Christian Dix had a standout performance in Brevard’s 10-2 win in the day’s first game, going 3-for-5 with two runs scored and a pair batted in. Dix scored Brevard’s second run of the day after launching a first-pitch triple into Memorial Stadium’s spacious gap in right center and racing home on a wild pitch in the fourth inning.
Moments later, he became the first Brevard player in the NCAA era to hit two triples in a game, crushing a pitch to nearly the same spot to drive home two more runs in a six-run fifth inning that saw Brevard send 10 men to the plate.
All from the Brevard College web site….
Brevard took a slim 3-2 lead on a bases-clearing triple by John Slade in the top of the fourth inning of Game Two but found itself deadlocked again after Anderson’s Travis Smith led off the bottom of the frame with a home run to center field. The score remained tied until the sixth, when Slade notched his fourth RBI of the day on a double to right center that gave Brevard another one-run advantage.
The score held until the bottom of the seventh. The Trojans placed the leadoff batter aboard on a single to left field on an 0-1 offering from Tyler Konzen. Two pitches later, Steven Cooper launched a home run to right center to give Anderson a dramatic come-from-behind victory and keep the Tornados from clinching their fourth victory in the last five conference series.
John Slade had a tremendous day at the plate, going 5-for-9 with two runs scored and four RBI across the doubleheader. He tied a Brevard single-game NCAA-era record with two doubles in Friday’s second game.
Slade has now hit safely in 10 of his last 11 games and has eight multi-hit games in that span, including both of Friday’s contests and six of the last seven games overall. Since his streak began on March 21 in the first game of a doubleheader against Lenoir-Rhyne, Slade has raised his batting average 73 percentage points by batting .457 (21-for-46) with 10 RBI. He also has seven extra-base hits in the span and is slugging .652.
