Maryville Tops Petrels in Tennessee
The Oglethorpe University baseball team fell to Maryville College in Tennessee on Sunday evening, 10-1. The Scots plated three runs in the first two innings and held the Petrels off the scoreboard until the top of the ninth to cruise to the victory.
Maryville ace R. Brown pitched seven and a third strong innings to raise his record to 4-0 on the season. He managed to flummox the Petrels throughout the contest and retired 23 of the 26 batters he faced.
Oglethorpe plated their only run courtesy of a Joe Parillo sacrifice fly in the ninth that scored senior Matt Anderson. The Petrels only managed six hits on the afternoon and no player recorded a multi-hit game.
The win by the Scots allowed them to claim the season series over the Diamond Petrels by claiming two of the three contests.
At 9-3 on the season, Oglethorpe is back in action this Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. when they face Atlanta Christian on Anderson Field.
