Long balls help CU gain DH split with Missouri Baptist
Feb 23, 2007 12:00 am
Missouri Baptist hit three home runs Tuesday as the visitors hammered host Cumberland 10-2 in the first game of a double header at Woody Hunt Stadium.
The Bulldogs used the same tactic in the nightcap to win 10-3.
Brandan Patek, Jack Kopacz and Nathan Sisneros went deep for Baptist in the first game.
But it was a four-run fifth inning which chased CU starter Aaron Tant, who gave up only two hits but five runs [three earned]. Matt West worked the final 2 2/3 frames.
Cumberland collected just four hits in the opener, but came alive with nine in the nightcap.
The Bulldogs overcame a 2-1 deficit with six runs in the bottom of the second inning to hand Anthony Fomasi his first win at Cumberland. The left hander pitched six innings, allowing three hits, before sophomore Matt Burton of Wilson Central worked the seventh.
Clint Alexander drove in four runs and Eric Mull three as they and Austin Morgan homered for the Bulldogs. Luis Martinez hit a two-run single and Mull a three-run homer in the big third inning as Cumberland climbed to 4-3 for the season.
Francisco Vega and Angal Samual homered for Missouri Baptist, which was playing its season openers.
The teams are scheduled to play at 2 p.m. today at Hunt Stadium.
