Wolves sweep series, walk-off vs. Eagles


Wolves sweep series, walk-off vs. Eagles
Saturday, March 18, 2017 | by Tanner Swift, Athletic Communications Assistant

NEWBERRY - Derek Olenchuk earned the easiest RBI in baseball, drawing a walk with the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh inning in a 2-1 win to seal Newberry's (16-12, 5-4 SAC) series sweep of Carson-Newman (10-16, 2-7 SAC) on Saturday afternoon.

 

With the score tied heading into the bottom of the frame, the Wolves benefited from a muffed catch by the Eagles shortstop on an attempt at turning a double play. After runners moved to second and third on a fielders choice, Carson-Newman intentionally walked Danton Hyman, bringing up Olenchuk with the chance for the sweep. The junior watched a 3-2 fastball sail high, scoring Passerello, and was mobbed by his teammates after touching first base just moments later. 

 

Olenchuk had three base on balls in game two of the doubleheader. Passerello scored both runs in the 2-1 final.

 

Hunter Hill earned his third win of the season putching an effective one and one-third inning out of the bullpen allowing no hits and recording two strikeouts. Robert Kosch led the team in hits, going 2 for 4 from the plate

 

In game one, Newberry used a three-run eighth inning to break a 5-5 tie. Charlie Fessler shut the door in the top of the ninth for his fourth save of the season.

 

Kosch, Olenchuck and Jeff Sneed all drove in two runs apeice for the Wolves in the 8-5 win. The eigth inning provided an RBI double from Ben Herring in his second at-bat of the game, followed by a 2-run single from the senior Kosch. 

 

Tristan Smaltz earned his first win of the 2017 campaign with a stealler three and one-third out of the bullpen. Smaltz struck out two and allowed just one hit. 

 

The Wolves will return to the field on Tuesday, March 21 when they travel to Columbia to take on Benedict. First pitch is scheduled for 3:00 p.m.
