Strong start by Leins keeps Navy alive against Army

As if seven baseball games against its bitter rival was not enough, Navy still has one more to play.

It’s a big one, and the Midshipmen are happy they are playing it.

Jared Leins had a massive performance, striking out eight and allowing two runs on four hits in eight-plus innings as Navy defeated Army, 4-2, to even the best-of-three Patriot League championship series at one.

First baseman Zach Stevens, catcher Christian Hodge, right fielder Liam Lowery and third baseman Jacob Williamson had two hits each for the Midshipmen, who bounced back from Friday night’s disappointing loss to the Black Knights.
