Results vs. Anderson (CC Tour) (2008-04-18 19:00:00)

WILSON, N.C.—The No. 7 seed Pfeiffer University upset No. 5 seed Anderson University in an elimination game of the 2008 Conference Carolinas Baseball Tournament on Friday night at historic Fleming Stadium. The Falcons (25-28) next face No. 2 seed Erskine College on Saturday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. in another elimination game. Senior Shawn Coke (West Palm Beach, Fla.) ripped a one-out walk-off triple in the right-center gap in the bottom of the ninth to lead Pfeiffer to the victory and eliminate the Trojans (20-37) from the tournament. Freshman David Braxton (Hillsborough, N.C.) led off the ninth with a single to center. Sophomore Will Davis (New London, N.C.) changed places with Broxton at first base on a fielder’s choice and then rounded the bases and scored the game-winning run on Coke’s triple that reached the outfield wall. Anderson led 3-1 before Pfeiffer rallied back and took a two-run lead with a four-run fifth. Trojans’ senior Clint Neville (McDonough, Ga.) deadlocked the contest at five runs apiece with a two-run homer in the eighth inning. Neville smoked his 11th home run of the season over the left-center fence. Sophomore closer Andrew Oliver (Cornelius, N.C.) picked up his second win of the tournament. Oliver (8-4) held the Trojans scoreless for the final six outs of the game, entering the game after Neville’s homer with no-outs in the eighth. Junior reliever David Richardson (Hanahan, S.C.) was tagged with the loss. Coke finished with two hits while sophomore Zack Poe (Stanley, N.C.) drove in a team-high two runs. Sophomore Trent Still (Williston, S.C.) had two of the Trojans seven hits while Neville supplied three RBI.
