MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — Derek Taylor allowed no earned runs and three hits as Garrett College salvaged the day with a 10-1 win over Alfred State Tuesday at the Rypken Experience in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Garrett began the day by dropping a 4-1 decision to Mercer (N.J.), before bouncing back to score five times in the first inning in the win over the Pioneers of New York. The Lakers (6-11) play again today at noon against Sullivan County (N.Y.).
After scoring five times in the top of the first inning, Alfred State managed to get an unearned run in the bottom half, but would not put another run across. Johnathan Crucey singled three times, while Michael Drake and Hector Blanco had two singles each. Corey Podvasnik hit a one-run double.
The Lakers scored five more times over the final two innings, including a four-run seventh, to finish with 10 runs.
In the early loss to Mercer, Garrett was held quiet by a complete-game performance by Brian Stine. Stine surrendered three hits, but did not allow one run past the second inning and faced the minimum number of batters over the last five innings.
Dan Denton had a double, single and an RBI for Mercer. Crucey hit a double and Alan Bencit added an RBI-single for the Lakers.
