GREENSBORO, N.C. â€“ Nate Bankoffâ€™s two-run homer in the sixth inning broke a
2-2 tie and sent visiting Tufts University to a 7-3 baseball win at Guilford
College Monday. Chase Rose had an RBI double in the decisive sixth frame and
added a two-run homer in the seventh for the Jumbos (3-0).
Derek Miller (1-0) notched his first win of the young season with 7 2/3
innings of five-hit ball. He walked three and fanned six before giving way
to Ed Bernstein with two runners on in the eighth inning. Bernstein got out
of the jam by striking out Will Cornelius and then fanned two in a scoreless
ninth for his first save of 2010.
Kyle Wooden paced Guilfordâ€™s offense with two of the Quakersâ€™ six hits,
including his team-leading sixth homer of the year, a solo shot in the sixth
inning. Guilford starter Zach Daw (0-2) looked strong early and fanned a
career-high nine in 5 2/3 innings before Tufts came alive in the sixth
inning. Will Henschel threw two scoreless innings of relief for Guilford
(10-12), which has lost seven straight.
The Quakers host Roanoke College Tuesday in a 3:30 p.m. Old Dominion
Athletic Conference contest on McBane Field.
