TFC Diamond Eagles Split Double-Header
The Toccoa Falls College Baseball team split a double-header with Talladega College Tornadoes on the TFC campus Monday. The Tornadoes came into the game with a 36-17 record, and had won 11 straight games prior to Monday’s non-conference bout. But TFC’s Ronnie Stewart’s walk-off home run highlighted the day as the Eagles won game one 10-7. The bomb was Stewart’s 9th of the year, and delivered his team-leading 46th RBI of the season. Second baseman Josh Ward upped his season average to .354 with another 3-4 outing. Zach Breeden took the win from the mound with two and two-thirds of scoreless ball.
TFC dropped the second game of the double-header, 13-7. Justin Key, the NCCAA’s leader in on base percentage (.537), finished game two 3-5 from the plate with a run scored. Starter Zach Murdock was handed the loss for TFC with five innings pitched.
The Eagles, with a record of 28 & 14, will conclude their regular season with a home doubleheader on Saturday against ShorterCollege. Saturday will also serve as Senior Day for the Eagles. Following the regular season finale, Toccoa will travel to Point University on May 5-8 to participate in the NCCAA region tournament in West Point, Georgia.
