#15 Patriots sweep unusual doubleheader from Newberry 10-0 and 7-5
Tuesday, April 5, 2005

FLORENCE, S.C. � Jason Weaver, Nick Richardson, and Owen Brittle each drove in two runs as 15th-ranked Francis Marion University held off a late Newberry College rally to claim a 7-5 non-conference win on Tuesday night (April 5) and a sweep of an unusual doubleheader.

Senior right-hander Chas Dobes tossed a five-hit shutout, although it took him 43 days to complete the job, as FMU blanked the Indians 10-0 in the opener.  The game was the completion of a contest started on Feb. 22 at Newberry, but suspended when a power failure occurred with the Patriots leading 7-0 in the fifth inning.  Prior to the power outage, Dobes had faced only one batter over the minimum through the first four innings.  He ended the game with eight strikeouts, while walking no one to up his record to 4-2.

In the shutout, Patriot third baseman Brian McFadden was two-for-four with a home run, two runs scored, and two runs batted in.  Leadoff batter Omar Quiles, Weaver, Luke Ogletree, and Michael Ward all collected two hits, while senior Quentin Davis tallied two RBIs.

Neither team scored after the suspended game began until Francis Marion pushed across three runs in the ninth inning.  Newberry junior Joel Crisp, who started the game on Feb. 22, was tagged with the loss and he falls to 1-4.  No Indian batter had more than one hit.

In the regularly scheduled game on Tuesday, FMU jumped to a 7-0 lead after four innings.  Weaver ended the game one-for-three with two RBIs and two runs scored.  Sophomore right fielder Nick Stewart was three-for-four with a run scored.  Francis Marion took advantage of eight walks issued by Newberry pitchers and two hit batters.

FMU freshman Dusty Floyd (4-0) threw five scoreless innings before allowing two runs in the sixth frame.  The Indians scored three runs off the Patriot bullpen in the top of the ninth frame to close to within two runs with the tying run on base.

Newberry leadoff batter Jamall Kinard tallied three hits and one run scored in five at bats, while shortstop Anthony Dillenger was two-for-five with two doubles, two runs scored, and one RBI.  Malcolm McLeod was two-for-four with an RBI-single in the ninth, while Curt Marshall also collected two hits (in five at bats).

Newberry starter Lucas Hummers (0-1) was the losing pitcher.

Newberry returns to its home diamond on Tuesday, April 9th, as the Indians take on tenth-ranked USC Aiken for a 6:30 game at historic Kirkland Field.
