The Bulldogs fell to the loser's bracket on Monday when they lost to IU Southeast and had to pull out two wins on Tuesday to remain alive in the tournament. First, TWU played Talladega at 11:00 am and had a three-run seventh inning to defeat Talladega (Ala.) 5-3.
Trailing 3-1 in the bottom of the seventh, Tennessee Wesleyan had runners on the corner with one out when Newhon Norkeh doubled to deep left field to score one. Pedro Barrios was able to score on the play from first as well thanks to an error by the left fielder, tying the game at 3-all. Norkeh later scored on a Dan Ward single, giving the Bulldogs the 4-3 advantage.
Tennessee Wesleyan tacked on an insurance run in the eighth to seal the 5-3 victory.
Brantley Flanagan improved to 3-2 on the year with the win, allowing three runs, two earned, on five hits and no walks with four strikeouts in seven innings of work. Grant Lang tossed a perfect 1 1/3 innings to lock up his second save of the year.
Offensively for Tennessee Wesleyan, Barrios finished 3-for-5 with a run scored, while Norkeh went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and a RBI.
Cameron Davis drove in two runs in going 1-for-4 for Talladega.
After spending the entire game playing from behind in the Bulldogs second game, Tennessee Wesleyan (41-19 overall) scored the game-winner on a wild play for the 8-7, 10th-inning victory.
With one out in the bottom of the 10th, Collin Ridout ripped a double to deep right-center field. Dan Ward was then intentionally walked, bringing up Ryan Philips with two on and one out. Philips hit a high popup to second and was called out immediately for an infield fly. However, the second baseman dropped the ball, and Ridout took off for third. The throw to third sailed high and went to the fence, allowing Ridout to get up and race home for the game-winning run.
Marian ends the season with a 30-23 overall record.
