Both teams finished undefeated in their brackets to advance.  Here’s how they made the Championship game –

Emporia State 5, UC San Diego 3
Kellen Lane’s walk-off two-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth advanced Emporia State to the national championship game for the first time in school history. The home run was the first ever for Lane, who went 3-for-5. UC San Diego rallied from a 3-1 deficit with single runs in the sixth and eighth innings. Emporia State reliever Diego Soto pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings of relief for the win to improve to 1-0 with two saves in three appearances at the National Finals.  NCAA Recap , Emporia Recap

Lynn 7, Belmont Abbey 5
Daniel Flores’ fifth-inning two-run homer broke a 5-5 tie and relief pitchers Justin Figart and Tommy Kahnle combined to retire the final 13 batters as Lynn earned a spot in the national championship game for the first time in school history. Figart retired all seven batters he faced for the win and Kahnle retired the side in order in the eighth and ninth innings for the save. Weather delays forced an 11:14 p.m. start time. The game ended at 2:06 a.m. Lynn will take on Emporia State Saturday at noon as the two remaining unbeatens play a winner-takes-all championship game.  NCAA Recap , Lynn Recap
