LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, Ga.- After suspending play on Friday afternoon, the Brevard baseball team was unable to overcome Covenant in an 8-5 decision that was officially called after five innings on Saturday. The two teams were only able to play one of the three games that were originally scheduled, because inclement weather in the area permitted only one game.
Brevard (6-22) was able to build a 3-1 lead heading into the second inning on Friday, before the game had to be postponed due to the rain. Freshman Mikey Mejias was able to record the first RBI of the game when he made it to first base on a fielder's choice that got Donny Carsillo out at second, but brought home Jadon Wooten to make the score 1-0.
After the game was knotted up at one after the first inning, Ryan Roon recorded a base hit to bring home Wooten and Eddie Mattocks to increase the Tornado lead by two runs. Covenant was able to score one run in the bottom of the second before game play needed to be suspended.
The action in the contest was picked back up on Saturday, where the Scots reeled off six runs, as four different players notched at least one RBI to make the score 8-3 at the end of the fourth inning.
Brevard will continue their road trip as the team will take on Mars Hill in a two-game series starting on April 11 at 1 p.m.
