Here is Baseball America's recap of the NCAA baseball regional victories by Baylor and Oklahoma:

Baylor, Waco Regional
Baylor completed its comeback from its tournament-opening loss to Oral Roberts by winning its second straight game against Dallas Baptist, 8-2. The Bears scored 33 runs during their four straight wins and were in complete control of both wins against the Patriots. All nine Baylor starters recorded hits as part of a balanced 12-hit attack Monday, with Dan Evatt (3-for-4, 3 R) and Jake Miller (1-for-3, R, 3 RBI) leading the charge. Dillon Newman (5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 5 K) picked up the win with sterling relief of ace Josh Turley (4 IP, 5 H, 2 ER).

Baylor heads to super regionals for the first time since its 2005 CWS run. The Bears will host Arkansas.

Oklahoma, Charlottesville Regional
Oklahoma needed to beat Appalachian State twice Monday to win the regional, and the Sooners did just that. Cody Reine (2-for-5, HR, 3B, 6 RBI), the hero of the 2010 Charlottesville Super Regional, continued to feel right at home at Davenport Field in the first game, and Matt Oberste (4-for-4, 4 R, 4 RBI, 2 2B) helped him lead the Sooners to a 14-6 win. Jack Mayfield's two-run double highlighted OU's three-run first inning in the second game, and the Sooners never looked back, winning 5-2. Junior Drew Harrison (6 IP, 3 H, 2 ER), who entered the game with nine innings on the season, earned the win - his first career decision. Oklahoma's 2010 postseason reunion tour (continues next with a date with South Carolina - the team that knocked it out of the CWS that year.
