Atlantic Sun: Sombody's Going Home
By Bryan App - May 24, 2007
Sixth-seeded Lipscomb and fifth-seeded Gardner-Webb are tied at 0 going into the bottom of the third. Both teams lost Wednesday in the first round of the A-Sun, and the season of this game's loser will end today.
Senior right-hander Rob Smithson got the start for Lipscomb. He's 17-11 this season with a 5.02 ERA. He'll go against the Bulldogs' Ben Campbell, who's 6-5 with a 4.55 ERA.
Gardner-Webb won a coin flip to determine which team would be the home team, since both sat in the visitor's dugout yesterday.
Last night, the Bison lost to the real home team, Stetson, in a game they seemed to be in controlling. Lipscomb gave up three runs in the bottom of the eighth 4-3 loss that ended after 11 p.m. It will be interesting to see if the Bison can recover mentally and physically to stay alive in the A-Sun.
