DAY TWO, GAME TWO: The 7th seeded ROOSEVELT UNIVERSITY LAKERS faced the 6 seeds – the SAINT AMBROSE UNIVERSITY FIGHTING BEES. Runs were easy to come by in this apparently “Defense-Free” game which found the Lakers leading 5-3 in the 1st Inning.
The Fighting Bees went up 7-5 by the 4th, then 10-9 by the time the 6th Inning ended. Roosevelt University retook the lead by a count of 12-11 in the 8th, but extra Innings were needed because of a 13-13 tie in the 9th.
