Ninth-inning rally falls short at Emory

Evan Nicholson
Evan Nicholson had three hits against Emory on Sunday.

The Denison Big Red generated four runs in the top of the ninth, but it wasn't enough as Emory edged out a 9-7 decision on Sunday afternoon in Atlanta, Ga.

Emory opened the scoring in the bottom of the first when a single to left by Daniel Iturrey scored Jared Welch from second.  The Big Red answered in the next frame with a pair of runs.  Junior Kyle Clemmenson opened the inning with a base hit down the left field line.  The junior came around to score on a double to the gap in right center by senior Evan Nicholson.  The senior advanced to third on the throw home.  After a walk was issued to Justin Vaske, Nicholson crossed the dish on a double play ball hit to the shortstop.

The Eagles tied the contest in the third when a triple by Welch scored Brandon Hannon from second base.  With the home team threatening to retake the lead, junior pitcher Tim Duxbury induced a pop up to Nicholson for the second out of the inning.  After walking Iturrey to put runners at the corners, the DU hurler got Jay Page to line out to second for the final out.

The home team regained the lead thanks to a three-run fifth inning.  With two outs, Iturrey, Page and Ryan Tosccano each recorded RBI singles to put Emory on top 5-2.  The Eagles tacked on three more runs in the sixth on a pair of walks and a wild pitch.

After the two squads exchanged runs in the top of the seventh and bottom of the eighth, the Big Red trailed 9-3 heading into the final inning.  Senior Dave Holmes reached base and advanced to second on a fielding error by the left fielder to open the ninth.  Junior Lowell Hall followed with a pinch-hit single to center that put runners on the corners with no outs, while a one-out walk issued to Tyler Nicholson loaded the bags.  Senior Andrew Mahle drove in two runs and moved Nicholson to third on a base hit to right field.

Following the base knock, Emory handed the ball to reliever Paul Schwendel.  The Eagle pitcher gave up an RBI single to Clemmenson that plated Nicholson and moved Mahle to third.  During Evan Nicholson's at bat, a wild pitch by Schwendel allowed Mahle to score and Clemmenson to trot into second base.  After walking the Nicholson, Schwendel got Vaske to fly out to left and ended the Big Red rally.

Evan Nicholson went 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored, while Mahle had two hits and two RBIs.  Clemmenson also logged two hits.  Duxbury suffered the loss after surrendering five runs on eight hits in five innings of work.  The junior also struck out five in his season debut.

Iturrey, Page and Toscano all logged two hits and two RBIs, while Welch posted two hits and scored three times.  Starter Connor Dillman improved to 3-1 after allowing three runs on seven hits in 6.1 innings.  Schwendel picked up his first save of the season despite a hit, a walk and a wild pitch in a third of an inning.

Denison falls to 1-3, while Emory improves to 7-5.  The Big Red returns to action on Saturday against Heidelberg at the Snowbird Baseball Classic in Port Charlotte, Fla.  First pitch is slated for 4 p.m.
