RESULTS VS. ERSKINE (CC TOUR) (2008-04-17 10:00:00)

WILSON, NC -- Sophomore right-hander William Buzhardt tossed a shutout over eight innings and eight of Erskine's nine starters got a hit in a 7-1 conquest of Pfeiffer in the Conference Carolinas Baseball Tournament at Fleming Stadium. Erskine, ranked No. 14 nationally and the second seed in the tournament, plated one run in the third, four in the sixth and two in the eighth to raise its record to 39-6. Pfeiffer, 22-27 and the No. 7 seed, was limited to three hits by Buzhardt, but tallied three hits and one run in the top of the ninth to prevent the shutout. Erskine opened the scoring with a double by Greg Huff and a single by Bryan Fogle. The lead grew to 5-0 in the sixth. With two outs, Derek King was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, then centerfielder Keith Hill tripled down the right-field line. Zack Pou made a diving stab at the ball, but it just missed the end of his glove, leading to three runs. Brandon Garrett opened the eighth inning with a solo homer off the right-field foul pole and Huff eventually drove in a run with a sacrifice fly. Pfeiffer broke into the runs column in the ninth on consecutive two-out singles by Eric Shoemaker, Bryan Braxton and Will Davis. Adam Sedberry was the losing pitcher for Pfeiffer. He went six innings and gave up five runs on seven hits. Fogel and Schneider finished with two hits apiece for the Flying Fleet. Erskine will play the Belmont Abbey-Limestone winner at 10 a.m. Friday in Fleming Stadium while Pfeiffer will play St. Andrews at 4 p.m. today (Thursday) at Barton's Nixon Field.
