Johns Hopkins is one victory from D-III College World Series

Top seed Johns Hopkins defeated No. 3 seed Rowan, 9-4, in the winners' bracket final at the NCAA Division III Mid-Atlantic regional Friday in Trenton, N.J., and is one win away from its third trip to the College World Series. Greg Harbeck (8-0) allowed one earned run and five hits in nine innings as the Blue Jays (42-4) tied the school record for victories set in 2008. Hopkins, which got three runs from James Teta and three RBIs from Brian Youchak, will play in the championship round at 5 p.m. today against the survivor of the losers' bracket. A win would send the Blue Jays to Appleton, Wis., for the World Series, and a loss would force a winner-take-all championship game at 1 p.m. Sunday. Rowan will play at 1 p.m. today against second-seeded Kean, which defeated third-seeded Widener, 8-2, Friday night; the winner will play Hopkins.

More Division III: Salisbury, playing in the losers' bracket of the South Regional in Fayetteville, N.C., rolled to a 12-1 victory over LaGrange and an 11-6 win over Mary Washington. Kyle Judson went the distance in the first game, scattered five hits. In the second game, Tim Kellinger hit a grand slam in the first inning. The Sea Gulls will play at 10a.m. today against top-seeded Shenandoah; Salisbury would need two wins today against the Hornets to earn a trip to Appleton.

MEAC: Abe Eubank was 5-for-5 with two home runs to lead Delaware State to a 14-2 win over fifth-seeded Coppin State in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference elimination game in Daytona Beach, Fla. The game was halted after the Eagles batted in the seventh inning because of the 10-run rule. Earlier in the day, Dwight Robinson hit his first two home runs of the season and Mark Reynoso had three hits and two RBIs, as Coppin State earned a 12-8 victory over sixth-seeded UMES.
