Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The UMD baseball team will open play in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) postseason tournament on Wednesday night, that following a dramatic sweep on the last weekend of the regular season.

The Bulldogs entered the final four games on the outside looking in as far as the NSIC playoffs, but four wins against the University of Mary put the team in the tournament as a #6 seed.

UMD now faces the top-seeded Minnesota State-Mankato at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, the final game of the first round in the double elimination tournament.

For the Bulldogs, it marks their third straight appearance in the NSIC postseason tournament, all of those being decided on the regular season's final weekend.
