Strong pitching propels CU sweep
Feb 23, 2007 12:00 am
Enjoying the best baseball weather of the young season, Cumberland rode the strong pitching performances of Matt Madigan, Myles Anderson and Adam Tomlinson to a 3-2 and 8-2 double-header sweep of visiting Missouri Baptist on Wednesday at Woody Hunt Stadium.
Madigan pitched six innings in the opener with two runs allowed on five hits and four walks to win his first decision as a Bulldog.
Cumberland scored all its runs in the bottom of the first inning to overcome a 1-0 deficit and give the junior right-hander just enough runs. Eric Mull hit a two-run single to left and scored the third run on an error on Jason Bush's single to right.
Tomlinson tossed the seventh, striking out two, for his second save. He also pitched a perfect seventh in the second game to finish the win for Anderson, another junior-college transfer who also won his first CU decision. The right-hander allowed three hits and fanned five in six innings.
He benefitted from Cumberland's seven-run fourth inning as the Bulldogs wiped out a 2-1 Baptist lead. Luis Martinez hit a two-run single and Clint Alexander a two-run homer in the big inning.
Alexander had three hits while Courtney Propst and Kyle West each had two.
Cumberland will carry a 6-3 record into a four-game series Saturday and Sunday against Indiana Tech, coached by former CU All-American shortstop Randy Stegall. Double headers will begin at 12:30 p.m. both days at Hunt Stadium.
