by | Mar 8, 2022

The Wildcats had a lot to celebrate during the final game of the 4-game series with Columbia – including this 3-game homer by Trevor Candelaria.


DAVIDSON, N.C. – Davidson baseball split its series with Columbia after earning a 6-4 victory in Sunday’s finale as Columbia’s three-run eighth inning rally wasn’t enough. 

Trevor Candelaria homered and drove in three runs to lead the way, as the Wildcats improved to 9-3.

Candelaria’s solo shot to left in the fourth, his first round-tripper of the season, tied the game at 1-1 and sparked a three-run inning. John Hosmer then drove in two runs with a single to center field before Candelaria extended the Wildcats’ lead to 5-1 in the fifth with a two-RBI double to left.

Columbia pulled within 5-4 in the eighth, but the Wildcats added an insurance run in the bottom of the inning after Parker Nolan hit a ground-rule double and scored on an error.

Lefty Ryan Feczko threw 5.2 innings, allowing one hit and one run and striking out six while improving to 3-0.

Gabe Levy threw the final 1.1 innings, allowing one hit and striking out one, to earn his fifth save in as many chances.

Candelaria and Ryan Wilson finished the day with two hits apiece.
