Colorado Mesa wins World Series opener in extra innings

CARY, N.C. — Trevor Elcock scored from second base on a bunt in the bottom of the 10th inning to lift Colorado Mesa to a 5-4 victory over St. Thomas Aquinas (New York) in the NCAA Division II World Series.

Elcock led off the inning with a double and scored when the Spartans’ third baseman made an errant throw to first trying to get Derrick Garcia, who bunted. It was Mesa’s first extra-innings victory this season.

Garcia’s bunt was one of six Mesa had in the game.

The Mavericks (45-11) took a 4-3 lead in the eighth on Jordan Liester’s run-scoring single, but St. Thomas scored in the ninth to force extra innings.

Garrett Carpenter picked up the victory in relief. The senior left-hander allowed one run on three hits in two innings.

Mesa plays Seton Hill (Pennsylvania) at 5 p.m. (Mountain Daylight Time) Tuesday.
