USCB Baseball Claims Conference Series At FMU

USCB’s baseball team picked up its first Sun Conference wins of the season over the weekend, taking two of three at Florida Memorial. 

After a 6-4 win in Friday’s series opener, the Sand Sharks dropped the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader 8-7 before bouncing back to win the rubber game 13-6. 

Ryan McManus had a key two-run single in a three-run fifth inning to break open a tied game in the opener, and Eamonn Collins allowed three runs over 5 1/3 innings to earn the win. 

USCB took a 7-6 lead with two runs in the ninth inning of game 2, only to see the Lions answer with two in the bottom of the frame for a walk-off win. Rob McKinney was 3-for-5 and scored twice and Bobby Wenthe hit a solo homer for the Sand Sharks. 

The Sand Sharks used a seven-run sixth inning to prevail in a wild finale, as Wenthe went 2-for-5 with two doubles and four RBIs, Tristan Triplett was 3-for-4 with two RBIs, and Cole Hamilton and Tavaris Terrell each added two hits and an RBI. 

USCB (6-8, 2-7) hosts St. Andrew’s for a single non-conference game at 2 p.m. Tuesday.
