Gents Bring Broom Out Against UW-Milwaukee
Sunday, March 9, 2008

SHREVEPORT – The Centenary (9-2) baseball team’s offense scored 10 runs and pounded out 15 hits, while the pitching staff struck out five and allowed just four earned runs on Sunday afternoon in the final two games against UW-Milwaukee. The Gents were victorious in game one, 8-6, and won a nail bitter in the nightcap, 2-1.

 

Game one

 

After senior pitcher Jeremy Sheehan spotted the Panthers (1-10) two runs in the first, Centenary came back in the second and crossed home plate six times. Sheehan was able to clamp down, as he retired eight straight batters between the third and sixth innings before allowing a home run with one down in the sixth.

 

Leading the Gents offense was senior Teddy Saenz, who was 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs. Senior Cameron Penney was 1-for-3 and he had a team-high two RBIs, which came in the huge second inning.

 

Game two

 

Senior pitcher Johnny Noland was a stud in the nightcap, as he threw a complete game three-hitter. Noland also struck out a pair of UWM batters, but did give up an unearned run after error in the field.

 

Juniors Joey Fandel, Ricky Imperiali and Jomar Tabor collected Centenary’s base hits, while Penney and Imperiali also had an RBI.

 

The Gents next action will be on Tuesday and Wednesday at Texas A&M.
