Saturday, March 22, 2008

BREVARD, N.C. - The Newberry College baseball team dropped the first game of Saturday's doubleheader at Brevard College, but picked up the win in the second game for the Indians' first series win of the year.

Newberry moves to 11-20 on the season, while Brevard is now 9-18.

Game One: Brevard 6, Newberry 3
Brevard came back from a 3-2 deficit and followed two homeruns from Brice Warner to pick up the Game One win.

Newberry took a lead in the top of the first when David Tunstill (Melbourne, Fla.) hit a two-out RBI single to score Nick Martin (Morehead City, N.C.), who had reached on an error.

The Indians extended the lead to 2-0 in the top of the fourth when a Tunstill grounder drove home Paul Silliman (Winter Springs, Fla.), who had reached third on an error after leading off the frame with a single.

Brevard got on the board in the bottom of the fourth on and Adam Arrowood RBI single, and tied the game in the fifth when Warner led off the inning with a homer to left-center. NC starter Chris Bremer (Port St. Lucie, Fla.) was knocked from the game in the fifth, scattering eight hits through 4.1 innings, striking out two and giving up two earned runs. He earned no decision.

Newberry regained the lead in the top of the seventh, when Tyler Hartman (Deland, Fla.) drove a double to the gap in left-center to plate Casio Grider (Hephzibah, Ga.) and give the Indians the 3-2 advantage.

However, doubles by Justin Frady and Matt Rose set up Arrowood's two-run single and gave the Tornados a 5-3 lead after seven. The lead was extended to 6-3 on Warner's second homer of the game in the eighth.

Stephen Byrd (Vero Beach, Fla.; 1-4) was tagged with the loss after giving up two earned runs in two innings of work.

Game Two: Newberry 10, Brevard 6
The Indians used an eight-run fifth inning to blow open the game and take the series.

Newberry took a 1-0 lead in the top of the second on an RBI single from freshman catcher Zach Upton (Clearwater, Fla.). The lead was extended to 2-0 in the fourth on another run-scoring single from Upton.

Brevard narrowed the deficit to 2-1 in the bottom of the fourth on an RBI double by Matt Rose.

But the Indians took control of the game in the top of the fifth. Tunstill's RBI single started the scoring, which was followed up by a run-scoring bunt single from Thomas Berryhill (Aynor, S.C.). Brandon Mand (Laurinburg, N.C.) followed that with a bases-clearing single.

Phillip Bartz (LaCrescent, Minn.) drove in a run with a single and the scoring was rounded out by a two-run double from Jovan Rohena (Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico).

Brevard put up a two-spot in the bottom of the fifth and a seventh inning rally came up just short. The Tornados loaded the bases with two outs in the bottom of the seventh, down by four, but Berryhill struck out Jesse Swain to pick up the save.

Brandon Petty (Melbourne, Fla; 3-6) fell just short of the complete game win, going 6.2 innings, scaterring 10 hits and allowing six runs - four earned. He struck out eight batters and walked three.

The Indians return home for an extended Spring Break homestand at the Smith Road Complex. Newberry hosts West Virginia State University for 7 p.m. starts on Monday and Thursday before welcoming Wingate to town on Friday for a three-game South Atlantic Conference set.
