For the third time in four years under the direction of head coach Steve Rodriguez, the Baylor Bears have advanced to an NCAA Regional.
Baylor (34-17) earned a No. 2 seed in college baseball's annual postseason tournament. The Bears will play Loyola Marymount (32-23) Friday at 3 p.m., and will face either No. 1 overall seed UCLA (47-8) or Omaha (31-22-1) Saturday.
The Bears made a trip to California as a No. 2 seed one year ago, but dropped a pair of games to Cal State Fullerton and host Stanford.
