Friday, 08 February 2008
DAHLONEGA, GA – Pfeiffer defeated 20th-ranked North Georgia 4-3 Friday evening in non-conference baseball action. North Georgia drops to 2-2 on the season, while Pfeiffer improves to a 4-1 with the win.

After four scoreless innings, Hayes Henson put the Falcons on top in the fifth with a lead-off solo shot just over the 390 sign in center for a 1-0 lead.

The Falcons would add a pair of runs in the seventh as well with a single by Eric Shoemaker to bring Zack Pou home for a 2-0 lead. An infield miscue led to the second run of the inning as Pfeiffer took a 3-0 lead.

North Georgia had a chance in the bottom of the seventh with two-outs and two-on for Davy Wallach who ran the count full before swinging through a Jonathan Mc Daniel fastball to end the inning and strand a pair of runners.

Pfeiffer added another run in the eighth and threatened to break the game open, but Caleb Copeland pulled the Saints out of a bases loaded one-out situation to hold the Pfeiffer lead to four.

Flanigan hit a three-run home run to bring the Saints to within a run at 3-4.

The Falcons sent Andrew Oliver to the mound in the ninth and he struck out the side give Pfeiffer a 4-3 series opening win.

Jonathan McDaniel picked up the win in 7.0 inning of work. McDaniel allowed nine hits while also striking out nine North Georgia batters.

Pfeiffer will return to action tomorrow afternoon at 1:00 p.m. for game two of the three game series against North Georgia.
