No. 12 Senators drop third game of road series
 February 4, 2013

FLORENCE, S.C. – After getting only one hit in the second game of a doubleheader Saturday, the 12th ranked Walters State Senators recorded 12 hits in Sunday’s series finale at Florence Darlington Tech. It still did not result in a win.
The Senators (0-3) dropped another close one to the Stingers, falling 4-3 in the third and final game of the set at Clifford S. Cormell Field.

Walters State got three hits from freshman Jake Farr and a pair of hits each from sophomores Colin Bennett and Matt Harrell and freshman Elijah Sutherland, but four unearned runs for Florence Darlington Tech (3-0) led to another loss for the Senators.

Walters State opened the scoring in the first inning by putting together a four-hit rally. Farr and Reid Mathews both singled, and Bennett drove in Farr with a base hit. Austin Norrell added an RBI single, making it 2-0.

The Stingers claimed the lead in the bottom of the third by pushing four unearned runs across the plate. After a leadoff error, FDTC got a two-run single, and RBI double and a sacrifice fly to take a 4-2 lead.

The Senators trimmed a run off the lead in the fourth. Sutherland reached on a two-out single and scored on a triple by Farr to make it 4-3, but neither team could get a run after that. Walters State had three hits in the last five innings, while the Stingers were held to only one hit the rest of the way.

Josh Kisamore picked up the win on the mound after allowing three earned runs on nine hits in five innings. Tresco Shannon and Jeremy Hatfield both tossed two scoreless innings, with Hatfield recording his second save of the weekend.

Taylor Patterson took the loss for Walters State despite not giving up an earned run. Patterson scattered three hits and gave up all four unearned runs in four innings, while Tyler Brosius tossed three scoreless frames before Chase Cunningham worked a perfect inning.

The Senators will be back in action on Friday and Saturday when they play in the Chipola JUCO Classic in Marianna, Fla., against Shelton State and No. 20 Chipola.
