UNO Baseball – Conference Championship Scenarios – After 5/11

Filed under: Baseball,Omaha Mavericks — Jon Green @ 6:43 pm

UNO got a big 7-2 win (after being down 2-1 heading to the 8th) today to get the magic number down to 6. They also have 6 games left… SDSU unfortunately swept their DH so they have one more vs. Fort Wayne and then a DH at North Dakota State on Tuesday before the 4-game series in Omaha to decide the Summit title.

DH vs. Western Illinois on Tuesday the 14th
vs. South Dakota State on Thursday the 16th
DH vs. South Dakota State on Friday the 17th
vs. South Dakota State on Saturday the 18th

Now to look at the scenarios. On the left is what happens before the series. On the right is what needs to happen in the series to give UNO an outright title.

Remember UNO has 2 games, SDSU 3 games before they meet.
0 UNO wins/SDSU losses before the series –> UNO needs to take 3 of 4
1 UNO win/SDSU loss before the series –> UNO needs to take 3 of 4
2 UNO wins/SDSU losses before the series –> UNO needs to split the series
3 UNO wins/SDSU losses before the series –> UNO needs to split the series
4 UNO wins/SDSU losses before the series –> UNO needs to win a single game in the series
5 UNO wins/SDSU losses before the series –> UNO needs to win a single game in the series

This is the same idea, but for a share of the conference title.
Remember UNO has 2 games, SDSU 3 games before they meet.
0 UNO wins/SDSU losses before the series –> UNO needs to take 3 of 4 (outright… no chance at shared)
1 UNO win/SDSU loss before the series –> UNO needs to split the series
2 UNO wins/SDSU losses before the series –> UNO needs to split the series (outright… no chance at shared)
3 UNO wins/SDSU losses before the series –> UNO needs to win a single game in the series
4 UNO wins/SDSU losses before the series –> UNO needs to win a single game in the series (outright… no chance at shared)
5 UNO wins/SDSU losses before the series –> UNO is conference champs

If UNO sweeps Western Illinois (or SDSU loses 2 of the next 3… or SDSU loses 1 and UNO wins 1) then a split in the SDSU-UNO series will give UNO a conference title.
