NEWBERRY, S.C. - The Newberry College baseball team had a hard time getting offense going against Francis Marion, as the No. 12 Patriots came away with a 17-1 win at the Smith Road Complex on Wednesday evening.

The Wolves fall to 20-24 on the season and close out the home portion of their schedule this weekend with a three-game South Atlantic Conference series against Anderson University on Friday and Saturday. With one win in that series, Newberry will clinch a berth in the Food Lion SAC Tournament, and the Wolves have a chance to finish as high as fourth in the league standings depending on results around the league.

The Patriots had an excellent offensive night, scoring in eight of nine innings on 21 hits. FMU scored three unearned runs in the first and plated two in the second on a homerun by Brock McCallister to get off to the hot start.

Newberry scored a run in the bottom of the second after Andy Vogel (Marietta, Ga.) led off with a double and scored on a Derek Bley (Upper Arlington, Ohio) single. However, the Wolves only managed one more hit and seven more baserunners in the game, leaving the bases loaded in the fifth.

FMU touched up Newberry starter Chris Phillips (North Augusta, S.C.; 0-3) for 15 hits and 12 runs in five innings. The bullpen allowed five runs in four innings, but only one of those runs was earned.

Patriot starter Joe Wagstaff (4-3) earned the win after going five innings, allowing one run on three hits. The FMU bullpen did not allow a hit in four innings of work.
