Rams fall 1 run short

Your Berkner Ram Varsity Baseball Team played another fantastic baseball game last night at Ram Ballpark. Seniors Garrett Randall and Elias Munoz combined efforts on the bump to limit LH to 5 hits over 7 innings. The two seniors also combined for 3 of Berkner’s 5 hits for the game. In the bottom of the 7th the Rams had the tying run on second base in the form of Sophomore Bryce Drayton and Munoz at the dish. A well-hit ball and base path hustle created a bang-bang play at first base that unfortunately did not go Berkner’s way. LH squeaked out a last-minute 3-2 victory. Berkner will next face WT White on Tuesday March 20 at WTW at 5p and again Friday March 23 at Ram Ballpark at 730p. Come out and see your Rams play great baseball!
