Virginia’s Jarrett Parker (Jr., Stafford, Va.) went 3-for-4 with a grand slam and five RBI, while Steven Proscia (So., Suffern, N.Y.) snapped out of a recent slump with two triples and four RBI.

AUSTIN, Texas – Down a run in the final inning to the No. 1 college baseball team in America. At their place! No big deal. These are Ray Birmingham Lobos, who step to the plate with no fear in their heart and fearsome bats in their hands.
What the Lobos/Davids of New Mexico kind of did Saturday in Austin was reach into a back pocket, pull out a slingshot and knock Goliath on his rear in a stunning 6-5 Lobo win.
The first stone out of the Lobo slingshot in the ninth was a Justin Howard solo homer that pushed New Mexico into a 5-all tie.
The Lobos then nailed the win off a Max Willett bomb to deep left field that scored true freshman Devon Conley from third.
