Avengers Fend Off Anne Arundel In Region XX Tourney Opener

WYE MILLS, MD --- ASA Baseball continued its impressive postseason with an exciting 14-12 win over Anne Arundel CC in the opener of the Region XX Division I Tournament this morning.

ASA - the #3 tournament seed - never trailed, but fought off a scrappy Pioneers team that kept chipping away at the Avengers' lead. AACC finally tied the game in the bottom of the 8th, 12-12, by scoring 4 runs. However, with two outs in the top of the 9th and momentum slipping away, sophomore IF Jonathan Tineo (Brooklyn, NY) hit a triple to drive in what would prove to be the game winning runs.

The Avengers will continue on in the tournament on Saturday, May 12 with an 11:00 AM game against the winner of the Harford/Potomac State game.
