JOHNSON CITY, TN- Three Buccaneers had three-hit games: Jeremy Taylor (Fayetteville, Ga.), Caleb Longley (Cleveland, Tenn.), and Robby McCabe (New Port Richey, Fla.), but the Blue and Gold late game comeback falls short as ETSU loses game three to FGCU on Sunday afternoon 11-10 at Thomas Stadium.
Inside the Numbers
Three ETSU players had three hit games today for the Bucs. Taylor went 3-6 with three singles, a RBI, and run scored. He swiped two bases to bring his season total to two. Longley had a productive day at the plate as he spanked three doubles that found the left-center field gap or down the right field line. Longley tallied one RBI and walk while touching home three times. McCabe roped his third home run of the season in the fifth inning and tallied three RBIs in his three-hit performance.
Every FGCU pitcher had at least one run scored against them on Sunday’s outing. The Bucs offense never struck out and walked eight times, which was led by Trey York’s (Knoxville, Tenn.) three in the game.
The Bucs rallied in the eighth inning being down four. The Blue and Golf scored three runs in the bottom half, but ETSU left the bases loaded to leave the game at 11-10. The Bucs had a chance to tie the game in the last inning, but he was gunned down at home by the third baseman.
