In a rain-soaked Thomas Stadium, Appalachian State University and ETSU got thru six and a half innings with the Mountaineers leading, 3-1, before the second rain delay came and suspended the game until
April 30. The final three and a half innings will be played at Beaver Field in Boone at 5 p.m.
After a rain delay postponed action in the fourth inning, the inclement weather arrived again after the third out in the top half of the seventh inning with App State reliever Josh Wilson entering the game. Play will resume from that stopping point.
In the six and a half completed innings, Appalachian pounded out six hits, headlined by Hector Crespo’s triple in the third inning to lead off the inning. Brandon Burris, who entered the game in after the first rain delay in the fourth inning, recorded the only other multi-base hit with a one-out double to leftcenter field.
After a scoreless first, the Apps plated two runs in the second inning, as Michael Pierson singled up the middle bring in Gabe Dimock and open the scoring. The next batter, Josh Zumbrook, plated Dillon Dobson on a sacrifice fly to centerfield.
In the ensuing inning, ETSU led off the inning with a triple by Andrew Green and a double by Kevin Phillips, which cut the App State led in half, 2-1. The Apps got their final run of the rain-shortened game in the third inning when Crespo scored after his triple on a groundout by Noah Holmes.
The Apps return to the High Country and Southern Conference play on Friday for a three-game set with Samford. First pitch on Friday from Beaver Field is set for 6:30 p.m.
