ASU earns a sweep in SIAC opener

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - After a rocky non-conference start, Albany State earned a sweep in it's SIAC opening series.

The Golden Rams defeated the Magicians 11-9 at home Sunday afternoon.

With a five-run lead heading into the top of the 9th, the Rams began to collapse. But the home team recovered to seal the victory.

That's a sign of growth for head coach Scot Hemmings.

"2 weeks ago this team would've folded and we would've lost that game," Hemmings said. "There is no doubt we would've kicked another ball or done something else but we battled through."

ASU improved to (3-0) in the SIAC, but is (4-15) overall thanks to a 13-game losing streak to start the season.

They travel to play Columbus state on Tuesday.
