Game NOTES

  • Looking to bounce back after a late defeat in yesterday's action, Northwood struck first in the top of the first after Connor Foley doubled and later scored on a Carson-Newman throwing error.
  • Carson-Newman wasted little time in striking back with a run of their own in the home half of the second to even the score at one. However, in the top of the third, Foley once again sparked the offense for Northwood with a leadoff walk and would later score on a two-run double by David Vinsky to push the Timberwolves in front, 3-1.  
  • After the Eagles plated a run in the bottom of the sixth to pull within one, Northwood added a pair in the top of the eighth to pull ahead 6-2. 
  • In the bottom of the ninth, with the Timberwolves on top 6-2, Larry Wood struck out the side to earn the save and chalk a W in the left column for Northwood.  
  • Northwood's Tyler Jandron was phenomenal in his Timberwolves debut. The transfer from Wisconsin Parkside hurled six innings and allowed just two runs to earn the win on the mound.
