Southern Utah Scores Six Times Against Gents
Thursday, May 8, 2008

CEDAR CITY, Utah – Southern Utah scored four times in the first three innings to come away with a, 6-1, victory over the Centenary baseball team on Thursday afternoon in Summit League play.

The Gents brought the game within three in the third, but couldn’t draw any closer. Cameron Penney drove in the only run for Centenary on a ground out, which plated Jomar Tabor, who was 3-for-4.

Centenary’s bats went quiet in the middle three frames, as the Gents could not get a base hit until the seventh inning. Tim Deering had Centenary’s fourth hit in the ninth on a single to right, but the team couldn’t draw any momentum off the knock.

Justin Kraft (8-4) took the loss, as he went seven plus, allowed 10 hits, five runs, walked none and struck out seven. Dustin Wittwer pitched seven innings, scattered three hits, allowed one run, but walked four and fanned three.

The same two teams will meet Friday for a doubleheader beginning at 1:00 p.m. central time. The first game of the doubleheader can be heard on www.gocentenary.com, while the second contest will be determined after the softball teams result in the morning.
