KERRVILLE, Texas – The Centenary baseball team claimed game three at Schreiner University with a 10-3 decision to secure the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference series over the Mountaineers. SU took the second game 8-4.

Dakota Brown paced the Maroon and White at dish in the doubleheader batting .600 with two RBI. Christian Sebastien and Kody Carson joined Brown with two RBI each while Chris Jones drove in a team-best three runs during the twinbill.

The Gents jumped on the scoreboard first in both outings, but the Mountaineers rallied back in the opener to send the series into a series-deciding game three.

Centenary scored five runs in the early in the third contest before using a four-run, seventh frame to extend the lead to 9-0 and clinch the outing. Carson posted the biggest hit of the inning with a two-run, double. Carson capped the inning with a single that plated Carson.

SU tacked its first two runs on the board in the bottom of the eighth to nip the lead to 9-2. The two squads each added a run in their respected ninth innings to close out the contest.

Holden Novak pitched 7.0 innings in the win allowing just two runs on seven hits. The hurler fanned six batters in the contest while walking a pair.

Six Gents combined to record 13 of the 16 hits in the effort led by Marc Martinez’s three hits. Aaron Quintanilla, Nic Parrott, Sebastien, Carson and Brown each logged two hits each.

In the opening game of the double dip, the Maroon and White scored all four of its run in the first two trips to the plate to take a 4-0 lead. Jones drove in two of the runs, while Michael Schimpf and Sebastien plated the two remaining runs.

Schreiner tied the outing in the fourth and took the lead in the fifth with its second, four-run inning.

Paul Arcement pitched 3.2 innings in the start, but recorded no decision. Arcement allowed four runs on five hits with a pair of strikeouts and three walks. Grant Debevec took the loss allowing two runs on one hit in only a third of an inning of work.

Centenary returns to action on Friday, Apr. 4 at Texas Lutheran.
