OMAHA, Neb. - The Creighton Baseball team will open the MVC Tournament on Tuesday, May 21 as the No. 3 seed.
The Bluejays first opponent will present a bit of Déjà vu as Creighton faces No. 6 Indiana State ace, Sean Manaea. Creighton opened the 2012 MVC Tournament against Manaea, posting a 5-0 win.
Joining the Jays and Sycamores in the top bracket of the MVC Tournament are the second-seeded Wichita State Shockers and No. 7 Southern Illinois. Creighton downed Southern Illinois in the 2012 MVC Championship game and bested Wichita State in the 2011 MVC Championship game.
With a victory on Tuesday, Creighton would face the winner of the Wichita State/Southern Illinois game on Wednesday, May 22 at 4 p.m. Should the Jays fall against Indiana State, Creighton would battle the losing team in the Shockers/Salukis battle on Wednesday at 9 a.m.
