The season is on the line, it's do or die! UHD (18-7) overcame a 5-0 deficit and were one out away from elimination when the Gators staged an incredible comeback, scoring two runs in the top of the last inning to stun #16 Metro State University of Denver in an elimination game. The Gators spotted the Roadrunners a five run lead after three innings and chipped away at the lead scoring in each of the next three frames. The slow but steady comeback enabled the Gators to enter the final inning down 5-4 and set the stage for the dramatic final inning.
UHD now faces #4 Air Force Academy (16-1) in another elimination game. The Gators must win this game and the next in order to advance to the NCBA D2 World Series. The Falcons are riding a 15 game winning streak which included a 3-0 win over the Gators the game before.
Previously UHD defeated Metro State 10-8 in the tournament opener for both teams.
