CUTrevor 2019-03-10 12:07:43


Freshman Keyshawn Askew (2-0) will make his first weekend start at 1:00. Tigers looking to sweep the Tar Heels. Monte Lee hadn't beaten UNC until yesterday. They were swept by a top-10 UNC team in Chapel Hill two years ago. The Tigers rallied in the 9th to score 2 runs and win game one 3-2 and then won game two 17-3 on 20 hits last night. Freshman Bryar Hawkins was 4-5 with the only HR of the day, his second of the season, and Sam Hall was 4-6 with 2 doubles.

HALL DOUBLE!!! He had 2 last night, and this is the 3rd time he has gotten on with 2 outs today! Tying RISP with 2 outs for Davidson, who doubled with 2 outs earlier to score Hall. Davidson has 4 HR's this season and could win the game with one here. Hall has great speed, and a single should tie it.

DAVIDSON WALK-OFF HR!!!

TIGERS WIN 5-4 FOR SWEEP!!!

Tigers scored 12 of their 17 runs last night with 2 outs and 4 of 5 today. The preseason All-American Davidson homered last Sunday as well in Columbia. Teo and Davidson each hit their 5th HR today.

Tigers will be climbing the rankings tomorrow! They improve to 12-3 on the season. What a weekend to be a Tiger! I'll have post-game interviews shortly!
