When the final out of the College World Series was recorded on Wednesday night, there was a wild celebration on the pitcher's mound. And right in the middle of it was a familiar face for many Sudbury residents.
Sudbury resident Adam Ravenelle recorded six clutch outs to earn the save for Vanderbilt, which won the national championship in a 3-2 victory over Virginia.
Ravenelle came in to a sticky situation in the bottom of the eighth as there were two runners on when he was summonsed.
But the local right hander got the first out on a sacrifice to start things in the right direction. Ravenelle hit the next batter, and then with the bases loaded recorded a ground out force play at home and ended the inning with a grounder to shortstop.
The ninth was drama free for Ravenelle, as he set down the Cavaliers in order to seal the national title.
