Bluefield College Baseball wins NCCAA Mid-East Regional

There was high drama in Oakland City, Indiana on Wednesday afternoon. The Rams faced Hiwassee College in the NCCAA Mid-East Region Final.

The Tigers held a 5-2 advantage in the eighth inning, but that’s when the  Bluefield College bats came alive. Marcus Espinal chipped in a two-run double to help tie the game 5-5.

Then in the ninth, pinch hitter Carlos Torres sent the Rams home happy with a walk-off solo home run.

Bluefield College takes its second-consecutive Mid-East Region crown, 6-5. The Rams will also be making a third-straight appearance in the NCCAA World Series. The tournament will begin on May 22 in Easley, South Carolina.
