Baseball Tops UNCG, Earns Series Win
HIGH POINT — Davidson secured its fifth three-game series win of the season Sunday afternoon, downing UNC Greensboro 7-3 at Truist Point, home of the High Point Rockers, an independent pro team.
The Wildcats are now 19-4, having won two straight against UNCG and 11 of their previous 12.
“We pitched well each game this weekend,” said coach Rucker Taylor. “Guys attacked the zone and executed. We didn’t play great defense, and the pitching bailed us out at times. Offensively, there are some things we can continue to improve on as a group, but it’s been nice individuals have had success when they are in the lineup.”
Sunday afternoon, Michael Carico and Jacob Friend homered, with Carico coming within a double of the cycle, while left-hander Ryan Feczko improved to 5-0 with another efficient outing on the mound. Feczko threw 5.1 innings, allowing five hits and one earned run, while striking out six.
Carico drove in Friend for the game’s first run on a third-inning triple, then hit his team-leading seventh home run of the year in the seventh.
Friend’s two-run shot to right came in the eighth and made it 7-1.
The Wildcats scored three runs in the sixth, thanks to Joe Haney’s two-RBI double, which broke a 1-1 tie, and a bases-loaded walk by Friend.
Gabe Levy took the mound with two on and two outs in the eighth, with the tying run on deck, and recorded the final four outs (three by strikeout) to earn his sixth save.
