Early runs enough for Clayton, Cumberland
Apr 10, 2007 12:00 am
Cumberland did all its scoring in the first inning Friday and Robert Clayton took care of the rest as CU won the battle of the Bulldogs 4-1 at Woody Hunt Stadium.
Clint Alexander's two-run single through the left side staked Clayton to the early lead. Jeremy Wilson added a sacrifice fly and Austin Morgan RBI single to right.
Clayton surrendered a run in the second inning but held the visitors to six hits and no walks while striking out three to bring his record to 7-1 and Cumberland's to 25-14-1 for the season and 11-4 in the TranSouth Conference.
Cumberland collected 11 hits off Greg Abram [5-4] as Union fell to 21-12, 7-9. Leadoff batter Courtney Propst had three hits while Alexander and Luis Martinez managed two apiece.
The teams will play a double header at noon today at Hunt Stadium.
