The Walters State Senators started the NJCAA D1 World Series ranked the #2 team in the nation. The Senators opponent Delgado Community College Dolphins also ranked inside the top ten at #7. On paper looks like a close matchup of top ten teams. However, that is why the game is played because in the first inning the lower ranked Dolphins got the scoring started by way of a two run homerun. Cody Ducote hit the homerun giving the Dolphins a 2-0 lead early. Walters State countered scoring six in the 2nd inning and five in the 4th inning.
Delgado got four back in the 5th inning only to see the Senators get three back in the 9th inning. Walters State wound up winning 14-8 in game two of the NJCAA D1 World Series. Both the Senators and the Dolphins combined for 29 hits in the game. In those 29 hits came three homeruns between Walters State and Delgado.
Walters State moves on in the winners bracket to face McLennan CC in round 2. Delgado falls down into the losers bracket and will face San Jacinto in the first elimination game of the tournament.
