Presbyterian salvages series with extra inning win over Newberry
Sunday, April 3, 2005

CLINTON, S.C. � Lance Howard�s (Simpsonville, S.C.) sacrifice fly in the bottom of the tenth inning scored Nick Hoffner (Ellicot City, Md.) to lift Presbyterian College to a 10-9 victory over rival Newberry College in South Atlantic Conference Baseball action Sunday afternoon at the PC Baseball Complex.

Newberry (15-24, 5-10) forced extra innings with a run in the ninth on an error and a passed ball.

The Indians jumped on the board in the top of the first with two runs, but PC (13-25, 6-9) answered with four runs of their own in the bottom of the inning.

After Newberry scored a run on a Matthew Webb (Cheraw, S.C.) homerun in the top of the second, the Blue Hose looked to take control of the game with three runs, two on a homerun by Matt Bodie (Aiken, S.C.) in the bottom of the inning.

PC added two more in the fourth before Newberry rallied to pull within one with four runs on two hits in the top of the sixth.

Bodie led PC at the plate with three hits and four RBIs. Robert Rodebaugh (Marietta, Ga.) and Donald Sheppard (Sylvania, Ga.) also had three hits for the Blue Hose.

Dean Walker (Afton, Tenn.) had three hits to lead Newberry.  Both T.J. McCord (Manning, S.C.) and Brandon Brown (Starr, S.C.) had a pair of RBIs for the Indians.

Chris Cornelison (Roswell, Ga.) picked up his first collegiate win, throwing five innings in relief and allowing one unearned run on three hits. Russell Haltiwanger (Simpsonville, S.C.) took the loss for the Indians.

Newberry is back in action Tuesday as they travel to Florence, S.C. to take on Francis Marion in a doubleheader beginning at 5 p.m.
