Galloway goes the distance, Moman blasts seventh homer

Salisbury, N.C. - Shane Galloway pitched a complete game and Kellen Moman hit his seventh home run of the season Friday night as the Brevard College baseball team defeated 26th-ranked Catawba 10-6 in South Atlantic Conference play at Newman Park. The Tornados (8-27, 2-17) snapped an 11-game Indians winning streak. Catawba falls to 29-8 and 12-7 in conference play.

BC staged a two-out rally to plate three in the top of the first. Jackie Corn singled up the middle and came around to score on Stephen Mullis’ RBI double to right center. Moman followed with a first pitch two-run homer over the right center field fence.

The Tornados added two more runs in the third, as Corn drew a leadoff walk and reached third on another double from Mullis. Moman earned his third RBI with a sacrifice fly to right. Vance Crook added an RBI single to score Mullis.

Galloway (3-3) did not allow a run until the sixth inning. The senior southpaw allowed six runs, three earned, on nine hits. He struck out eight Indians and threw 139 pitches.

A five-run Tornado fifth proved to be the difference. Ronald Patterson, Derek Ham, and Eric Renegar each had RBI singles and Corn hit a sacrifice fly.

Mullis finished the day three for five with an RBI and three runs scored. Moman’s three RBI give him 30 this season, two behind Mullis for the team lead. Patterson and Ham each had two hits in the game.

Catawba made things a little more interesting by scoring two runs in the eighth on a Craige Lyerly triple. They scored three in the ninth on a two-run homer from Josh Hohn and an RBI double from Wade Moore.

Trevor Mullins (6-2) worked three innings and took the loss. He allowed five runs, all earned, on six hits while walking three and striking out four.

Brevard and Catawba conclude their three game series with a doubleheader Saturday at Newman Park.  First pitch of game one is scheduled for 12 p.m.
