The Dodgers win the Championship Series in 5 games

stl_college_baseball_logoDefensive miscues would prove to be the difference in a well-pitched game  by both sides, but with the Dodgers prevailing over the #1 seed Bandits 5-1 to capture the 2014 Metro Collegiate League Championship. The Bandits would make 3 fielding errors in the first 2 innings that led directly to the Dodgers 1st two runs. The Dodgers would pick up back-to-back doubles by Mark Henken and Pete Spradlin in the 3rd to go up 3-0. Lex Kaplan would deliver a 2-run double in the 8th to give a cushion to the big star of the night, pitcher Mike Lydonlorson.

The big righthander from Rockhurst University went the distance allowing just one run on a home run by Dan Manion in the 7th inning. Lydonlorson would strike out 4, but incredibly hold the Bandits without a walk all night. Lydonlorsa’s counterpart Nick Allgeyer wasn’t bad in his own right, allowing just 1 earned run in six innings, giving up 3 hits, striking out 5, and walking only 1.  Click here for the audio replay of the game
