A-Sun: Stetson Claims Emotional Win

By Bryan App - May 25, 2007

That play at the plate must have made Stetson hopping, seething, Naomi-Campbell-with-a-cell-phone mad.

After throwing out Mercer's potential go-ahead run at the plate in the top of the inning, Shane Jordan led off the bottom of the 11th with a double to the right field fence. A sac bunt and two intentional walks later, Jordan scored on an Adam Tindle sacrifice fly to foul territory in shallow right field, narrowly beating the throw with a headfirst slide.

With that, top-seeded Stetson took a 2-1 win against second-seeded Mercer, which was eliminated from the A-Sun Tournament with the loss.

It was a questionable decision by Mercer right-handed right fielder John Dortch to catch the foul pop fly to say the least. It would have taken a perfect throw across his body, while running into the fence, to catch Jordan, Stetson's fastest base runner.

Up next, fourth-seeded Jacksonville will face fifth-seeded Gardner-Webb in an elimination game. First pitch is set for 3:10 p.m.
