Dukes Fall to Gloucester, Get One More Crack at Title

Dukes Fall to Gloucester, Get One More Crack at Title

In a grind-it-out game between two of the regions best programs, Gloucester edged Cumberland 5-4 to force a deciding game Sunday for the Region XIX Title.  The Roadrunners scored twice in the top of the eighth inning and then held on for the victory.

The Dukes threatened in the final frame of the inning with runners on second and third with two out, but couldn't get the big hit to finish their first crack at the Region Championship.  Luckily, the Dukes will have one more shot tomorrow to seal the deal.  The two teams will square off for all of the marbles starting at 12 noon. The game will be played at Ocean County College.
