Young Harris baseball falls to Tennessee Wesleyan, 5-4

POSTED: April 25, 2012 10:13 p.m.

Stephen Branca and Jake Stone each hit two-run homers for Tennessee Wesleyan College, but the Bulldogs had to hold off a furious ninth-inning rally by Young Harris College to preserve a 5-4 baseball victory Wednesday at Zell B. Miller Field in Young Harris.

The Bulldogs, who are ranked No. 7 in the NAIA, won their second consecutive game against the Mountain Lions in as many days and improved to 38-11. Young Harris fell to 35-12. The Mountain Lions conclude their 2012 season next week with a three-game series against King (Tenn.) College in Bristol, Tenn.

Tennessee Wesleyan took a 2-0 lead in the top of the third as Branca hit his 15th homer of the season to left field off Young Harris starter and Buford High grad Josh Rudnik (4-4). The Bulldogs added a run in the fifth as Anthony Biox hit his second of two triples in the game to right field to take a 3-0 lead.

Young Harris didn’t have a batter reach base off Bulldog starter Zach Fleshman (4-1) until one out in the sixth when Bowen Klosinski scratched with a single up the middle. The Mountain Lions finally scored a run an inning later as Sam Tarlton, Jack Morrow and Zach Bricknell led off the seventh with consecutive singles.
