Falcons fall in final game

Aiken, SC – The Pfeiffer Falcons fell to the No. 7 Pacers of USC Aiken on Thursday evening 14-2.  This non-conference non-playoff game is the last of the season for the Falcons who end with an overall record of 26-20-1.  Aiken marked its 16th straight victory with the win over Pfeiffer.  The Pacers are now 35-14 on the season.

The Falcons got on the board in the second inning when Julian Medina (Glen Cove, NY) singled through the left side to get on base, stole second, advanced on a single to get to third and then came home on an error by the Pacer pitcher.  Unfortunately for the Falcons, they trailed 5-1 by the end of the inning.

Pacer Stephen Carmon (Camden, SC) picked up four RBI on a grand slam to right field in the bottom of the third inning. With the bases loaded he connected for a hit to deep right field.  The baseball hit the top of the fence and then bounce over for Carmon’s second home run of the year.  The four-run mark by Carmon in the bottom portion of the third inning gave the Pacers a 9-1 lead after three innings.

Later in the seventh inning the Falcons marked their second run of the day when Eric Shoemaker (Huntersville, NC) scored off of a SAC fly by Josh Strickland (Liberty, NC).
