The Colonel baseball team gained its second win of the season against Army at the Coca-Cola Classic in South Carolina. The Colonels beat Army 8-6 after jumping out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning.

Eastern made it a 6-2 lead at the end of the sixth inning, but Army tried to come back in the following two innings.  The Colonels refused to let the lead slip away, and a solo home run by senior Shaun Ball ended any hope of the Cadets coming back for the win. The home run was Ball’s first of the season.

Senior starter Anthony Bazzani (1-1) notched his first win of the season after allowing just one run in five innings pitched.
