Benches clear as Savannah State sweeps Bethune-Cookman in doubleheader

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida  --  Catcher Chris Biocic's pickoff throw to third base sailed into left field, allowing Savannah State's Lee Moore to score the go-ahead run Saturday as the Tigers completed a doubleheader sweep against Bethune-Cookman with a 3-2 victory at Jackie Robinson Ballpark.

The game was marred by a bench-clearing incident in the third inning that led to two Savannah State players and one B-CU player to be ejected.

In the first game, Tigers ace Kyle McGowin improved to 7-0 on the season as Savannah State ripped B-CU 14-4. The pro prospect scattered nine hits and struck out nine in eight innings without walking a batter.
“We knew they were going to throw a really good pitcher in the first game, and he did a good job,'' B-CU coach Jason Beverlin said. “We had some good swings early in the game, but we let it get away from us.''
The Wildcats fell to 13-16, 6-5 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. They have already matched their MEAC loss total of last season, which was their most conference losses since 2005. The 'Cats had gone undefeated in the conference two years in a row (2010-11).
