Delta State Strikes Out At NCAA Division II World Series

 DELTA STATE  5  COLUMBUS STATE (GA) 6 


MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) _ Shawn Sewell's ninth inning RBI single up the middle gave Columbus State a come-from-behind 6-5 win to eliminate Delta State in the NCAA Division II College World Series on Tuesday.

The Cougars advance to play Kutztown at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Jay Garner allowed one run in his first seven innings of work as Delta State built a 5-1 lead.

But Columbus State (44-15) got a pair of two-run homers from Ladd Hammond and Taylor Groce to tie it in the eighth. Sewell's single drove in Justin Demant, pinch running on a one-out double by
Ben Sutter.

``We just had one good inning,'' Columbus State coach Greg Appleton said.

Delta State (50-8) took the lead from Cougar starter Buck Bradberry, scoring two runs in the fourth and one each in the second, sixth and seventh innings. Eric Smith drove in two runs
with a a pair of doubles and Jud Thigpen led with three hits.

Brian Baker (5-0) pitched a scoreless ninth for Columbus State. Reliever Dusty Hughes (2-2) allowed two hits and one run in 1-3 of an inning.

``We didn't lose this game late. We should have done more early, Several times we had our chances and we just didn't make the most of our opportunities early in the game,'' said Delta State head coach Mike Kinnison.

The Statesmen were the top-ranked team in Division II for the much of the latter part of the season. They were playing without shortstop Edwin Maysonett, a .353 hitter, who broke his hand in
Sunday's loss to Ashland.
