Tennessee Wesleyan shuts out St. Andrews baseball

Staff report


LAURINBURG — The St. Andrews University baseball team saw its three-game win streak halted by Tennessee Wesleyan Friday.

The Bulldogs bounced the Knights 4-0 in the Appalachian Athletic Conference opener for both schools, holding the visitors from Laurinburg to two hits. St. Andrews entered the contest averaging more than 12 runs per game in its last three outings, but Tennessee Wesleyan pitcher Ryan Hartman allowed just three Knights to reach base in a complete game shutout.

Hartman conceded one walk and struck out 10.

Tennessee Wesleyan (9-4, 1-0) scored runs in the fifth and sixth inning, and added a pair of runs in the seventh. The Bulldogs’ Pedro Barrios had a game-high three hits with one RBI.

Jeremy McDowell and Trey Byrd were the only Knights to get to Hartman as each notched hits.

Travis Dohr took the loss for St. Andrews, pitching eight innings while allowing eight hits and four runs, only one of which was earned.

St. Andrews (10-4, 0-1) will look to avenge its loss when it battles Tennessee Wesleyan today in a doubleheader.
