Indians sweep second doubleheader with Shepherd College
Sunday, February 27, 2005

NEWBERRY, S.C. � The Newberry Indians took care of business Sunday afternoon against visiting Shepherd College, sweeping a doubleheader by scores of 4-3 and 13-5 in Division II baseball action.  Newberry improves on the season to 4-7, while the losses drop Shepherd to 1-3.

With the wins, Newberry was able to take the weekend series from the Rams, 3-1.

In the first game, Indian starter Pete Stuppiello (Gilbert, S.C.) got touched up for three runs in the first inning, but settled down to pitch a complete game, Newberry�s first of the season.

Down 3-0, Newberry got a run back in the bottom of the first after freshman T.J. McCord (Manning, S.C.) blasted a single up the middle to score leadoff man Jamall Kinard (Newberry, S.C.) from second.  The Indians tied the ballgame in the bottom of the third, courtesy of senior first baseman Dean Walker (Afton, Tenn.), who knocked home Anthony Dillenger (Gaffney, S.C.) and Kinard.

The score remained tied until the sixth inning, until Newberry got something going when Clark Mullins (No. Augusta, S.C.) led off the inning with a base hit to right center.  After a sacrifice bunt from Ryan Easterby, (Charleston, S.C.) and a fielding error by Shepherd second baseman Nicky Brown (Hedgesville, W. Va.), Mullins found himself at third with only one out.  It only took a groundout to first base by Nick Martin (Morehead City, N.C.) to score Clark and give the Indians the win.

Stuppiello (1-1), who only allowed three hits after the first inning, struck out seven and only walked one.  Shepherd�s Scott McCormick (Stephens City, Va.) picked up the loss in his first decision of the season.

In the second game, McCord�s two home runs off of Shepherd starting pitcher Steve Kozak (Harpers Ferry, W. Va.) powered Newberry to a 13-5 pummeling of the Rams.  The 13 runs scored by the Indians were the most of the 2005 season thus far.

McCord, who made his first appearance of the season batting in the three-hole, went 2-for-3 with two HR�s and five RBI in the game.

Newberry starter Joel Crisp (Summerville, S.C.) went six innings, surrendering eight hits and striking out four.  Crisp (1-1) evened his record with the win, while Shepherd�s Kozak (0-1) was credited with the loss.

Newberry hopes to continue its winning ways this coming Tuesday, March 1st, when Limestone College invades Kirkland Field.  First pitch is slated for 2:30 p.m.
