ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. - The NC Wesleyan College Baseball team rallied from an early deficit and then scored a late run to break a 7-all tie to defeat former conference rival Ferrum College (Va.) 8-7 at home on Tuesday afternoon.
After trailing 3-1 after two innings, Wesleyan then scored 3 runs each in the 3rd and 4th innings to take a 7-3 lead. However, Ferrum would rally scoring 4 runs over the next two innings to tie the matchup at 7 heading to the 7th inning. NCWC then scored the go-ahead and eventual game-winning run in the 7th inning as senior catcher Brandon Wheat came around to score on a Ferrum balk.
Sophomore starting pitcher Drew Tubb lasted just 3 innings for the Bishops allowing 4 hits and 3 runs with 2 strikeouts while senior reliever Chris Aubry threw one scoreless inning. Junior Reliever Luke Mills then came on in the 8th to get the 2 inning save with 2 Ks as well.
NCWC improves to 4-3 on the season while Ferrum drops to 4-5. The Bishops are back in action this weekend as they go on the road to face Brevard College (NC) on Saturday in a Noon doubleheader.
