MARSHALL, Texas --- Texas Lutheran and Hardin-Simmons are the last two teams remaining in the 2005 ASC Baseball Championship Tournament Series, and will play for the conference title and a trip to the NCAA national tournament on Sunday.

On Saturday, Casey Rehfeld drove a two-out, two-run liner through the left side of the infield in the bottome of the ninth to give Texas Lutheran an 8-7 comeback win over East Texas Baptist and a spot in the championship game.

Hardin-Simmons ousted Concordia-Austin in Saturday's first elimination game, 11-6, to put East Texas Baptist out of contention with a 3-0 win in the second elimination game.

Sunday's conference title game is scheduled for a 12:05 p.m. start. HSU must beat Texas Lutheran twice to win the title while the Bulldogs need just one win to earn the trophy and NCAA berth.
