PULASKI, Tenn. -

PULASKI, Tenn. _ No. 11 William Carey University took a double baseball dip with 11-9 and 7-0 victories Friday before finishing off the Southern States Athletic Conference sweep of Martin Methodist College with an 8-2 victory Saturday.

Carey (22-9, 7-2 SSAC) got off to a slow start Friday, falling behind 2-0 in the opening game, but then scored six runs on six hits in the third inning to grab a 6-2 lead.

David Pimentel extended the advantage with a sixth-inning grand slam before Spencer Cayten’s RBI single an inning later gave the Crusaders a large enough cushion to survive in seven innings.

In Friday’s nightcap, Carey starter Hunter Speer allowed just four hits on 91 pitches over nine innings in the complete-game shutout. He struck out three and walked three.

Carey broke open a scoreless game, taking a 5-0 lead in the third inning. Lucas Scott had an RBI-double in the rally, while Christian Smith, Jake Smith and Marcus Buckley each hit run-scoring singles.

Saturday, Cole Edgens picked up where Speer left off, allowing one run on five hits in eight innings. Edgens struck out seven.

Buckley put Carey up 1-0 in the first inning and then made it 3-0 when Caleb Ledet and Jake Smith drove in runs in the sixth inning. Wes Brown’s RBI-triple in the seventh inning gave the Crusaders a 4-0 lead in the seventh and Carey scored four runs on four hits in the ninth.

The Crusaders will host the University of West Alabama at 4 p.m. Wednesday at Milton Wheeler Field.
