A-Sun: It's a Race for All-Tourney MVP
By Bryan App - May 26, 2007
As I struggle to fill out my all-tournament team ballot, there's little question who will take MVP honors. It's really a two-man race between Belmont's Kane Simmons and Jacksonville's Pete Clifford, and it's going down to the wire.
Simmons gave Belmont a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the third with a two-out solo homer to right field. It was the 14th homer of the season and second of the tournament for Simmons, who came into the day batting .500 in the tournament with a tournament-best six RBI.
Clifford, the A-Sun Player of the Year, responded in the top of the fifth with a two-run shot to right, his second of the day, third of the tournament and league-best 15th of the season. He came into the day batting .385.
Jacksonville leads 5-4 going into the sixth.
