To Capture Patriot League Baseball Championship

Christian Hodge crouched down in the batter’s box and hung his head while everyone in the Army dugout stormed the field.


Hodge continued staring straight down at the ground as the Black Knights formed a mass pile of humanity on the pitcher’s mound surrounding reliever Cam Opp.
  
Hodge and the rest of the Navy baseball team could not bear to watch as archrival Army celebrated capturing the Patriot League
Championship on Terwilliger Brothers Field.

Freshman Anthony Giachin delivered a two-run double in the bottom of the seventh inning to drive in the winning runs and the bullpen made it stand as Army defeated Navy, 5-3, on Monday afternoon at Max Bishop Stadium to sweep the Patriot League Championship series.

“This is indescribable. It’s what we’ve been working toward all year, and to have it all come together this weekend against our archrival is a great feeling,” said Giachin, a third baseman who was named Most Valuable Player of the Patriot League Tournament.

Senior catcher Jon Rosoff went 2 for 4 with two RBIs and a run scored for Army, which captured the championship for the first time since securing consecutive crowns in 2012 and 2013. Junior infielder Josh White singled in a run then scored for the Black Knights (34-23), who earned an automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament.

“We did this for our two seniors — Jon Rosoff and Matt Ball. They’ve been working their butts off for four years and to finally get this for them is huge for the underclassmen and huge for the program,” Giachin said. “We did what it took to get the win today — a lot of timely hitting and a lot of shutdown innings after we scored the go-ahead runs.”
