David Higuera hit a sacrifice fly to break up a pitcher's duel in game two with University of the Cumberlands. The Tigers (18-12, 6-6) did most of their damage two innings later though as Justin Moore's triple ignited a five-run seventh to secure the win.
Georgetown sent nine batters to the plate and forced the Patriots into three pitching changes, trying to stall the offense and end the inning. T.C. Oneal got it started with a single and scored on Moore's triple. That tied the game, 2-2. Higuera singled in Moore for the winning run.
Tyler Arthur got the win, giving up eight hits and just two runs in eight innings. Chad Richie came in and closed the door with three strikeouts in his one inning.
Marvin Flores went 3-for-4 from the plate and Oneal was 2-for-3. Higuera finished with two RBI. Moore, Martin Lemus and EJ Murray each had one.
Game three, UC took the lead and never looked back to avoid the sweep on the weekend. The Patriots scored once in the third and added insurance runs in the sixth and seventh for the 3-0 victory. Georgetown had six hits, but stranded six runners.
Shaun Meyer went six innings, allowing six hits and two runs with four strikeouts. Ryan Serrato pitched the final inning. He gave up one hit and one run with one strikeout.
