Ardino picked up one of the biggest wins in program history in a 19-18 extra inning victory over Siena on Friday at Van Cortlandt Park. With the Jaspers facing a must-win scenario to qualify for the MAAC Championship, he entered the ballgame in the eighth inning with no outs, the Jaspers trailing 17-12 and a runner on first base. Ardino rouse to the challenge and retired 12 of 14 batters faced and did not allow a hit as the Jaspers made the unthinkable comeback. In the top of the 10th inning, he recorded three straight outs from the middle of the Saints' order.
