Cumberland Rallies fall short, Drop Two to Rockland Community College

In game two of the double header, Cumberland fought back from down 3-0 in the bottom of the 6th. The Dukes scored 6 runs to take a 3 run lead in to the 7th. Rockland came back with three runs of their own to knot things up at 6.  In the bottom of the seventh inning, the Dukes squandered an opportunity with runners in scoring position and then went on to give up two runs in the 8th inning.  After being shut down in the 8th, Cumberland was handed just the their third loss of the season 8-6 and dropped to 10-3 overall.  Cumberland will be back in action at home on Wednesday March 13th when they host the JV squad from Neumann University at 3PM.
