Philadelphia Baseball Review - Phillies News, Rumors and Analysis
College Baseball in Philadelphia
La Salle (32-17, 15-5) took care of business in Fordham over the weekend, taking three-of-four from the Rams to remain at the top of the Atlantic 10 North Division. The Explorers will face Saint Joseph's in a four-game set this weekend to finish the regular season. 

The Explorers can clinch the division with a split against the Hawks, despite what Rhode Island does this weekend against UMass. 

Saint Joseph's (17-17, 11-9) chances of reaching the A10 postseason are a bit more complicated. The Hawks would have to split the series with La Salle, have Rhode Island lose four games against UMass, and have Fordham drop at least one game against Saint Bonaventure. 

La Salle now has 32 wins, the most in program history. The 15 conference wins are the most for the program since 2013. 

Penn State-Abington (20-6, 14-2) was swept on Saturday by Penn State-Harrisburg in the NEAC Championship. The Nittany Lions now have to rely on their efforts to secure a potential at-large bid when the NCAA unveils the D-III tournament on Sunday night. The team was ranked No 1. in the Mid-Atlantic Region for the past two weeks. 

Immaculata (18-5, 14-4) also is eyeing a potential bid to the NCAA D-III tournament, either via winning the American East Conference tourney or as an at-large. The Macs face Cabrini (15-9, 13-5) on Wednesday, with the winner advancing to face Marymount in the conference final this weekend. 

Jefferson (23-11, 18-7) is hoping to secure an at-large D-II bid after falling to Dominican in the CACC Title Game on Saturday. The Rams have only made two NCAA tournament appearances, their most recent coming in 1990. 

West Chester (20-11, 20-10) lost to Bloomsburg in a PSAC quarterfinal on Saturday, meaning they too need an at-large bid to play in the D-II tournament.
