The Dukes needed just a win this afternoon to earn the C-A-A's automatic bid to the N-C-Double-A Tournament. V-C-U had other plans. The Rams scored three runs in the top of the 5th. Chris Gerrity slaps a base hit into center field scoring two runs and staking the Rams to a 4-to-nothing lead.

The Dukes tried to rally in the 9th. Jason Cushman hits a solo homer over the wall in left field, but that was it. V-C-U wins game one 4-to-2 and the deciding game 4-to-nothing.
