JEFFERSON CITY, Tenn. � Newberry�s first conference road trip of the season didn�t go exactly as planned, as the Carson-Newman Eagles completed a three-game sweep of the Indians this past weekend. Newberry falls to 7-16 overall, and 0-6 in South Atlantic Conference play.
GAMES ONE AND TWO (Saturday, March 12th)
Carson-Newman senior outfielder Brian Chapman (Tazewell, Tenn.) treated Eagles fans to quite an offensive display as he drove in 13 runs in two games as the Eagles defeated Newberry 19-1 and 12-2 Saturday afternoon at the Silver Diamond Baseball Complex. Newberry falls to 7-15 overall, and 0-5 in the South Atlantic Conference.
Chapman was four-for-five with eight RBIs, two homeruns and a double in the first game. He followed that up with a two-for-three performance with five runs batted in, another homerun and a double as the Eagles won game two. Chapman is now batting .360 with 10 homers and a team-high 41 RBIs this season.
The Eagles scored six runs in the bottom of the first inning in game one to build a 7-0 lead. T.J. Graves (Cincinnati, Ohio) drove in two runs with a triple and Chapman hit a two-run homer to highlight the six-run inning. After the Eagles scored three more runs in the fourth inning, C-N put together yet another six-run inning in the fifth. Chapman hit a three-run homerun to center field in the fifth inning. The Eagles would tack on three more runs in the sixth. The Indians lone run came in the seventh when Brandon Brown (Starr, S.C.) smacked a solo homerun to left field.
Nathan Gravley (Cartersville, Ga.) drove in four runs for C-N and Derrick Calkin (Maryville, Tenn.) picked up the win to even his record at 3-3 by pitching six innings with two strikeouts. Newberry starting pitcher Pete Stuppiello (Gilbert, S.C.) was tagged with the loss.
The second game of the day was much closer as the score was tied 1-1 going into the third inning. Calkin had led off the bottom of the second inning with a solo dinger and Newberry began the third inning with a shot to left field by Matt Webb (Cheraw, S.C.). Chapman came through once again as he hit a three-run homerun to left field to give the Eagles a 7-2 lead after five innings. Nick Achberger (Anderson, S.C.) brought in two of the Eagles five runs in the sixth inning as the Eagles went on to the 12-2 win. Matt Teague (Belmont, N.C.) improved to 4-0 on the mound as he had five strikeouts in the complete-game victory.
Newberry�s Will Folk (Charleston, S.C.) was credited with the loss.
GAME THREE (Sunday, March 13th)
For the second consecutive weekend, the Carson-Newman Eagles baseball team swept a South Atlantic Conference (SAC) weekend series as the Eagles won the third game of the series, 14-7, Sunday afternoon at the Silver Diamond Baseball Complex.
With the win, the Eagles maintain a tie for first place in the SAC standings with a 6-0 record and 17-10 overall mark.
T.J. Graves (Cincinnati, Ohio) went two-for-four with five RBIs to lead the Eagles. C-N had five stolen bases in the contest and Gavin Scroggins (Jefferson City, Tenn.) picked up his second win of the season as he pitched six innings in relief with five strikeouts.
The Indians quickly jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the top of the first on a grand slam to left field by Brandon Brown (Starr, S.C), the first four of the six runs he batted in. The Eagles trailed 6-2 going into the bottom of the third inning but scored four runs to tie the score at 6-6. Bryce Thomas (Ringgold, Ga.) had a two-run single and Graves� double plated the other two C-N runs.
The Eagles would take an 11-6 lead in the seventh inning by scoring five runs, highlighted by Derrick Calkin�s (Maryville, Tenn) single to right that scored two runs. C-N would add three more runs in the bottom of the eighth inning, two of which came on a single to right field by Graves.
Newberry reliever Ty Rollins (Columbia, S.C.) was credited with the loss.
