* USCAA *
CHAMPIONSHIP GAME – Yesterday was the final day of the 2014 World Series for the USCAA (United States Collegiate Athletic Association). The 2nd seeded LINDENWOOD UNIVERSITY AT BELLEVILLE LYNX were 3-0 in Series play and were simply awaiting their title game opponent. That opponent would be the winner of the clash between the 4th seeded NEWPORT NEWS APPRENTICE SCHOOL BUILDERS and the top seeded defending champions – the UNIVERSITY OF CINCINATTI AT CLERMONT COUGARS. That game was knotted up at 2-2 in the 4th Inning but in the 5th the Cougars took a 4-2 lead and rode that score all the way to the win. Everett Osborne was the winning pitcher.
The battle for the USCAA crown was pretty much of an anticlimax after that exciting game. The Lynx went up 4-0 by the end of the 1st Inning, 5-0 after the 2nd and then led 9-2 after UC- Clermont scored their only runs in the 3rd. LU- Belleville then masterfully logged even more runs in the 6th, 7th and 8th Innings to take the title by a final score of FIFTEEN to TWO! Dylan Arvai got the win. * CONGRATULATIONS TO THE LYNX, THE 2014 CHAMPIONS OF USCAA BASEBALL! *
