Baseball Has Season Come To An End

May 21, 2012

The DC3 Baseball team played some of their best baseball this past weekend.  After giving the defending champs from Western Oklahoma State College (WOSC) a run for their money, The Conqs fell just short of advancing to the College World Series.  On Day 1, The Conqs struggled in Game 1 against WOSC, losing 12-4.  That set up an elimination game with the Missouri Region Champ, Longview CC.  After the lead changing several times, DC was able to hold on for a 12-7 victory.  After going 1-1 on Friday and Western eliminating Longview CC, The Conqs had to beat WOSC twice on Saturday.  Dodge showed how tough they were, battling back from a 6-2 deficit to defeat WOSC 7-6 in Game 1 to force a 2nd championship game.  In Game 2, DC again found themselves in an early hole, losing 7-0.  Dodge rallied, making the score 7-5 in the 9th inning with the bases loaded and 2 outs, but the Conqs were unable to complete the comeback after WOSC struck out the final batter.  DC finished the year with a 25-31 record.
