The Anteaters fell to Missouri, 5-4, in an NCAA Regional elimination game on Saturday at Pepperdine University. The epic 14-inning struggle lasted four hours and 44 minutes, and featured enough golden opportunities for either team to have generated a blowout. Each team left 10 runners on base and each had six runners thrown out on the base paths.

It's not likely that anything could soften the sting of a pair of one-run losses that eliminated the UC Irvine baseball team from the NCAA Regionals. But the fact that Missouri, which sent the Anteaters packing with a 5-4 triumph in 14 innings on Saturday, went on to win the four-team mini-tournament, should help convince those concerned with such things that Coach Dave Serrano's program is not far from where he believes it can and should be.
