Belmont Baseball Hits Weekend Opener Out of the Park


Picture by Bree Fabbie

 

The Belmont baseball team beat Eastern Michigan in their home opening series three games to one.  

 

The Bruins secured their first win of the season Friday night 4-3.  

 

Junior transfer Landon Godsey hit two home runs in his Belmont debut, one in the first inning and later in the eighth.  

 

Eastern Michigan responded in the third, making the game 1-1.  

 

Sophomore Will Pryor pitched six innings, only allowing two runs.  

 

The Bruins took the lead in the fifth inning and held onto it. 

 

Freshman pitcher Hank Liss got his first appearance and strikeout as a Bruin.  

 

Saturday was a chilly day at E.S. Rose Park, which caused delays and the initial doubleheader turned into one game.  

 

Sophomore pitcher Jake Timbes had his college debut, starting the game and taking the win.  

 

In the second inning, graduate student Brody Heaton took a swing at the first pitch and sent the ball flying for a home run to get Belmont on the board.  

 

Belmont led 3-1 going into the ninth inning but the Eagles answered with one run to tighten the score. 

 

Redshirt senior Jett Thielke pitched the last four innings and got the win, earning his longest save.  

 

Sunday was a long day at the ballpark with the first game of the doubleheader starting at 11 a.m.  

 

After two back-to-back losses, Eastern Michigan came out bats swinging in game one.  

 

The Eagles were up 0-8 after two innings, leaving Belmont to play catch up the rest of the game.  

 

The Bruins got on the board in the second but could not find their rhythm. 

 

Belmont entered the bottom of the seventh down 2-16 but they didn’t surrender.  

 

They scored four runs with two outs to end the game, losing 6-16.  

 

The last game was intense as the Bruins looked to secure the series win.   

 

Belmont struck first, scoring two runs in the first and second innings.  

 

Freshman Pete Daniel hit his first collegiate home run, soaring the ball over the fence.  

 

Eastern Michigan answered by tying up the game in the fourth and then taking the lead in the top of the sixth.  

 

The Bruins were hot in bottom of the sixth though and scored three runs to take back the lead.  

 

Graduate student Bill Duby had a three up, three down seventh inning, and Belmont came out on top, 9-7.  

 

The Bruins travel to North Alabama University on Tuesday before a weekend series against nationally-ranked South Carolina.

Very cool! Now I am working on my project and the writing part of it. I frequently need assistance with this kind of thing. I found that writing on nursing in particular was challenging, so I assigned nursing paper reviews. This not only enables me to complete my work on schedule but also to earn top grades on my projects.
