The Tribe fought back from an 8-0 hole, but its rally was not enough to beat Virginia Military Institute Tuesday in Lexington, Va., as VMI narrowly defeated the Tribe, 9-8. The Keydets were led by pitcher Chris Duty, who pitched five innings and allowed one earned run. Sophomore outfielder Cole Franklin had two RBIs and a run for the College. VMI jumped ahead early with a solo home run in the second inning and added six runs in the third. The Tribe mounted a strong comeback in the final inning but fell just short of tying the game. The Tribe drops to 16-9 with the loss and faces Delaware at home this weekend.
