Catching up with the GoASU memorable games countdown starting on July 4th
Game 2: Baseball 6, Virginia 5
We ranked this game at the #3 spot in our countdown. This was a truly memorable game considering what was at stake. Both Appalachian and Virginia were playing for the right to be beaten twice in a regional championship. The game was played a day late, but brought a great crowd on a Sunday afternoon in Charlottesville. The Mountaineers jumped on the Cavaliers early with six runs in the first two innings. Seth Grant pitched his heart out before giving way to Ryne Frankoff and Nathan Hyatt to close the game.
We improved to 18/29 in the countdown and will most assuredly guess the top game correctly, which we believe is the 1-0 Baseball win over LSU.
