IRVING, Texas – The Centenary baseball team logged its first Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference win on Saturday as the Gents rallied back to knock off the University of Dallas 5-4 in 11 innings. The victory is the fourth straight for the Gents who improve to 7-10 overall and 1-0 in conference play.

Adam Wilson delivered the game-winning hit with a double down the left field line to score Nic Parrott. The hit was the second of the game for Wilson who was one of five Gents to tally multiple hits on the day.

Grant Debevec (1-1) secured his first win of the season pitching 2.2 innings in relief of Layton Tromba. Debevec fanned two and allowed three walks along with a pair of hits in his time on the mound. Paul Arcement gathered his second save of the season tossing the final inning and recording two strikeouts paired with a walk.

Michael Schimpf, Chris Jones, Aaron Quintanilla and Dakota Brown each joined Wilson with two hits each. Marc Martinez and Parrott along with Wilson each drove in a run.

Tromba tossed 6.2 frames allowing all four Crusader runs on eight hits with three strikeouts and two walks. Trey Lavespere pitched two-thirds of an inning in the effort.

Trailing 3-2 heading into the sixth inning, Parrott tied the contest for the second time singling to right field to score Christian Sebastien. UD answered back in the seventh with a homerun from Alex Thorton.

The Maroon and White knotted the contest at four-all in the eighth as Quintanilla scored on a balk sending the contest into extra frames.

Brian Donley (0-2) tossed 2.0 innings in the loss for the Blue and White striking out two with a walk and three hits allowed.

Game two of the series, which was stopped in the third due to incoming storms with the Gents leading 2-0, resumes at 12:30 p.m. Sunday with the third contest slated to follow.
