championships in school history.
UT needed three comeback wins on its home field this weekend just to get a chance to face the Mocs in the title game. They got a incredible performance when they needed it most from pitcher Trey Oest.
Oest threw a complete game, one-hitter and struck out five hitters in the win. He hadn't pitched in three weeks because of tendinitis but has now sent his Spartans to in the championship round.
