The University of North Carolina at Pembroke commit's description of his outing nearly didn't do justice to his masterful outing against the Bulldogs.

Zach Morgan picked up the win after allowing four hits and four runs (three earned) in three innings of work.

"It'll be a little tougher than past year, but we again have another deep team where I have guys to go to if somebody's not getting the job done", Isbell said, noting that seven of his seniors graduated last season and players have filled in every one of those positions with success so far this season.

"There is not a better guy in the country we would rather have on the mound with the game on the line", Torres said. "We gave them some runs, but we battled back ..."

Floyd got out to a quick start by striking out the side in the first inning.

Brooks walked Rice and hit Bennett with the bases loaded in the second, scoring two more Thomasville runs. But Marian, who was held scoreless for the first five innings, ripped off five runs on five hits in the bottom of the sixth. After an out, Crump supplied an RBI single to right. A play at the plate followed, but Boyer scored from third, allowing Johnson and Peshek to each move up a base.

Halon Oxendine capped off the rally with a two-RBI single.

Zane Lilljedahl took over on the mound for the Rebels in the fifth inning, effectively ending the night for Martinez. Matt Stamatis had an RBI single and Price drove in another run with a sacrifice fly. Hunt later scored on a passed ball to take the lead, and Pine Valley added another run for a five run inning.

The Knights made up one run when Drew Hudson tripled to the right field wall then came home on a balk. Hinton said ConVal's offense was hardly the problem, as it registered six hits and earned four walks, but left nine runners on base. But, Perron came back strong to strike out the side and the Whalers managed only one hit the rest of the way - a one-out single by center fielder Isaiah Robertson in the seventh.

"The senior group is kind of in a tough place", the coach said. He was effective and that's the mark of a good pitcher. I thought we swung it aggressively.

Hunt, Oxendine and Richardson each finished with a pair of RBIs for the Golden Tornadoes, who are now 2-1 against the Bulldogs this season.

"Ty has been playing well and had some huge hits for us this past week".
