Camp and Cromer lead Wolves to pair of shutouts in twinbill sweep of Brevard
Saturday, March 8, 2014

NEWBERRY - The Newberry pitching duo of Wesley Camp and Cole Cromer earned a pair of complete game shutouts as the Wolves took both games of Saturday's South Atlantic Conference doubleheader from the Brevard Tornados, 4-0 and 6-0.

With the wins, Newberry is now 14-9 overall and 6-4 in SAC play with Brevard at 8-12 overall and 4-9 in the league. The Wolves will go for the sweep of the series at 1 p.m. Sunday, with the game broadcast on WKDK-AM 1240 over the air and online at www.NewberryWolves.com.

Game One: Newberry 4, Brevard 0
Wesley Camp (Pelion, S.C.) pitched to contact and let his defense do the needed work, allowing three hits with only two strikeouts and no walks in the complete game shutout. His record now stands at 7-0 on the year to lead the nation, and his ERA drops to 0.77.

The first batter of the game reached on an error and was immediately rolled up in a double play. Camp's no-hit bid was broken up in the fourth, but the Brevard batter was thrown out trying to extend the hit into a double. Two singles in the fifth meant Camp was finally forced to face more than the minimum, but the junior stranded runners on the corner to end the inning. With one out in the sixth, a Tornado reached on an error before Camp retired the final 11 batters in order.

The Wolves' offense provided their starter with all of the offense needed in the third inning with the bases loaded on an RBI single from Alex Kirby (Chapin, S.C.) and a two-run double by Albert Baur (Philadelphia, Pa.) to make it 3-0. JoJo Bradley (Spartanburg, S.C.) tacked on an RBI double in the eighth.

Brevard's Kevin Hamilton went the distance on the mound, allowing the four earned runs on five hits and six walks with five strikeouts, falling to 0-3 on the season.

Kirby was the only batter with multiple hits in the game, going 2-for-4.

Game Two: Newberry 6, Brevard 0
In the seven inning game of the doubleheader, it was time for Cole Cromer (North Augusta, S.C.) to shine on the mound as he earned his own complete game shutout.

Cromer encountered slightly more difficulty than Camp, allowing eight hits and a pair of walks with five strikeouts. He pitched well under duress though, stranding 10 Tornados on base, with six of those in scoring position. His job on the mound moved his season record to 3-1.

The Wolves' offense was more productive in the second game, starting with a Ryan Cranmer (Newport, N.C.) two-out RBI single to make it 1-0 after the first inning. With two out in the second inning, Jermale Paige (Walterboro, S.C.) hit a two-run single followed by a run-scoring single from Kirby to make it 4-0.

Eric Barbieri (Marlton, N.J.) led off the third with a double and scored later on Bradley's RBI groundout and then Barbieri capped the scoring in the fourth with a two-out RBI double.

Kirby was fantastic at the plate in the second game for Newberry, going 4-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored, while Barbieri was 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and Cranmer was 2-for-4 with two singles.
