Today at beautiful Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx, the Jaspers clinched themselves a playoff berth in the MAAC Tournament next weekend in Fishkill, NY by beating Siena 19-18 in 10 innings.
We were down 5-0 before we even got to bat in the 1st. It got worse - we were down 9-2 after 3 innings. Down 12-5 after 6 innings. After they put a 5 spot up in top of the 7th to extend it to 17-5. We wound up scoring 14 runs over the final 3+ innings and walking off with a huge win. Down 12 runs with 9 outs to go - down to our last out in the 9th and a freshman doubled to cut it to 1, then another freshman hit a slicing flyball to left field and the guy tracked it but dropped it - tie game.
Here's a link to the box score - don't try to print it, lot of ink: Manhattan Jaspers 19, Siena Saints 18 (10 innings).
Are you kidding me?!?!?!
