NEWBERRY – The Newberry College baseball team moved to 11-7 on the year while Davis & Elkins dropped to 1-4 after the Wolves pounded out 16 hits and scored 13 runs in the 13-1 rout of the Senators.

Wesley Camp (Pelion, S.C.) moves to 4-1 on the year after going six complete innings, surrendering one run on seven hits while striking out five and not allowing a free pass.

Patrick Clarey (Megget, S.C.), Matt Chapman (Summerville, S.C.) and Daniel Nations (Central, S.C.) each tossed hitless and scoreless innings of relief. Clarey and Chapman each recorded one strikeout while Nations picked up a pair.

Eight different Wolves picked up hits but senior Causey Stanland (Anderson, S.C.) led the way at the plate going 2-for-3 with four runs batted in and a run scored on his first career home run, a three-run blast down the left field line.

Ben Herring (Hopkins, S.C.) continued his hot hitting as he was 3-for-4 with a double, two runs batted in and three runs scored. The freshman now has eight hits in his last nine at bats.

Senior Brandan Sheridan (Jacksonville, Fla.) had two hits in three trips to the plate, scoring a pair and driving in as many. Fellow senior Albert Baur (Philadelphia, Pa.) also turned in three hits and added a double, a run driven in and two runs scored. Sophomore JoJo Bradley (Spartanburg, S.C.) added a trio of singles in four at bats.

Newberry was 11-for-23 with runners on base and 7-for-16 with runners in scoring position.

Davis & Elkins tallied three two-out hits in a row to plate a run in the top of the first which turned out to be their sole run of the game. The Senators did not move a runner past second base for the rest of the game.

The Wolves had a loud answer in the home half as they batted around and put seven runs across as three singles and a two-RBI double from Jeff Sneed (Cumming, Ga.) gave Newberry a quick 3-1 advantage. Another single from Herring added a run to the board and a walk brought Stanland to the plate with one out and Newberry holding a 4-1.  The senior worked a 3-2 count before blasting a fastball high in the sky that wrapped around the left field foul pole and into the pond beyond the left field fence for a three-run home run, the first of his career, to give Newberry a 7-1 advantage.

The next three inning went by quickly as neither team scored a run and only one runner advanced past second for either side.

Newberry added a single run in the bottom of the fifth as Herring had a leadoff double and scored on a sacrifice fly from Stanland, pushing the score to 8-1.

The top of the sixth saw Davis & Elkins with their best chance to score since the first, getting back-to-back singles to put men on first and second with only one away. However, Camp induced a 6-4-3 double play to put the threat to rest and end the inning for the Senators.

The Wolves put up four runs in the bottom half of the frame as Bradley singled and Baur followed up with a double to score the left fielder from second. Sheridan walked and Herring recorded another single two batters later to plate Baur and later scored on a wild pitch to put the score at 12-1.

One more run in the bottom of the seventh on sacrifice fly form Sheridan ended the scoring at 13-1 and put the game out of reach for Davis & Elkins as Nations slammed the door in the ninth.

The Wolves and Senators will have their final game of the series on Saturday with a 1 p.m. first pitch at the Smith Road Complex.
