Baseball Wins 1, Drops 2 at “Baseball at the Beach”
CONWAY, S.C. — Miami (Ohio) scored 10 runs in the first three innings Sunday and handed Davidson an 11-3 loss in the Wildcats’ third and final Baseball at the Beach game.
After a 1-2 showing at Coastal Carolina’s four-team event, the Wildcats are now 5-5 on the season.
Freshman Ryan Wilson had two of Davidson’s five hits, and helped jumpstart a three-run sixth inning with a lead-off single through the left side. Ruben Fontes followed with an infield single, and Trevor Candelaria’s RBI-double to left drove in Wilson. Parker Nolan’s sacrifice fly to center scored Fontes, and Candelaria came in on a passed ball.
Alex Fenton got the start and allowed four earned runs in two innings of work in the loss. Will Schomberg was effective in 4.2 innings of relief, and Jacob Walker pitched a hitless 1.1 innings to finish it.
Davidson will visit The Citadel for three games, beginning Friday, March 12.
