ELGIN, Ill. --- St. Ambrose University captured its first-ever Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Baseball Tournament title when the Bees finished off a sweep of the tournament field with a 2-0 victory of Saint Xavier University on Tuesday night at Robert A. Hoffer Field on the campus of Judson University.

St. Ambrose went a perfect 4-0 in the tournament to extend its winning streak to a season-long 14 games.  The Bees will now take their 28-23 record into the NAIA National Tournament – Opening Round, which runs May 15-18 at one of nine potential sites.  Pairings will be announced Thursday at 3 p.m.

St. Ambrose will be joined by Judson in representing the CCAC in the Opening Round field.  The Eagles (37-18) earned the league's other bid by winning the CCAC regular-season title.

Recapping Tuesday:

Saint Xavier 8, St. Francis 4 (Box): Saint Xavier took control early with a six-run second inning to go up 7-0 and never let the Saints get closer than three runs the rest of the night.  St. Francis actually outhit the Cougars, 10-8, despite Saint Xavier starter Tyler Hebel (7-5) taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning.  Alex Neufeld accounted for half of the Cougars' runs by driving in a pair and scoring two other times.  Matt Bunetta also drove in two runs, while Ben Zordani went 2-for-4 with an RBI.  Pat Michalak drove in two of the four Saint runs and collected a pair of hits.

St. Ambrose 2, Saint Xavier 0 (Box): Jake Sheley and Cooper Sant Amour combined on a four-hit shutout to bring home the title to the Bees.  Sheley (8-7) allowed three hits over the first six innings before Sant Amour closed things out, allowing just one hit over the final three frames.  The save was Sant Amour's ninth of the season.  Mike Miller and Andrew Barreto drove in the two St. Ambrose runs with singles in the third inning.
