Dukes Baseball One Win Away From Region XIX Title

Dukes Baseball One Win Away From Region XIX Title

The Dukes are now one win away from giving the Cumberland Baseball Program its first region championship in program history. The Dukes beat Brookdale 6-1 in game 1 in Red Bank, NJ and then hopped into three vans to travel down to Ocean County College in Toms River.

The Dukes then took care of Ocean County College, who was essentially playing a home game, with a score of 6-2. Cumberland had the perfect combination of hitting and pitching. Starters Josh O'Neill and Cody Stashak both went the distance in each game turning in fine performances.

The Dukes will play the winner of Ocean County College and Gloucester County College today thirty minutes after the winner is determined. That game will start at 12 noon. A win for Cumberland today would give them a region title and a berth in the national tournament. If the Dukes lose today, a winner take all game will be played Sunday at noon.
