The HiToms rode a solid performance out of their bullpen and clutch hitting in the ninth inning, as they defeated the Owls 6-2 at McNair Field on Saturday night.

Nick Lommen (Missouri) got the win for the Toms, while Noah Davis (Gardner-Webb) got the save as both combined for four scoreless innings to hold Forest City at bay. Michael Boswell (Tiffin) put together a solid start, allowing only two earned runs in five innings while striking out five.

HPT got on the board first as Blayne Jones (Dallas Baptist) doubled into the gap in right-center field, and Myles Christian (Middle Tennessee St) came around to score. Angel Zarate (North Carolina) would drive in Jones, and the Toms would take a 2-0 lead after one.

The Owls would tie the game with a two-run homer, but the Toms would take the lead back in the seventh, as Danny Lynch (Southern Miss) drove in Kip Brandenburg (UNC Wilmington) on an RBI single.

Three runs in the ninth off the bats of Jones, Drew Smith (Northeast CC), and Ben Newbert (Bloomsburg) put the game out of reach.

On Sunday, the HiToms return back to Finch Field to host the Martinsville Mustangs. First pitch is set for 5:00 p.m.
