Box Score

Knoxville, Tenn. - Dusty Johnson hurled six shutout innings and Joey Andrews picked up his first save as the Tennessee Volunteers thwarted a ninth-inning rally by the UNC Asheville Bulldogs in taking a 3-1 victory at Lindsey Nelson Stadium.

The Bulldogs (15-17) put the tying run on base with a lead off single by Bill Carley and a walk by Steve Sherman off Vol reliever Casey Eisemann. Andrews then came on to retire the final three hitters, two on strikeouts, to preserve the win.

Johnson (4-1) scattered four hits in his six-inning performance, striking out three and walking one in picking up the win. Steve Wesley and Patrick Green each tossed one inning of relief.

Tennessee (22-14) scored one in the first on a sacrifice fly and tacked on another in the second on an RBI single by Jeremy Cabbage that scored Michael Rivera who singled, stole second and took third on a ground out.

Javi Herrera scored the third run on Jordan Czarniecki's bloop hit to center in the seventh giving the Vols a 3-0 lead.

The Bulldogs, who out-hit the Volunteers 8-7, scratched for their lone run in the eighth off Green when Jake McConiga scored from second on pinch hitter Charles Pippitt's single to center. McConiga reached on a fielders choice and took second on a wild pitch.

Czarniecki and Josh Alley each had two hits to pace the Vols, while Daniel Pruitt got two hits, with a double to lead UNCA.

 

 

Brad Beck (1-3) took the loss as he gave up all three runs on six hits. Dustin Sode finished the game with 1 2/3 innings of relief.

Tennessee travels to Lexington, Ky., to face the Kentucky Wildcats in a three-game series Apr. 18-20. Game times are 6 p.m., 7 p.m. and 2 p.m. ET for all three games.
