Horizon League Baseball Tournament 2012: UIC, Valparaiso Face Off In Winner-Takes-All Game

The University of Illinois-Chicago Flames are no stranger to the NCAA Baseball Regionals, having won the Horizon League tournament four times since 2003, including in 2007 when they hosted the tournament as they are this year. They now find themselves a game away from another postseason birth after defeating the Valparaiso Crusaders on Saturday night.

The Flames jumped out to an early lead on Saturday night, and wil surely be looking to get the same type of momentum going on Sunday. The winner of today's game will receive the Horizon League's automatic bid to this year's regionals, where they'll be sent to a double elimination mini-tournament with four total teams on the campus of the host school, which will likely be a team from the ACC, Big 12 or SEC.

Game date/time: Sunday, May 27, 12:00 p.m. CT

Location: Les Miller Field, Chicago, Ill.
