Baseball Claims Series Victory Over E&H With Dominant 20-6 Outing

ROME, Ga. — The Berry College baseball team claimed the third and final game of the weekend series with the Emory & Henry College Wasps on Sunday in a 20-6 blowout. 

The win evens Berry's record at 2-2 on the year. Freshman Garrett West claimed his first career victory, tossing 4.0 innings. 

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • The Wasps were able to plate a pair of runs in the top of the first inning off the bat of Ben Sexton and Corbin Hockensmith. 
  • E&H tacked on another run in the second before an offensive explosion by Berry in the home half of the inning that saw nine Vikings cross the plate. 
  • Berry scored four more in the third and fifth innings, leading 17-5 heading into the sixth. 
  • E&H scored once more in the top of the sixth on a Hockensmith ground out, but the lead was too great as Berry scored three more runs to close out the game. 

BERRY STANDOUTS:

  • Dylan Beasley: 3-for-5, 2 R, 2 RBI
  • Spence Johns: 2-for-5, 2 R
  • Casey Whitaker: 4-for-5, 5 R, 3 RBI
  • Quinn Smith: 3-for-4, 3 R, 2 RBI
  • Devin Post: 3-for-5, 4 RBI
