Not hosting: Auburn will hit road for NCAA Regional

Arkansas was announced as one of 16 national seeds for the NCAA baseball regionals on Sunday. No. 24 Louisville's (43-17) chance of hosting an NCAA Regional game went down the drain with the loss. Relieving Miller, junior Bryan Hoeing would also struggle with his command a bit, as a wild pitch and single would bring home an additional two runs.

Mendoza, who finished the day 3-for-4 with three RBI and reached base five times, performed his heroics one year after hitting two homers and driving in four runs in FSU's 2017 title-game win over North Carolina. Regionals are set for Friday through Monday, with eight super regionals scheduled for June 8 through 11 to determine the College World Series field.

Despite losing six of their last seven games, the Gators still earned the No. 1 overall seed for the NCAA Regionals and will host Jacksonville, Florida Atlantic and Columbia in Gainesville this week.
