KINGSPORT, Tenn. – Bryan College (37-17) defeated Point University (33-21), 9-2, in Friday, May 5 Appalachian Athletic Conference postseason baseball action at Hunter Wright Stadium in Kingsport, Tenn.  Point is now eliminated from the Appalachian Athletic Conference Baseball Championship with the loss. 

   

Bryan got off to an early lead, scoring one run in the top of the first inning on an RBI single from centerfielder Trevor Behrent with one out. 

 

Point responded by plating two runs in the bottom of the second inning, its first run coming on a solo shot by first baseman Christian Cabral (SR/Santo Domingo, D.R.); his sixth of the year, and the Skyhawks took the lead when rightfielder Anthony Padron (SR/Columbus, GA) came home to score on a throwing error committed by the Lions.

 

The Skyhawk's bats went dead after the second inning and would score no more runs during the remainder of the contest.  Bryan would go on to regain the lead using a two-run fifth and would add four runs in the sixth and two in the seventh on its way to eliminating the Skyhawks with a victory, 9-2.

 

Point starting pitcher Ty Plumley (SR/Locust Grove, GA) (5-4) struck out a season-high eight strikeouts, but suffered the loss, allowing eight hits, seven runs; four earned, and walked three in six innings on the mound.  Right-hander Jesse Ford (JR/Phenix City, AL) and right-hander Sahir Fersobe (JR/Santo Domingo, D.R.) pitched the final three innings combined to allow three hits, two runs, one walk, and two strikeouts.

 

Bryan starter Travis Moore improved his record to 3-1 and allowed five hits, two runs; one earned, three walks, and struck out three batters in five innings pitched.  Two Lion relievers combined to finish the remaining four innings and allowed just one hit, three walks, and four strikeouts.

 

Point catcher Juan Reyes (JR/Santo Domingo, D.R.) was one of only six Skyhawks to record a hit as he extended his hitting streak to eight games with a single in the bottom of the ninth.  Cabral smashed his sixth home run of the season and finished the day 1-for-4 with a walk, and Padron went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored.
