The Brookhaven College Baseball Team beat the Cedar Valley Suns May 9 on Bears Diamond 20-10 to clinch their second consecutive Metro Athletic Conference regular season title.
The Bears clinched a share of the title with a 8-5 win over the Suns on May 6, but erased any thought of ‘co’ preceding ‘champions’ early in this game. The first 13 men the Bears sent to the plate in the bottom of the first inning reached safety. Overall, the Bears sent 18 men to the plate in a 33 minute run in that inning to jump out to a 14-0 lead.
The team then run ruled the Suns on a walk off single in the bottom of the 7th to clinch the Title. This is the first back-to-back regular season titles in the 40 seasons of Brookhaven baseball! The team is currently ranked 8th in the nation and finishes the regular season with a 21-9 MAC record and 31 wins. Go Bears!
