NEWBERRY, S.C. - Newberry College, trailing 6-3 in the fifth inning against Bluefield College, put up five of seven runs off Dustin Smith (Conway, S.C.) home runs in back-to-back at bats to win 10-6. Jamestown College knocked off the Indians 16-1 in the nightcap, as well as defeating Bluefield's Rams 5-1 in the early game.
Smith's homeruns plated Billy Alm twice (reaching by virtue of single and hit by pitch) and Stuart Kay, who reached on a single. Dean Walker (Afton, Tenn.) and Travis Moore (Blythewood, S.C.) had safeties in the fifth, then came home off consecutive balks by Bluefield's Chad Morris (Beckley, W.Va.).
Newberry moved to 9-9 on the year, with Patrick Egleston (Columbia, S.C.) getting the win in two innings of work. Morris took the loss for Bluefield, who falls to 5-13 on the season.
Jamestown College scored early and often against the Indians, pouring in six runs in the second inning and scoring 14 before NC got its first run. Kyle Larson (Helena, Mont.) starred offensively for the Jimmies, going three-for-four with a triple and a pair of runs batted in. Kyle Anderson (Bremerton, Wash.) and Sam Joseph (Kent, Wash.) turned in two-run homers in the sixth and seventh frames respectively to pad the lead even further. JC only outhit Newberry 13 to six, but cashed in on the majority of them, notching 15 RBI to Newberry's one.
Newberry resumes conference play this weekend with a three-game weekend series at Tusculum College.
