Barons Baseball begins season with two wins

MOUNT VERNON—A full helping of rain overnight couldn’t spoil opening day for the Brewton-Parker College Barons as Edward Waters College ended up on the wrong end of two well played games Saturday afternoon in Mount Vernon, said Barons Baseball Head Coach Greg “Boo” Mullins.

             

Game one went to the Barons 16-1.  Drew Parker took the hill for the Barons in game one, and he never struggled, said Mullins.  His final line for the evening was five innings, one run, on two hits with six strikeouts, and no walks. 

             

A solid pitching performance, to say the least, but the offense stole the show in this one, as the Barons combined for 16 runs on 13 hits including four for extra bases. Kale Lewis led the way for Brewton-Parker going 3-3, with a double, four RBI, and two runs scored. 

             

Valdosta State transfer Robby Kuzdale also played well in his Brewton-Parker debut, going 2-3, with a walk, and a double, two RBI, and two runs scored.

             

Game Two was more of the same, as the Barons continued to pile up runs, and ended the evening with an 11-2 victory. Ricky Rogers got the start in game two, and in 5 and 2/3 innings of work, gave up two runs (both unearned) on two hits, and struck out eight while walking none.       

Joey Delgado finished the sixth, and Delgis Soto struck out the side in the seventh to clinch the victory for Brewton-Parker. 

             

The Barons will travel to Daytona Beach, Fla., to take on nationally ranked Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in a three-game series Feb. 5-6, with a single game Friday beginning at 7 p.m. Saturday’s doubleheader begins at 1 p.m.
