3/31/2013 9:57:18 PM
Noah Holmes’ walk-off double, which scored shortstop Will Callaway propelled Appalachian State University baseball over Wofford in the rubber-game, 7-6, Sunday afternoon at Smith Stadium.
Holmes, who finished the game 2-for-4, found the gap in left center and scored Callaway from first, who reached on a Wofford error to lead off the inning, giving the Mountaineers the series win.
Appalachian’s (14-9, 6-5 SoCon) pitching was started by Jeffrey Springs, who tossed four innings, giving up just two hits and three earned runs. Springs gave way to Taylor Thurber in the fifth, as Thurber recorded 3.1 innings, with three runs on four hits. Josh Wilson earned the victory, going 1.2 innings and striking out one.
The Mountaineers outhit Wofford (13-16, 4-8 SoCon) 10-7 for the day, highlighted by William Head’s three-hit performance. Head also tallied two runs which tied for the team-high with second baseman Hector Crespo, who added his second home run of the season in the bottom of the fourth to give App State a 5-3 lead.
Dillon Dobson and Jaylin Davis joined Holmes with doubles on the afternoon, as Dobson drove in two runs with his double in the third inning.
In the fifth inning, Gabe Dimock, who replaced Josh Zumbrook after suffering an ankle injury trying to beat out a groundball in the fourth inning, recorded his first collegiate hit and scored Davis after his leadoff double. Dimock finished the game 1-for-2 and threw out a runner in the sixth.
The Terriers’ lineup was highlighted by Josh Hyman, the lone Wofford hitter with a multi-hit game, as he finished 2-for-3 with two runs scored and two RBI. Eric Eck picked up his second loss of the season, giving up just two hits in an inning of work.
Appalachian returns to the field on Tuesday, April 2, as it travels to Eastern Kentucky for a non-conference showdown. First pitch from EKU is set for 3 p.m.
NOTES: Appalachian records its first walk-off win of the season … Head has now reached base safely in eight-straight games … The Mountaineers recorded back-to-back double-digit hits for this first time since recording double-digit hits for seven-straight games from March 3-16 … Crespo’s homerun in the fourth inning was the first home run of the series (23 for the season) … without recording a stolen base in the series opener, the Apps combined for seven stolen bases in the final two games (four on Saturday, three on Sunday) … Crespo recorded his 95th stolen base and is within one stolen base of ninth-place in the all-time stolen base list for the Southern Conference (Brett Gardner, College of Charleston).
