RESULTS VS. USC-AIKEN (2009-04-22 18:30:00)

Aiken, SC -- The Pfeiffer Falcon baseball team fell to the No. 7 Pacers of USC-Aiken on Wednesday evening in a non-conference non-playoff game, 28-10. The Falcons are now 26-19-1 overall.
The Pacers picked up most of their runs in the game in the bottom of the third inning, posting 15 runs on 15 hits. The 15 hits acquired by the Pacers in the frame tied an NCAA Division II record for most hits in a single inning. The 15 hit-inning ties them with Northern Colorado (2003), North Alabama (1997), South Dakota (1996), St. Francis (1996) and Metro State (1999) for most hits in a single inning.
The 15-hit output in the bottom of the third frame also set the Peach Belt Conference record for most hits in a single inning. The Pacers also set the conference record for most hits in a single game at 32.
Josh Strickland (Liberty, NC) led the Falcons by going 2-3 at the plate with two runs and two RBI. Myles Pearl (High Point, NC) was 1-2 with one run and four RBI.
Chris Grandinetti (Broomfield, CO) led the Pacers at the dish in their win, going 5-for-7 with four runs scored and five RBIs. The Pacers opened the game by making sure that there would never be any question as to the winner, scoring 11 runs in the first two innings to take an 11-0 lead.
Pfeiffer, behind a Myles Pearl grand slam in the top half of the third, cut the lead to seven at 11-4, but the Pacers set out upon an uprising like none other before in school history in the bottom of the third to take a stout 26-4 lead.
Senior hurler Chris Miller (Atlantic Beach, FL) took the loss for the Falcons, pitching just an inning and a third before being pulled from the game after giving up eight runs and seven hits. Justin Fry (Augusta, GA) pitched five innings of four-strikeout baseball to record the win for the Pacers on Wednesday evening.
Pfeiffer and USC Aiken will conclude their two-game set with a 4 PM contest on Thursday, April 23.The Automated ScoreBook Pfeiffer University at #7 USC Aiken Apr 22, 2009 at Aiken, SC (Hernandez Stadium) Pfeiffer University 10 (26-19-1) Player AB R H RBI BB SO PO A LOB ------------------------------------------------------ Strickland J ss.......... 3 2 2 2 0 0 1 1 1 Barham, D ph/2b......... 2 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 0 Brown, R 3b.............. 3 1 1 1 1 0 1 3 3 Davis, W 1b.............. 3 0 0 1 0 1 7 1 0 Rouse, B 1b............. 2 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 2 Pou, Z rf................ 3 0 1 0 0 2 0 0 0 Binns, D ph/rf.......... 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Pearl, M lf.............. 2 1 1 4 1 0 0 1 2 Shoemaker, E ph/lf...... 1 1 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 Marsh, E cf.............. 3 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 2 Badillo, C ph/cf........ 2 1 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 Strickland Z dh/p........ 3 1 0 1 1 1 0 0 1 Boehme, H rf/dh......... 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 Dunn, J c................ 1 1 0 0 2 0 7 1 0 Small, T ph/c........... 2 0 2 0 0 0 1 0 0 Lyon, P 2b............... 3 2 2 0 0 1 1 2 0 Medina, J ph/ss......... 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 Miller, C p.............. 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 McDaniel, J p........... 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Russell, C p............ 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Moore, J p.............. 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 Hokanson, R p........... 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Ingram, C p............. 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Shuford, E p............ 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Totals................... 36 10 12 10 7 10 24 10 11 USC Aiken 28 (34-14) Player AB R H RBI BB SO PO A LOB ------------------------------------------------------ MCMORRIS, C. cf.......... 5 2 2 2 1 0 1 0 0 ATTAWAY, J. cf.......... 2 0 1 1 0 0 1 0 0 FRANKLIN, A. rf.......... 5 3 4 3 1 0 3 0 2 SALMON, R. rf........... 2 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 4 RABORN, K. 1b............ 4 2 2 1 2 1 3 1 1 FULMER, W. 1b........... 0 0 0 0 1 0 4 0 0 HOWARD, T. dh............ 5 4 3 4 1 1 0 0 2 ARANAS, N. 3b............ 5 3 4 2 0 0 1 3 0 STEWART, B. ph/3b....... 2 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 BENJAMIN, J. lf.......... 3 4 2 0 2 0 0 1 0 GRAY, J. ph/lf.......... 2 1 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 GRANDINETTI 2b........... 7 4 5 5 0 0 0 2 2 SHERRER, J. c............ 5 3 4 4 0 0 7 0 1 ASBILL, G. ph/c......... 2 0 1 0 0 0 3 0 0 CARMON, S. ss............ 5 2 3 3 0 1 1 0 1 KEY, M. ph/ss........... 2 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 FRY, J. p................ 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 EVANS, I. p............. 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 SMITH, J. p............. 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 PERRY, C. p............. 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Totals................... 56 28 32 25 8 7 27 8 13 Score by Innings R H E ---------------------------------------------- Pfeiffer University. 004 300 102 - 10 12 5 USC Aiken........... 56(15) 002 00X - 28 32 1 ---------------------------------------------- E - Strickland J 2; Brown, R; Pearl, M; Lyon, P; GRANDINETTI.
