Saturday, April 29, 2000

Johnson City, Tenn. -- East Tennessee State held off a late Wofford rally to sweep a Southern Conference doubleheader 9-7 this afternoon at Duncan Park. ETSU took a 6-3 decision in the opening game. The win improves the Bucs to 17-25, 13-13 in the conference while Wofford falls to 13-34, 4-21.

Trailing 9-2 entering its final at bat, Wofford put together five runs on six hits and two Buc errors to pull within 9-7. ETSU reliever Jackson Simerly induced Danny Slade to ground to second with runners on second and third to end the game.

A six-run ETSU sixth broke open a tight 2-0 game. A grand slam by Buc shortstop Jeremy Terry highlighted the inning. With the home run, Terry now has a 14-game hitting streak.

Matt Baber (8-6) worked 8.2 innings to pick up the win. He allowed seven runs, four earned on 12 hits while striking out six and walking two. Chad Boruff had three hits and two RBI for the Bucs, including a run-scoring double in the fourth inning for ETSU's first run of the game.

A three-run homer by Boruff in the first inning gave ETSU a quick 3-0 lead in the opening game. He later added a run-scoring double in the fifth for this fourth RBI of the contest.

With the Bucs leading 4-2 in the top of the eighth inning, Nathan Copeland broke the game open with a two-run home to give ETSU a 6-2 lead. Copeland, Boruff, Danny Pugh, and Ed Sparks each had two hits for the Bucs while Reid Casey went eight solid innings in improving his record to 5-6.
