2011 College Baseball Tournament, Tempe Regional: New Mexico Heavy Underdogs Against Arizona St.

If it wasn't for a stunning upset over the TCU Horned Frogs in the Mountain West Conference Tournament Championship Game, the New Mexico Lobos wouldn't have made the NCAA Tournament. But now the 20-39 Lobos obtained the MWC's automatic bid and will be the No. 4 seed in the Tempe Regional.

It will be a tough draw as they face the No. 1 Arizona State Sun Devils. But the Sun Devils are a familiar foe to the Lobos as they played them in their season-opening series. It was a four-game series that was reduced to three, but the Lobos were unable to pick up a win in any of them. They came closest to victory in a 7-5 loss in the first game of a doubleheader, coming up short but scoring three runs over the last two innings.

Freshman 3B DJ Peterson leads the Lobos offensively, hitting .324/.385/.555 with 31 doubles, three triples and six homers. He's driven in a team-high 48 runs.
