Newberry drops tough 4-1 game to Saint Leo
Sunday, February 12, 2006

SAINT LEO, Fla. � Indians� second baseman Jimmy Bertelson tagged Saint Leo pitcher Peter Martinez with his first earned run of the season as Bertelson sent a bases empty line drive over the left field fence in the fourth inning of a seven inning game, but that was the only run Newberry would score as Martinez held Newberry to two hits and struck out eight Indians in a 4-1 Saint Leo victory Sunday afternoon.

Darrin Young (0-1) pitched five solid innings in the seven inning game for Newberry (1-8-1) while Danny Bertelson pitched one full inning in relief. Martinez (2-0) was credited with the win for Saint Leo (5-2).

Saint Leo took a 1-0 lead in the second inning as Lions catcher Ricky Nolan doubled to left off Young and was eventually driven in by Greg Whitemore.

Saint Leo would take a 2-1 lead before Rhett Taylor hit a two-run homerun in the fifth to give the Lions a 4-1 advantage over Newberry.

The second and only other base hit Newberry would record would occur in the seventh as Tyler Manasa recorded his first hit of the year, a single up the middle. Manasa was thrown out on the next play though as Jimmy Bertelson grounded into a double play.

Newberry next travels to Augusta State on Tuesday, Feb. 14 as the Road Warriors campaign continues.
