NEW YORK (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles lead off the Major League Baseball Draft for the first time in 30 years and Oregon State catcher Adley Rutschman is a heavy favorite to be selected No. 1 on Monday night.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.

The Huskies would need to beat Oklahoma State on Sunday night and again Monday to return to super regionals for the first time since 2011.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Alex Binelas had four RBI including a two-run homer, and Michael Kirian recorded the final strike in a tense ninth inning as top-seeded Louisville survived rival Indiana 9-7 in an NCAA Tournament elimination game.

Kirian relieved Michael McAvene after an ejection and struck out Ryan Fineman to end the game.
