Army and Navy brought the latest installment of their athletic rivalry to Camden Yards in Baltimore for a baseball doubleheader Sunday that was briefly delayed by a short snow squall.

Snow caused a 23-minute delay between the sixth and seventh innings of the doubleheader’s first game, which Army would go on to win 5-3 in 10 innings.

The Black Knights scored two runs in the top of the 10th to get away from the Mids, who used two hits in the bottom of the seventh to plate the game-tying run.

Army went on to win the second game, 8-2.
The Black Knights improved to 11-12 overall and 4-0 in the Patriot League with the sweep. Navy moved to 18-8 overall and 4-4 in the Patriot League.

The rivals will meet again April 20 for a game at Fenway Park in Boston before playing two more in West Point, New York.
