ROCKY MOUNT, NC – The NC Wesleyan Battling Bishops (5-1) pounded out 20 hits and cruised to a 20-1 victory over the UMPI Owls (0-3) in the series finale.
A six run second inning would spark the offense for the Bishops and they would continue to build their lead the next few innings. Meanwhile, Nate Gardner (SO, Hertford, NC) would silence the Owls offense, picking up the win by giving up just two hits in five innings. UMPI would score its lone run in the seventh when Jacob Powell (SO, Frankfort, ME) hit a deep fly to center to score Brad Patterson (FR, Harker Heights, TX).
Patterson would go two for three in the game with a double.
The Owls continue their southern trip on Tuesday with a 3 PM game at The Apprentice School.
