The Kansas State Wildcats had a perfect weekend in the NCAA Baseball Regionals, going 3-0 to advance to the Super Regionals after a 7-2 win over Southeast Missouri State.

It’s the first time the Wildcats have reached the Super Regionals since 2013, and of course, JJ Slack knew how to celebrate in style, with a flip on the mound after the final out.

 

Here’s a look.

The “Wild Thing”, as he’s known, gave the fans exactly what they wanted on Sunday night. The Cats rolled through the weekend, beating Louisiana Tech on Friday 19-4, then upsetting No. 5 Arkansas 7-6 on Saturday, followed by the 7-2 win on Sunday over SEMO.

 

Kansas State’s win on Sunday was a product of small ball, with the Cats producing only singles, 12 of them on the day, to roll to the victory over the Redhawks. Ty Ruhl started the game and allowed just two hits in four innings of work.

The Wildcats have only reached the NCAA Tournament five times in program history. But now, the Cats travel to No. 12 Virginia for a three-game series that will decide who goes to Omaha for the College World Series, which would be the first trip in Kansas State baseball history.
