Hail Caseres! Three-run homer keeps JMU undefeated


By Stuart Smith


WILMINGTON, N.C. – James Madison’s Steven Caseres hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the first inning and the Dukes never looked back, rolling to a 9-4 win over George Mason (29-24) in Game 6 of the Colonial Athletic Association Championship.

JMU (36-17) sophomore outfielder Alex Foltz went 4 for 4, scoring two runs and knocking in another. He was also a force on the basepath, stealing two bases. Junior southpaw Justin Wood pitched 7.0 innings for the Dukes, giving up three runs on six hits while striking out six.

George Mason was led by Scott Krieger who went 3 for 5 with a double.

Mason returns to action on Friday at Noon in an elimination game against UNC Wilmington. JMU will play the winner of that game at 7:00 p.m. on Friday.
