NC Wesleyan topped at USA South tourney
BURLINGTON -- The top-seeded North Caroilna Wesleyan Battling Bishop baseball team dropped its first two games at the 2010 USA South Conference baseball tournament, falling to 5th-seeded Ferrum by a 6-2 score last Thursday before losing a 13-7 decision to 4th-seeded Christopher Newport last Friday.

Junior Zach Alexander was 4-for-7 with a double, homerun, two RBIs, and two runs scored over the two-game span, while sophomore Patrick Laffin went 5-for-9 with his second homer of the season.

Against Ferrum, the Bishops could not overcome an early 5-0 deficit en route to the 6-2 defeat. Laffin was 4-for-4 in the game with a solo blast in the sixth, while Alexander drove in NCWC’s final run with an RBI-double in the seventh.

On the mound, junior Andrew Webb (5-2) suffered the loss, allowing six runs on 11 hits in eight innings of work. 

He also struck out four and walked one.

Versus CNU, Wesleyan again fell behind early, trailing the Captains 9-0 after 3 1/2 innings due to five costly fielding miscues that led to eight unearned runs.

The Bishops battled back with a pair of runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings, highlighted by a two-run single by Zach Moore. 

But CNU effectively put the game out of reach with a four-spot in the seventh, although NCWC did manage three runs in the ninth for the 13-7 final.

Junior hurler Max Knowles (3-4) took the loss, giving up nine runs (one earned) on six hits in 3 2/3 innings pitched.

Now 17-19 overall, Wesleyan will wrap up its 2010 season this Saturday with a road doubleheader at Salisbury University.

Game one is scheduled for a noon start.

NCWC SOFTBALL: In USA South Conference Softball Tournament action, North Carolina Wesleyan ended its season with a 9-4 loss to Ferrum College last Saturday morning in picturesque Burlington.

Senior Kate Braun was 3-for-3.
