The Xavier baseball team won its first Big East baseball title to advance to the NCAA tournament.
 
XU pitcher Trent Astle threw a complete game shutout as the Musketeers beat Creighton 5-0 in the championship game in Brooklyn.
 
"They have overcome a lot," said Xavier head coach Scott Googins.  "In every sense of the word it's a team.  I'm proud of them."
 
The Musketeers advance to the NCAA tournament field of 64 and will learn their destination and opponent during the tournament selection show Monday at noon.
 
It's the second trip to the NCAA tournament in XU baseball program history.
