WEST POINT, Ga. – Point University (28-16) defeated Thomas University (22-30), 7-4, in Tuesday, April 18 non-conference baseball action at Skyhawk Field in West Point, Ga.  Catcher Juan Reyes (JR/Santo Domingo, D.R.) hit two home runs in the contest, a solo shot in the bottom of the third to increase Point's lead to 2-0, and a three-run blast in the bottom of the sixth with two outs to put the Skyhawks ahead by four runs, 7-3.

 

The Skyhawks plated one run in the second, two in the third, one in the fifth, and three in the sixth inning enroute to defeating Thomas University for the second time this season.  Point defeated Thomas 9-7, March 7.

 

Starting pitcher Sahir Fersobe (JR/Santo Domingo, D.R.) went three innings for the Skyhawks and allowed one hit, no runs, one walk, and struck out four batters.  Four Point relievers combined to allow five hits, four runs, two walks, and struck out five in six innings of work.  Relief pitcher Will Ziebol (JR/Phenix City, AL) remained unbeaten (4-0), and right-hander Jesse Ford (JR/Phenix City, AL) pitched the final two innings of the game and earned his second save of the season.

 

Reyes finished the game with two hits, four RBI and scored two runs, and first baseman Christian Cabral (SR/Santo Domingo, D.R.) crushed his third home run of the season and finished with three hits, two runs scored and one RBI.  Rightfielder Anthony Padron (SR/Columbus, GA) contributed two hits and scored one run, and shortstop Nathan Greene (JR/Rex, GA), leftfielder Devario Allen (JR/Saginaw, MI), and third baseman Gehrig Vargas (SO/Chino, CA) each added one hit.

 

NEXT GAMES:  Coached by John Tyler, Point University; currently in first place in the conference, travels to Athens, Tenn. April 21-22, to play second-place Tennessee Wesleyan; ranked number six nationally, in an Appalachian Athletic Conference three-game series.  If Point wins at least two of the three games, it maintains solo possession of first place in the conference, two games ahead of the Bulldogs, but if Tennessee Wesleyan wins two of the three games, the Bulldogs and Skyhawks will be tied for the AAC lead.  Game one on Friday, April 21, begins at 3 p.m., and games two and three will be played as a doubleheader on Saturday, April 22, starting at 1 p.m.
