Dillard baseball shocked the GCAC by winning the 2023 GCAC Championship in just the program’s first year of existence.
After losing to No. 1 seed Rust College in the quarterfinal round 10-1, Dillard battled back and won two games in a row to claim the championship.
In the championship round, Tyler Fitch was the hero on offense as he drove in three of the Bleu Devils five runs in a 5-2 win over Rust.
In the winner-take-all second game, Dillard scored five runs in the eighth inning to break a 3-3 tie capped off by a Jalen Ayers 3-run inside-the-park home run.
Dylan Scott would also get it done on the mound as he pitched a complete game, only allowing two runs and striking out seven over nine innings to clinch the title.
