CAA Baseball Tournament 2012 VCU Vs. George Mason Final: After Seven Hours, Rams Win 11-7

The matchup between VCU and George Mason in the first-round of the 2012 CAA Baseball Tournament wound up spanning just over seven hours, thanks to a near five-hour rain delay beginning at 1:13 p.m. ET after lightning strikes in the area. At the time of the delay, the game was tied 2-2 in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Play resumed at 6:01 p.m. ET and was kickstarted with a solo home run by Chris Cook, giving George Mason a 3-2 lead. VCU re-took the lead in the next inning after plating two runs, but George Mason tied it again in the bottom of the inning.

VCU rallied late however, putting up four runs in the top of the ninth inning to give themselves an 11-5 lead and George Mason just couldn't match the scoring, playing only two runs in the bottom of the ninth and going down in the first game 11-7.
