No. 2 CACC ends home season todayPublished 1:07pm Thursday, May 3, 2012
No. 2 ranked Central Alabama Community College baseball got a 6-2 win Tuesday afternoon against conference rival Marion Military Institute.
CACC (38-10) scored runs in the first and third innings and took a 2-2 tie into the bottom of the seventh inning before they tacked on four runs to take the lead to 6-2 for the final score.
Central Alabama threw three pitchers in the contest, looking to Tanner Hicks for some innings on the mound.
The ace went two innings, allowing only four hits and three strikeouts.
Brewer Carter went three innings on the mound for CACC, giving up five hits and striking out one, while Jonathon Black threw three innings and allowed only three hits.
The Trojans got one hit apiece from Garrett Pitts, Chase Handley, Stephen Eldridge, Levi Wilson, Bo Edwards and Darius Reese.
Pitts and Handley also had two RBIs to lead CACC, while Wilson had one RBI.
The victory puts CACC within two wins of 40 victories in the 2012 season, along with a 24-6 conference record.
With that in mind, Central Alabama will host in-state rival Shelton State today in their last home game of the 2012 season, before a weekend series at Wallace State and preparing for the conference tournament.
The Bucaneers will come into Alex City with not too shabby of a record themselves, sitting at 31-21 and winning three out of their last four games.
The Bucaneers and Trojans are set for a 5 p.m. first pitch today on the campus of Central Alabama Community College.
