After scoring a run in the top of both the seventh and eighth innings, the visiting Avengers of ASA College pulled to within one. The game entered the bottom half of the eighth inning with Cumberland clinging to a 6-5 lead. And then the Dukes blew the game wide open, scoring seven runs in that inning. Chris Seibert then slammed the door in the ninth to secure the 13-5 win.
The Dukes are now 17-5 on the year and will play four games over the weekend, weather permitting. Cumberland will host Lehigh Carbon on Saturday afternoon and then are scheduled to travel down to Chesapeake, MD for a doubleheader at Chesapeake College. Both doubleheader are set to start at 12PM. We will keep you updated as to any changes due to weather.
