Wildcat Baseball Tops Radford For Midweek Victory
DAVIDSON — The Davidson Wildcats scored five runs in the second inning Tuesday night and earned a 6-4 win over Radford at Wilson Field.
It’s the Wildcats’ third straight win as Radford fell to 1-3.
Michael Carico continued swinging a hot bat, clearing the bases with a second-inning double to put the Wildcats up 3-1. He then scored on a wild pitch, before Hosmer plated another run to make it 5-1 through two.
The Highlanders made it interesting in the ninth inning, loading the bases with one out. But Gabe Levy entered the game and struck out Ty Dooley and David Bryant to end it, earning his first save of the year.
Nick Shedleski started for Davidson and threw three innings, allowing two earned runs and five hits, while striking out one. Will Schomberg threw the next five frames, allowing four hits and two earned runs and striking out six in the win. Jacob Peaden came on in the ninth.
Hosmer also drove in a run in the fourth, and Trevor Candelaria added two hits, including a double immediately after Carico’s three-RBI double in the second.
Bryant led Radford with four hits.
The Wildcats will host Bryant in a three-game series, beginning Friday at 6 p.m.
