Rams steal series from Aggies in walk-off fashion

SAN ANGELO, Texas — A walk-off win is arguably one of the most exciting events sports has to offer.

Those in attendance at Foster Field witnessed the exciting feat on April 5, 2014 when the Angelo State Rams defeated the Cameron Aggies in stunning fashion, winning 7-6 and taking the series.

The Rams and Aggies entered the bottom of the ninth tied 6-6. Senior infielder Christian Summers got things going for ASU with a leadoff double.

Junior outfielder Brett David then laid down a sacrifice bunt that was airmailed down the left-field line by Cameron’s junior pitcher Josh Neilson. Summers reacted to the error and rounded third to give the Rams the win.

The win marked Angelo State’s fourth walk-off in its last eight games. However, the Rams finished the year 27-26 overall, 15-20 in the Lone Star Conference and missed out on the postseason.
