IRVING, Texas – The Centenary baseball team had its seven-game, Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference win streak snapped in extra innings on Saturday afternoon as the Gents (24-11, 15-4 SCAC) fell 5-4 at the University of Dallas.

Despite out hitting the Crusaders in the contest 12-10, UD came up the winning run in the 10th inning on a Tug McRoberts single to left center scoring Matt Farris from third.

The Maroon and White tied the contest in the eighth frame at 4-all as Nic Parrott scored on a fielder’s choice.

Grady Flournoy (2-3) took the loss for the Gents pitching the final two-thirds of the contest allowing the winning run on two hits. Centenary starter Cole Thompson was chased away 1.2 innings into the outing after walking five batters and giving up four, earned runs on two hits. Taylor Henry tossed 6.2 innings in relief holding UD off the scoreboard after giving up six hits and three walks paired with seven strikeouts.

The Gents plated three runs in the sixth inning to cut into the Crusaders lead as Jemari James and Christian Sebastien each tallied RBI doubles around a Parrott RBI single.

Tyler Clakley led the way at the dish with three hits while James and Sebastien each recorded a pair of hits to round out the multiple hit performers.

The Crusaders jumped on the board first with a run in their first trip to the plate and followed with three runs in the second inning to take an early, 4-0 lead.

Chris Schierhorn (3-3) logged the win on the bump for the Blue and White with four innings of work and only allowing a run on three hits. Andrew Bossert tossed six frames in the start giving up three runs on nine hits.
