Crawdads Come From Behind for Win Again

Written by

For the second straight game the Hickory Crawdads utilized a late rally for a come-from-behind win, as the 'Dads scored three runs in the 8th to rally for a 4-3 victory over the Delmarva Shorebirds Saturday night at Arthur W. Purdue Stadium.

One night after the Crawdads came away with a 4-1 win over the Shorebirds thanks to a 3-run 9th inning, the 'Dads overcame a 3-1 deficit with a three run outburst in the 8th to lead to their 4-3 victory. The win assures Hickory of at least a split in their final series of the year while also moving the Crawdads overall record this season to 79-58, tied for the most wins in the 'Dads six years as a Texas Rangers affiliate.

The Crawdads decisive 8th inning rally began with some help from Delmarva reliever Luc Rennie, who walked both Marcus Greene and Luis Marte on nine total pitches to put the tying runs on base for the 'Dads with no outs. Nick Urbanus followed for Hickory and laid down a sacrifice bunt off of new Shorebirds pitcher Garrett Cortright to try to move the runners over. Instead of taking the out at first 'Birds catcher Tanner Murphy threw to third in an attempt to get the lead runner, but his throw sailed into Delmarva's bullpen down the left field line and allowed Greene to come home to draw the score to 3-2. Evan Van Hoosier followed with a game-tying RBI single to left before Ronald Guzman gave the Crawdads the lead with a RBI sacrifice fly to make the score 4-3.

Delmarva attempted a comeback of their own with a pair of two-out singles off of Crawdads reliever Anyelo Leclerc in the bottom of the 9th, but Leclerc settled down and got pinch hitter Creede Simpson to line out to second to end the game with the 'Dads 4-3 win.

Second baseman Travis Demeritte led the Hickory offense with a 2-4 game including a double and a run scored, while Jairo Beras also finished the night 2-4 with a double. Marte didn't record a hit in the win, but finished with a RBI, walk, and a run scored.

'Dads reliever Ryne Slack (9-2) earned the win after tossing three scoreless innings on two hits, no walks, and five strikeouts. Cortright (1-3) was the hard-luck loser for the 'Birds with one run allowed on two hits, wile Leclerc (4) picked up the save after closing out the game.

The Crawdads (37-30) will try to secure a series win in game three of their four-game set against the Shorebirds (27-41) Sunday night at 5:05 pm.

Michigan broke open a 14-0 ballgame with three touchdowns in the final four minutes of the first half and went on to avenge its 2007 loss to Appalachian State University football with a 52-14 win over the Mountaineers on Saturday afternoon at Michigan Stadium.

Appalachian State (0-1) remained within striking distance for most of the first half but Michigan’s three touchdowns over a 3:11 span in the waning minutes before halftime squelched any hopes of the Mountaineers replicating their historic victory over the No. 5-ranked Wolverines seven season openers ago.

Michigan’s three-touchdown spurt was sparked by stopping true freshman Jaylan Barbour (Monroe, N.C./Monroe) just short of a first down on third-and-seven from the Appalachian State 30 yard line more than halfway through the second quarter. On fourth-and-inches from the 37, App State was forced to punt after failing to get a play off and calling timeout.

On the first play after the punt, Michigan’s Derrick Green rushed 59 yards to the Appalachian State 23 and two plays later, Devin Funchess caught his third touchdown pass of the first half from Devin Gardner and U-M stretched the lead to 21-0.

The Mountaineers were forced to punt again on their ensuing possession and Michigan needed just two plays — 61 and 12 yard runs by De’Veon Smith — to make it 28-0 with 1:26 to go in the half.

Just 38 seconds later, U-M’s Mike McCray got a hand on a punt by Bentlee Critcher (South Daytona, Fla./Warner Christian Academy) and Ben Gideon returned the block 32 yards for a touchdown that gave the Wolverines a 35-0 halftime lead.

After being limited to just 74 yards and no points in the first half, Appalachian State put together a pair of long touchdown drives after the break.

Midway through the third quarter, starting quarterback Kameron Bryant (Cary, N.C./Panther Creek) engineered an 11-play, 75-yard drive that was capped by an acrobatic eight-yard touchdown catch by Simms McElfresh (Charlotte, N.C./Charlotte Christian) in the back of the end zone that got the Mountaineers on the board.

In the final period, redshirt freshman Taylor Lamb (Calhoun, Ga./Calhoun) led an impressive 19-play, 96-yard drive that culminated with a one-yard touchdown run by Marcus Cox (Dacula, Ga./Dacula).

However, the story of the game offensively for Appalachian State was redshirt freshman running back Terrence Upshaw (Duluth, Ga./Northview), who rushed for 109 yards on 18 carries (6.1 avg.) in his collegiate debut. Cox, who did not start after missing much of the last two weeks of practice due to a lower-body injury, picked up 47 yards on 11 rushes (4.3 avg.).

McElfresh led the Mountaineers with five receptions while Barbour tallied a team-high 40 receiving yards.

Michigan was paced by Funchess, who had game highs with seven receptions and 95 receiving yards — including touchdown catches of nine, 34 and eight yards. In the process, he became the first Wolverine to ever haul in three touchdown receptions in a season opener.

Green (170) and Smith (115) both rushed for 100 yards for Michigan while Gardner completed 13-of-14 passes for 173 yards.

In all, the Wolverines doubled the Mountaineers up in terms of total yardage (560-280).

Appalachian State returns to action next Saturday when it opens the home portion of its first NCAA Division I FBS campaign versus Campbell. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. at Kidd Brewer Stadium.

NOTES: Appalachian State safety Doug Middleton (Winston-Salem, N.C./Parkland) led all tacklers with eight ... App State Appalachian State was 0-for-9 on third downs before McElfresh’s touchdown catch on third-and-goal midway through the third quarter ... the Mountaineers finished 5-of-17 on third downs while Michigan was 5-of-8 ... Appalachian fell to 3-9 in its last 12 season openers (all 12 have been played on the road) ... the Sun Belt Conference fell to 2-22 all-time versus Big Ten opponents ... the game was Michigan’s first ever against a Sun Belt member.

Crawdads Use 9th Inning Rally to Defeat Delmarva

Written by

The Hickory Crawdads broke up a 1-1 tie with a 3-run rally in the 9th inning Friday night, as the 'Dads utilized two hits, two walks, and an error to come away with a 4-1 win over the Delmarva Shorebirds at Arthur W. Purdue Stadium.

The winning rally began modestly, with a leadoff walk by Marcus Greene followed by a sacrifice bunt from Luis Marte and a groundout by Nick Urbanus to move Greene to 3rd with two outs. Then with Evan Van Hoosier at bat, the Crawdads broke up the tie and took the lead on a passed ball by Shorebirds All-Star catcher Chance Sisco that allowed Greene to score from third for a 2-1 'Dads advantage. The rally would build from there, with Van Hoosier drawing a walk and Ronald Guzman singling to right prior to a RBI double from Zach Cone and a throwing error by 'Birds shortstop Jared Breen to bring in two more runs for the 4-1 lead the Crawdads would win by.

Prior to the 9th the 'Dads and 'Birds struggled for runs against starting pitchers David Ledbetter and Bennett Parry. The two hurlers navigated through four scoreless frames to start the game before Hickory scored in the top of the 5th on a double from Urbanus and a RBI single by Van Hoosier for a 1-0 lead. Delmarva promptly responded in the bottom of the inning when Tanner Rust lined his first home run of the year to right, with the solo shot tying the game at 1-1.

The score remained tied until the 9th, with the two pitching staffs holding strong prior to the 'Dads three-run rally. Ledbetter finished the night with only one run allowed on five hits, no walks, and five strikeouts over a season-high seven innings pitched for the Crawdads while earning a no-decision. Parry also exited the game with a no-decision with one run given up on five hits, two walks, and six strikeouts during his five frames on the mound.

Hickory reliever Patrick Kaminska (4-1) earned the win with a perfect inning of work in the 8th, while teammate Jose Valdespina picked up his ninth save with a scoreless 9th. Delmarva bullpen arm Donnie Hart (1-3) took the loss after giving up three runs, two earned, on three hits and three walks over two innings pitched.

Cone ended the game going 2-4 with a RBI double and a walk, while Guzman went 2-5 with a double and a run scored and Urbanus finished 1-5 with a double and a run scored.

The Crawdads (37-30) will take on the Shorebirds (27-40) again on Saturday in game two of their four-game series, with first pitch scheduled for 7:05 pm.

Written by

Appalachian State University men’s soccer opened its season on Friday night against Albany in the James Madison Invitational. App State drew Albany, 0-0 in two overtimes.

The Mountaineers (0-0-1) finished last season with a program record seven ties, before drawing Albany on Friday evening.

App State created four corner kick opportunities to Albany’s two, but were outshot by the Great Danes 18-13.

“We struggled in the first half a bit on the defensive side of the ball, but we continued to work hard and keep their scoring opportunities to a minimum,” said head coach Matt Nelson. “I’m proud of the effort they put in and now we can focus on our next opponent.”

That next opponent for the Mountaineers will be Vermont on Sunday to round out the James Madison Invitational. Kick off is set for 12 p.m.

Appalachian State University volleyball started the 2014 campaign with a victory, sweeping Cleveland State in three sets with scores of 25-22, 25-12 and 29-27.

The first set started close as Appalachian struggled to maintain a lead, but a kill from Emily Corrigan set the tone for the rest of the game as the Mountaineers pulled ahead 5-4. The Apps would keep the lead for the rest of the set, letting the Vikings come within three points on several occasions.

With the score at 23-19, Corrigan took control, slamming down two kills to help App State take the set 25-22.

Appalachian immediately took a 2-0 lead in the second set and would not give up the lead for the rest of the game as Cleveland State trailed by as much as 11 points. The Mountaineers held the commanding lead, defeating the Vikings in the second with a score of 25-12.

The Vikings came back for revenge in the third set, scoring the first two points of the game. The Mountaineers were able to tie the score at three, but from there the lead would flip back-and-forth for the rest of the set.

The third game featured 12 tied scores as the teams battled to reach 25 points. With Appalachian leading 19-15 it looked like they had control of the set, but the Vikings would not go down easy, tying the score at 20.

The set continued with six more tied scores before Appalachian finally pulled ahead for good, winning the set 29-27 and taking the match 3-0.

Corrigan led the team on offense, tallying 15 kills on the night and .433 hitting percentage. She added eight digs, for the second-most on the team. Jess Keller recorded 11 kills in the win, while added Lauren Gray eight with .312 hitting percentage.

Paige Brown assists 39 kills, while Meghan Mahoney led the team on defense with 15 digs.

Grace Kauth led the Vikings with 10 kills and Ally Beck recorded a team-high nine digs.

Appalachian hit .312 on the night, while Cleveland State hit just .118 percent. The teams each tallied six blocks in the match.

The Mountaineers return to action at 12:30 p.m. tomorrow to take on Tennessee Tech, before playing Tennesse at 7 p.m.

A goal by freshman Savanna Sheridan in the waning minutes of Friday’s contest against Georgetown propelled the Appalachian State field hockey team to a 5-4 victory in its first match at the Brandon and Erica M Adcock Field at Appalachian Field Hockey Stadium.

The Mountaineers trailed the Hoyas 4-3 with less than three minutes left until junior Hanna French delivered a pass to freshman Taylor Cimbalist on the left side of the goal. Cimbalist fielded the pass and delivered a shot to the left corner of net to tie the game at four.

The Mountaineers did not play for overtime after that goal. A misguided pass from a Georgetown player was stolen by senior Laura Malinoski right on the edge but inside the circle and she fired a shot that was tipped by freshman Micaela Diedericks and scored by Sheridan to seal the victory for the Mountaineers.

It only took Appalachian nine minutes to score its first goal. Jordyn Warren found herself alone after a fast break and scored to put the Apps up 1-0. The Hoyas rebounded with two goals nearly eight minutes apart until senior Dana Wetmore found a diving Diedericks to put Appalachian back on the board. Georgetown would score two more goals before Cimbalist and Sheridan’s magic.

Behind the net for Appalachian was sophomore Cristina Ceppi. Ceppi got the win for the Mountaineers playing all 70 minutes and moved to 1-0 on the season. Rosalie Nolen recorded the loss for the Hoyas.

Appalachian will continue action at home as Ball State will visit Boone on Labor Day. Match time is set for 11 a.m.
