SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - Sometimes, you just have to play mean to win. At least that's what Shepherd College baseball coach Wayne Riser told his team as they prepared for visiting Binghamton (N.Y.) University on Saturday.
The Rams used the big inning again, sparked by their catalyst Rich Pell, to dispense with the Colonials, 7-2, in cold and blustery conditions at Fairfax Field.
"The conditions were not ideal," said Riser. "But I told them that at the end of nine innings, somebody's taking home a win. In less than ideal situations, usually it's the team that's meaner that gets the "W". We had to really focus and prepare mentally."
