The Belmont Abbey baseball team rallied in the seventh to capture their second consecutive win as they defeated Coker 5-3 last week. The Crusaders battled back twice to overcome deficits as they trailed in the sixth and seventh innings.  The Abbey improves to 3-8 on the year as Coker moves to 6-6.


Adam Overcash and Ben Sneider (pictured #36) both went 2-for-4 in the game. Sean Johnson scored in the first on a wild pitch to give The Abbey the lead. After Coker scored two in the sixth, Ben Gobbel struck and RBI single in the bottom of the sixth to tie the game. A Cobra run in the seventh put Coker back on top but the Crusaders responded with RBI singles from Overcash and Mason Dodd. Joe Cooney started for The Abbey tossing 4.2 innings allowing one hit, no runs on four walks and three strikeouts. Will Carney picked up the win in his 1.1 innings of relief. Austin Hunter recorded his second save striking out three in two innings of work.
