S. Union ousts CACC

Published 2:07pm Monday, May 21, 2012

Southern Union scored three unearned runs off of Central Alabama starting pitcher Jonathon Black and advanced to the ACCC tournament consolation finals with a 3-2 win over CACC.

Black went the distance on the mound for CACC, going nine innings in the loss.

The defeat ends Central Alabama’s 2012 season, as the Trojans lost in the winners bracket of the tournament to Shelton State earlier this week.

2012 saw Central Alabama baseball reach new heights compared to the last few years of the program, with the Trojans winning 18 straight games, a new school record, and achieving a national ranking of No. 2 by the NJCAA in April.

“This was the type of season that we have wanted to have since I have been here,” CACC head coach Wynn Fletcher said.
“Our sophomores have done a great job for us over the past two years, and our freshman have work to do for next year.”

Central Alabama will also have numerous players sign college scholarships throughout the summer months.

“I’m going to miss these sophomores and everything that they have done for the program,” Fletcher added.
“We are pleased with this season, but we aren’t satisfied.”
