Wednesday, April 19, 2000

Johnson City, Tenn. -- East Tennessee State's Jeremy Terry went 4-5 with four runs scored and one RBI to lead the Bucs in a 13-8 win against Radford at ETSU's Cardinal Park.

The Bucs' Josh Warner (1-2) pitched 1.0 inning to pick up his first victory of the season. ETSU's Ed Sparks went 2-2 with two RBIs. Radford was led by Matt DiAngelo and Keith Brunst who both collected two hits.

The Bucs (14-22) opened with a run in the first. Terry led-off the game with a single and later scored on a Sparks single. The Highlanders ended the Bucs rally with a triple play. In the second, Ryan McKinney doubled to right center and later scored on a sacrifice fly by Matt Nunley.

Radford (19-17) cut the lead in half on a Fred Wray home run in the third. Terry crossed the plate for the second time in the home half of the third on a wild pitch by Radford reliever Jamie Davis.

The Bucs loaded the bases in the fifth with nobody out after Terry and Danny Pugh singled and Sparks was hit by a pitch. A Chad Boruff sac fly plated Terry for the Bucs' fourth run.

Radford cut the lead to 4-3 in the sixth on a two-run shot by Mike Potter. The Highlanders struck for two more in the frame to take a 5-4 lead. A Keith Brunst double plated Sean Walsh and Brunst later scored when Terry's relay throw sailed into the Radford dugout.

ETSU regained the lead in its half of the sixth with five manufactured runs on four singles and an RBI triple by Raymond McBride. Radford threatened in the top of the seventh with the bases loaded but ETSU reliever Jackson Simerly quited the flame with a 1-2-3 double play.

The Highlanders loaded the bases again in the eighth with no outs. After another 1-2-3 double play turned by Simerly, Wray struck out to end the threat. ETSU added four insurance runs in the bottom of the eighth on two singles and a double.

Radford closed the scoring in the ninth with a Daryl Douglass home run and a two-run double by Brunst.

The Bucs will return to action this weekend when they travel to Boone, N.C to take on Appalachian State in a three-game Southern Conference series. A 1 p.m. doubleheader is scheduled for April 22 with the third game being played on April 23 at 1 p.m.
