LEBANON, Tenn. – Cumberland University baseball’s schedule for this week’s Opening Round in the Mid-South Conference Championships has been set at Georgetown College, with the Phoenix and Tigers beginning the series Friday at 5 p.m. Central Time in Georgetown, Ky.
The two teams will play again at Noon CT on Saturday and an if necessary game would follow directly after that contest.
Cumberland won 2-of-3 from the Tigers in the regular season in Lebanon. Georgetown took advantage of two errors and two walks to plate four unearned runs in a five-run third inning and Breion Barron tossed six-plus innings in an 8-4 Tigers victory to open the series on Saturday.
The Phoenix won both ends of Sunday’s doubleheader. Austin Krajnak’s two-run homer in the eighth provided the winning margin in the opener while Austin Voeller’s three-run shot in the seventh tied the second contest and his two-run single in the eighth won it. Voeller went 5-for-5 in the second contest, including a three-run homer that tied the game at nine in the seventh.
Cumberland and Georgetown played last season in this exact series, also at Georgetown, with the Phoenix taking 2-0 and 4-2 victories.
