TU splits doubleheader

THOMASVILLE — The Thomas University Night Hawks split Friday’s doubleheader against the St. Catharine’s College Patriots. The Night Hawks fell short in game one at Varnedoe Stadium after making one error and giving up one run in the first inning.

“We have some work to do,” Coach Mike Lee said. “We aren’t swinging the bats like we should. We need to take advantage of the situations we’re put in.”

Junior centerfielder, Lloyd Hutcherson (2-3) singled to center in the bottom of the fourth leading the Night Hawks to their first hit of the game. Hutcherson advanced to second on a stolen base.

Senior starting pitcher, Trent Stoker, received the loss despite giving up only three hits.

In game two, the Night Hawks gave up two hits in the top of the second, but rallied back to score a run in the bottom of the inning. Sophomore first baseman, Josh Bruijn, (1-4, 2H, 1RBI) scored after sophomore designated hitter, Brent Slaughter, (1-3, 1RBI) grounded out to second.

The Night Hawks left two players on base.

The Patriots scored again at the top of the seventh, but wouldn’t get the win.

The Night Hawks beat the Patriots 5-4.

“We’re doing a good job of staying in the game,” Lee said.

Coach Lee is impressed with his team’s pitching this far into the season.

“Our pitching has been outstanding,” Lee said. “I’m pretty confident about the games on Saturday.”

The Night Hawks head into Saturday’s games with a 3-2 record.

“We’re going to make a few adjustments,” Lee said. “We’re going to move the guys up in the lineup who are swinging well.”

The Night Hawks host the St. Catharine’s College Patriots at Varnedoe Stadium Saturday at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
