REDBIRDS THREE-PEAT

Mac Caples named Series Most Outstanding Player

Mac Caples (Virginia Tech) hit a booming two run homerun and a two run single to lead the Baltimore Redbirds to their third consecutive Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League (CRCBL) Title with a decisive 7-0 victory over the Bethesda Big Train on Saturday, August 2, 2014.  Caples, who also saved two runs with a diving catch in the bottom of the first, was named the Most Outstanding Player in the series.

 

The Redbirds and Big Train have now played in the championship series for six consecutive seasons.

 

Matt Pirro (Wake Forest) was the pitching hero for the Redbirds, pitching seven shutout innings.  He allowed only five hits, walked three and struck out seven.  Justin Dunn (Boston College) finished for Baltimore, allowing only one base runner (on a walk) and striking out two.

 

The Redbirds scored the only run they would need in the 4th inning on singles by Garrett Hudson (Virginia Tech) and Nick Cieri (Maryland) and a sacrifice fly by JB Woodman (Ole Miss). The Redbirds made it 2-0 in the top of the 5th on a two out double by Lee Lipinski (Rider) and an RBI single by Mike Parsons (Rider). 

 

The Redbirds scored three more to extend their lead to 5-0 in the 6th.  Two singles and a Big Train error led to one run and Caples hit his homerun that knocked out Big Train starter Brandon Rhodes.

 

Baltimore added two insurance runs in the 8th on two out singles by Woodman and Cody Sherlin (Armstrong Atlantic State), a wild pitch and Caples’ 2 RBI single.

 

Congratulations to the Redbirds on winning their third consecutive title.

 

Notes: The Redbirds won 9 consecutive games in July to clinch a playoff berth and a first round bye.  They defeated Rockville 11-2 and Bethesda 7-3 to reach the Championship round.  The Redbirds lost a heartbreaker to Bethesda 2-1 on Friday before Saturday’s victory.
