CENTRAL, SC - The Montreat College baseball team kicked off the Jason Beck era in fine fashion, bouncing back from a close opening season game to sweep the Saturday double-header against Southern Wesleyan over the weekend.

The Cavaliers (2-1) found themselves in a close contest in the season opener on Friday. SWU broke a 2-2 tie with a run in the bottom of the eighth inning and held on for a 3-2 win over Montreat. The Cavaliers got RBI from Nick Bray (SR/Alpharetta, GA) and Danny Fernandez (SO/Miami, FL) and a solid pitching effort from Braeden Daniels (SO/Statesville, NC), who gave up one earned run over four innings, Cole Yoder (SR/Auburndale, FL) (0-1) took the loss after giving up two earned runs over four innings.

In the first game on Saturday, the Montreat bats woke up as they exploded for 15 hits in a 17-1 win. The offensive attack was balanced as 11 Cavaliers got hits with 10 players coming through with RBI. Ricardo DeArmas (JR/Miami, FL) went 2-2 with a pair of doubles while Montreat also got two-hit efforts from Robert Hernandez (SO/Miami, FL), Grayson Snipes (SR/Lancaster, SC), and Bradley Oakes (SR/Asheville, NC). Mason Biddix (SO/Granite Falls, NC) collected 2 RBI via a pinch-hit double and Daniel Collins (SO/Guyton, GA) (1-0) picked up the win after giving up only 3 hits and 1 earned run over 5 innings pitched while striking out 5 SWU batters.

In the final game of the series, Montreat picked up a 1-0 lead after the first inning and used runs in the 7th and 9th innings to seal a 4-1 victory. Robert Hernandez had a great all-around game going 2-2 while scoring 3 runs and stealing 4 bases. Bradley Oakes went 2-3 with a triple and RBI while Ricardo DeArmas and Nick Bray also drove in runs. Andres Cancio (SR/Orlando, FL) (1-0) was tremendous on the mound, giving up only 4 hits and 1 earned run over 8 innings while collecting 6 strikeouts.

Montreat, NC-  Athletic Director Jose Larios has announced the hiring of Coach Jason Beck as the head baseball coach at Montreat College. Beck recently led the Fire of Southeastern University for the past 12 seasons.

 

"I'm really appreciative of the process we went through to search and select our next head baseball coach," said Larios. "We had some really gifted candidates, though Coach Beck's head coaching longevity, academic emphasis, Christian leadership, and success on the diamond really set him apart."

 

Coach Beck will take over the baseball program that finished 15-38 last season.
