All tournament games need to be completed by the NCAA deadline for NCAA tournament selection.

0 games played = highest seed
1 games played = highest seed
2 games played = highest seed
3 games played = highest remaining seed
4 games played = highest remaining seed
5 games played = highest remaining seed
6 games played = winner of game 6 (If game 6 is not played to completion [5 innings] with a decision, the team that is 2-0 advances.)
