Baseball Advances to Championship Series After 5-3 Win
The Army West Point Baseball Team is heading back to the Patriot League Championship Series after a 5-3 win over Holy Cross here Sunday night. After the two teams split a doubleheader on Saturday it all came down to a decisive Game 3 to determine the winner of the Patriot League semifinal series. Unfortunately, mother nature stepped in and forced what ended up being a eight hour rain delay. The contest was originally scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. but was pushed back until 9 p.m. due to rain. The Black Knights didn't seem to mind as they jumped out to a 2-0 advantage after two innings. The visitors then added three additional runs throughout the fourth and fifth inning to create a 5-0 gap between the teams. Holy Cross wouldn't go down without a fight though as it scored three unanswered runs over the final three innings to make things interesting at the end. Army would eventually register the final out of the game to secure the win and their second-straight trip to the league championship series. Read more.
