Wolves back on winning track with 5-2 victory at Augusta State

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The Newberry Wolves jumped out to an early lead and followed a solid start from freshman Wesley Camp on the way to a 5-2 win over the Augusta State Jaguars at Jaguar Field on Tuesday afternoon.

Newberry snaps a five-game losing streak and moves to 10-18 overall entering Wednesday's 6 p.m. home game with No. 9 USC Aiken at the Smith Road Complex.

The Wolves loaded the bases in the first as Kevin Rufus (Andrews, S.C.), Robby Scaggs (North Augusta, S.C.) and Andy Vogel (Marietta, Ga.) drew three consecutive walks to move ASU starter Jacob Suggs out of the game. Albert Baur (Philadelphia, Pa.) drove in a run with an RBI groundout and a two-run single up the middle from Josh McElwee (Andrews, S.C.) staked Newberry out to an early 3-0 lead.

That would be all of the offense the Wolves needed, as Camp (Pelion, S.C.; 1-2) allowed only three Jaguars to reach scoring position in the first seven innings of the game.

Newberry extended its lead in the seventh on Vogel's RBI double in the seventh and a Rufus RBI single in the eighth put the Wolves out to a 5-0 advantage. ASU's Curtis Parker hit a two-run homerun in the bottom of the eighth to get Camp out of the game after 7.2 innings allowing two runs on four hits while striking out six.

Jeremy Long (Clover, S.C.) got his first save at Newberry with 1.1 innings of relief with only one Jaguar reaching on a walk.

Rufus was 2-for-4 in the game, while Alex Kirby (Chapin, S.C.) was 2-for-5 with two steals.
