SAVANNAH – The Brewton-Parker College baseball team couldn’t overcome a slow start against the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) on Valentine’s Day, eventually falling to the Bees, 6-4.
“We really came out flat for the first six innings, but we battled every inning after,” said head coach Hayne Brant. “We (even) had a chance to tie the game in the ninth. I am really happy that we kept battling even though things were not going our way.”
The Barons (6-2, 0-0 SSAC) were led by catcher Gary Stauff, who turned in a 2-for-4 performance and had one RBI. Stauff has been hot in his last few at bats, hitting for .500 (7-for-14).
Josh Sasser went 1-for-3 with an RBI. Other Barons who contributed offensively were Randy Griffin (1-for-2), Ian Wright (1-for-4), Matt Stanley (1-for-3), Baker Romine (1-for-3), and pinch hitter Phil Merrill (1-for-1). Josh Evans (1-for-5) also contributed an RBI.
Starter Brian Stauff (0-2) pitched four innings and gave up five runs (all earned) and six hits while walking three and striking out one. Chance Callaway and Jarret Bristol pitched in relief, giving up a total of four hits and one run. They walked a total of two batters while striking out three.
The Barons and Bees met again this past Tuesday, Feb. 20 in Hinesville. BPC returns home for their conference opener this weekend with a three game series against Auburn University-Montgomery, who is ranked fifth in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) preseason poll. The first game of the series is Feb. 23 at 4 p.m. Saturday will feature a doubleheader with the first game scheduled for 12 p.m.
