Warhawks fall twice to Mountaineers over weekend

Appalachian State put up a pair of seven’s to grab a pair of wins over ULM last weekend.

The first game featured a dominant pitching performance from the Mountaineers staff. The Warhawks mustered just four hits against pitcher Taylor Thurber. Thurber went the distance, striking out seven and not allowing a single run during Appalachian State’s 7-0 victory.

Another Appalachian State pitcher would go nine innings Saturday. Jeffrey Springs allowed 10 hits and allowed four earned runs while striking out seven.

The Warhawks got a pair of RBI from second baseman Josh Faciane. Anthony Herrera, Kodie Tidwell and Danny Springer all added to the Warhawk cause with RBI.

Springer did so by way of a solo home run.

ULM made a late push in the last three innings after falling behind 6-1. The Warhawks scored a run in the seventh and eighth innings and scored a pair in the ninth to leave the game a 7-5 loss.

The Warhawks are now 11-9 with a 1-4 record in conference. The two wins move Appalachian State to 7-15 with a 2-6 conference record.

Head coach Bruce Peddie noted “offense is our hiccup right now.”

ULM wrapped up the series with Appalachian State Sunday.

The team now will travel to Southeastern Louisiana Tuesday. Warhawk Field will be the location for a Sun Belt Conference series against South Alabama this weekend.
