ASU Baseball Completes Fourth Weekend Series
Appalachian State University baseball completed its fourth weekend series sweep of the season by taking a pair of decisions from visiting Oakland on Sunday at Beaver Field. Appalachian downed Oakland, 14-5, in the completion of Saturday’s suspended game then topped the Grizzlies, 10-5, in Sunday’s regularly scheduled series finale. By completing the three-game series sweep, Appalachian moved to 15-0 at home this season and became only the third club in program history to win 22 of its first 27 games. After easily finishing off the victory in Saturday’s suspended game the Mountaineers counted on Trey Holmes and Tyler Tewell to the sweep, with Holmes hitting a pair of home runs and Tewell going 4-for-5 in Sunday’s finale. Appalachian continues an eight-game homestand on Tuesday when it hosts longtime rival East Tennessee State at Smith Stadium. First pitch is set for 6 p.m.
