The Lady Hawks avenged a 9-1 loss to the Crusaders in the same tournament last season and used a stellar pitching performance from their two-time All-American to stay unblemished through three games in 2010. Elisabeth Barber, Bre Johnson and Emily Clements combined to go 10-for-12 with six RBIs in Shorter’s win against Spring Hill College, 9-4, later in the day.
No. 8 Campbellsville too much for Hawks in doubleheader
No. 8 Campbellsville University (Ky.) used a pair of timely home runs in game one and scored nine runs in the first two innings of game two en route to a pair of victories over host Shorter College on Friday afternoon as part of a weekend, three-game series.
The Tigers (2-0), who advanced to the NAIA National Championships last season, took the opener 6-1 before topping the Hawks 15-4 in the final game of the day.
Berry wins 12-1 at home
Scoring 11 runs in the final two innings, the Berry baseball team pounded out a 12-1 win in seven innings over visiting UVa.-Wise at William R. Bowdoin Field on Friday. The Vikings remain unbeaten at home this season and improve to 5-4 overall.
The Vikings’ late rally started with a pair of leadoff walks to start the fifth inning. A bunt single by Isaac Hardee loaded the bases for Cory Pitts. Despite grounding the ball to the shortstop, Pitts was granted a reprieve when the Wise player rushed his throw to get Hardee at second and threw the ball into right field. This allowed Pitts to end up at second and cleared the bases.
