Stunning Comeback Gives ASU Confidence

Last Saturday, the Albany State baseball team completed a comeback for the record books. Fittingly, the team's motto came directly in to playâ""it's not how you start, it's how you finish."
In the series finale against Tuskegee, the Golden Rams responded from a nine-deficit twice, scoring seven runs in two separate innings for a staggering 24-17 extra-inning victory.
"For them to be able to extend the game, and give us a chance to win, this shows what kind of kids I got," ASU head coach Ken Conner said.
It's the most runs Albany State has posted since scoring 22 in a road win at Lemoyne-Owen.
Junior Dexter Moody continued to lead the Golden Rams with his speed and power. The dual sport star finished the game 6-8 with two home runs and eight RBI's.
"After we sucked up our pride and played as a team, we showed what we can do. (When we play like that) we'll come out victorious every time," Moody said.
More than a big confidence booster for Albany State, the comeback win kept the Golden Rams near the top of the SIAC standings. At 10-1 in the conference, ASU hopes to keep rolling in the SIAC.
The Golden Rams face Morehouse College at home this weekend to enter the final three SIAC series' of the year.
