I’m sure this is not going to make the big graduate of The Citadel very happy, but he is also a big Grimsley fan, so maybe Mr. Sugg will have to let this one slide, as Cody Walker(Grimsley High School) let nothing slip past him on Saturday, when he ran his current team-leading hitting streak to 10 games, in the UNCG Spartans’ 5-1 win, over The Citadel Bulldogs….
Cody Walker going 2-3 with 2 Doubles and 1 run scored…..
GREENSBORO, N.C. – After the game was delayed one hour and 24 minutes due to rain, UNCG came out and scored a run in each of the first three innings as the Spartans defeated The Citadel, 5-1, on Saturday afternoon at the UNCG Baseball Stadium.
The win gave UNCG (30-18, 18-8 Southern Conference) its most wins in the conference since 2000 when the Spartans recorded 20 wins in the SoCon. It was also the Spartans’ 11th win in their last 12 games and the first time they have reached 30 wins since 2008.
Brandon Browne (1-2) picked up his first win of the year after pitching five innings and giving up just one run on four hits. Jarett Miller came in to pitch the final 2 1/3 innings and gave up just one hit and struck out one to record his second save of the season.
The Citadel (20-31, 8-18 SoCon) starter Justin Russell (1-5) allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits in just three innings of work.
Cole Harrison had a breakout 3-4 performance on Saturday and drove in three runs, while Eric Brindle also went 3-4 and scored twice. Cody Walker added a pair of doubles to extend his hitting streak to a team-high 10 games.
