After Chattanooga took a 1-0 first inning lead, Gordon scored four times in the bottom of the inning. The game went back and forth from that point until the Tigers took the lead in the eighth with three runs and then shut down the Highlanders over the final two innings to punch their ticket to Colorado. Gordon was led offensively by sophomore third baseman and leadoff hitter Aaron Dobbs who had three hits in the contest. 17th ranked Gordon ends its season with an impressive 41-23 record while 11th ranked Chattanooga (37-14) gets ready to play Hutchinson (KS) Community College in the first round of the JUCO World Series next Saturday.
