MOORE, Okla. -- Central Christian College coach Bob Marsh has been around baseball a long time, but he’d never seen anything like this.
In the Tigers’ first game of a doubleheader Tuesday against Hillsdale, CCC was down 2-1 in the fifth inning. With two out and a runner on, the Tigers were able to score an amazing 14 runs to key a 15-2 win.
“I have never seen 14 two-out runs scored in one inning and (Steven) Abbott actually went to the plate three times with a walk and two singles,” Marsh said.
Micah Womacks was the beneficiary of all that offense to pick up the win, fanning six, allowing just four hits and walking one.
Sam Carr homered and had two singles, while Abbott, Aaron Premer and Troy Richter all had two hits.
CCC won the second game 9-6 to complete the sweep. Premer homered early on to jumpstart the offense. The Tigers continued to pile up the offense to make starting pitcher Chris Wood’s job easier. He gave up three hits and one earned run in five innings. Hillsdale did score five runs in the final inning to make things interesting.
Abbott went 3 for 3 with a homer and four RBI, while Premer had two hits and Wade Wedow also had two hits and drove in three runs. Womacks and Troy Richter added two hits.
“Today we laced on our hitting shoes,” Marsh said. “Our confidence is growing.”
CCC, now 8-14 after an 0-8 start, goes to College of the Ozarks for twinbills on Friday and Saturday.
