Washington, DC.- The Bison broke their 16
game losing streak as they defeated Valley Forge Christian College
Going into the final stretch of games the Gallaudet University Bison knew they had a great chance to close the season on an upbeat note. The frustrating and heartbreaking conference schedule has mercifully come to an end, and the Bison finish the season against five non-conference opponents. Valley Forge represented an opportunity Monday afternoon, and the Bison took it, beating the Patriots 4-3 in a game that turned close in the final innings. Jeremy Shepps, in the midst of a stellar freshman campaign, took the mound for the Bison. With the help of strong defense by his teammates, Shepps put in a complete game, 8 strikeout performance to get the win.
Offensively, the Bison did just enough damage and broke out the bats long enough to hold the lead throughout the game. Timely hitting by John Moore Jr. aided Shepps on the mound, and gave the Bison their third win of the year. Moore finished the game going 2 for 4 with an rbi. The Bison are back in action Friday when they will host Baptist Christian (PA) at 3:00 pm.
