VCU Vs. Towson, 2012 CAA Baseball Tournament: Rams Stay Alive With 14-9 Win

After falling into an early 3-0 hole, the VCU Rams offense came alive against the Towson Tigers to move on in the 2012 CAA Tournament at JMU in Harrisonburg. The Rams had four innings in which they scored at least three runs, sending home the Tigers by a margin of 14-9.

First baseman Brent Mikionis did plenty of damage on his own, putting together a dream night at the plate. Mikionis went three for four, knocking in five runs and scoring two more. A large chunk of that came on a three-run home run in the bottom of the second which quickly brought the Rams back to even after falling behind by three. He singled home two more an inning later. The VCU offense would quiet down again until the 7th, when they put another 4-run inning together. Joey Cujas then capped off the big night at the plate by hammering a three-run homer to make it 14-9.

Towson tried to make things interesting in their last at-bat, but the deficit was simply too monumental. The Tigers scored five runs in their last at-bat to make it slightly more interesting. VCU pitcher Kyle Haynes was credited with giving up eight of the nine Towson runs, but thankfully his offense had removed all doubt by the time the avalanche came on in the 9th.

VCU will now play Hofstra on Friday at 3:30 p.m. ET.
