Army Baseball Sweeps Stephen F. Austin
The Army West Point baseball team defeated Stephen F. Austin here Wednesday night, 8-5, to sweep the midweek series. Army shifted to .500 (7-7) on the year after the win and have now registered at least seven runs in six of its seven victories this year. The Black Knights jumped in front early 4-0 but saw their host rally back to knot the score in the sixth inning. Fortunately for the Cadets they used a big seventh inning to ultimately put the game away. Anthony Giachin finished the night 3-for-5 with a run batted in and three runs scored. Andre Walden and Tim Simoes chipped in two hits each, while both also added multiple RBIs. Walden brought home three runs and Simoes reeled in two. Army received solid pitching in the game, beginning with starter Logan Smith. The cow allowed just three hits and three runs (two earned) in 5.0 innings on the mound. Harry Flannery then came in for relief and closed out the final 4.0 innings. The Garrett Park, Md., native gave up four hits and two runs (one earned) in his first win of the year. Read more.
