Murfeesboro, NC- The Coker College Baseball Team did not get off to the start that they had hoped for as they dropped two games to the Chowan University Hawks on Saturday afternoon. The Cobras lost game one of the double-header 11-0 and then lost game two 7-5.

 

In game one, Chowan took advantage of Cobra pitcher Jayson Clarke (0-1) and three Coker errors to score 11 earned runs on 13 hits in Clarke’s three and two thirds innings of work.

 

Offensively, Brantley Bell was 2-for-2, while Julio Gomez was 1-for-3 and Steve Evans was 1-for-4.

 

Game two saw Coker’s bats finally find some life, as they scored five runs on six hits and a Chowan error. Unfortunately, for the Cobras, Chowan’s bats were hotter than Coker’s, as the Hawks scored seven runs on 11 hits and three Coker errors.

 

Coker pitcher Brad Boob (0-1) took the loss, allowing seven runs on ten hits in four and two-thirds innings of work.

 

At the plate, Ben Davidson was 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored, while Gomez and Eric Losten were each 1-for-2 with an RBI, with Losten also scoring a run.  Seth Weinberg and Trey Lynch were each 1-for-3, with Weinberg recording an RBI.

 

The Cobra Baseball Team returns to the field tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. for the final game in the three game series.
