ODAC ALERT: Jackets eliminate Tigers; go to Championship Round in Baseball Tourney

Daniel Byrd pitched a gem, scattering eight hits over eight innings, and freshman Will Jennings got the save in the 9th as Randolph-Macon baseball eliminated arch-rival Hampden-Sydney 2-1 in the ODAC Baseball Tournament Saturday night.

Back-to-back triples and a sacrifice fly accounted for the Jackets' two runs in the top of the 9th.  A throwing error allowed the Tigers to score a run, but with the tying run at 3rd, Jennings fanned Spencer Wiles to preserve the win.

Tomorrow, Randolph-Macon faces Bridgewater in the ODAC Final Round.  Bridgewater beat the Jackets earlier today 6-2, so the Jackets will have to beat the Eagles twice to take the 2013 ODAC Tournament Title.
