RESULTS VS. SAPC (CC TOUR) (2008-04-17 16:00:00)

WILSON, N.C.—Senior Shawn Coke (West Palm Beach, Fla.) ripped a walk-off single down the left field baseline to guide No. 7 seed Pfeiffer University to a 9-8 comeback victory over No. 8 seed St. Andrews Presbyterian College in an elimination game on the first day of the Conference Carolinas Baseball Tournament Thursday afternoon at Barton College’s Nixon Field. The Falcons, who maintain a 23-28 record, will face No. 6 seed Limestone College at 1:00 p.m. Friday afternoon in an elimination game at Nixon Field. The Knights are eliminated from the tournament with a record of 13-36. The two teams combined for 34 hits, including 18 by Pfeiffer. Coke was 5-for-6 with two RBI while sophomore teammate Zach Pou (Stanley, N.C.) collected four hits. Sophomore Josh Strickland (Liberty, N.C.) added three hits for the Falcons. Sophomore Charles Weber (Concord, N.C.) led St. Andrews offensively with three hits including a home run. Senior Michael Eastwood (Grantsboro, N.C.), junior J.T. Maquire (Jarrettsville, Md.), and sophomore Alex Ridout (Wake Forest, N.C.) all provided two RBI. Knights’ junior Jeremy Fisher (Catonsville, Md.) led off the game with a single to center field and later scored on another bloop single to center by classmate Kyle Norris (Laurel Hill, N.C.). Coker tied the score at 1-1 in the bottom of the first on a double by Pou. Weber drilled his first home run of the season in the top of the second. Weber’s solo blast over the left-field fence put St. Andrews ahead, 2-1, for the second time. Just like the first inning the Falcons quickly responded in the home half, plating a pair of runs to take their first lead. Senior Hayes Hinson (Raleigh, N.C.) supplied an RBI-single while Strickland plated Hinson with a triple in the left-center gap. Freshman Kyle McGarity (Stanfield, N.C.) doubled up Pfeiffer’s lead with an RBI-single in the third. A Ridout single through the right-side and a sac fly by Maquire in the fourth deadlocked the score for the second time at 4-4. A Coke double in the home half of the fourth plated a Falcon run for the fourth consecutive inning to start the game. The Knights pulled ahead 8-5 with a four-run sixth. Ridout and Maquire once again supplied RBI while Eastwood capped the rally with a two-run double. Pfeiffer cut the deficit to 8-7 with a pair of unearned runs in the bottom half. Senior starter T.J. Chrusch (Fleetwood, Pa.), who had already pitched in relief in St. Andrews first game of the day, maintained the Knights slim lead deep into the game but McGarity finally tied the game up for the third time with a run-producing single in the eighth, setting up the last inning drama. Strickland started the decisive rally with a one-out single. After a walk, Strickland moved over to third base on a fielder’s choice before trotting the final 90 feet home when Coke smacked the walk-off hit past the diving St. Andrews third baseman. Sophomore closer Andrew Oliver (Cornelius, N.C.) was credited with the win for Pfeiffer while Knights freshman reliever Kyle Cummings (Wake Forest, N.C.) was tagged with the loss.
