Brand leads USF past Stetson
The depth of the USF baseball team was tested because of injuries to key players Tuesday night, and the Bulls passed that test with a 9-2 win over Stetson.
With starters out with injuries, USF (19-8) got production off the bench in the win. Jeremy Brand played third base in place of junior Jeff Baisley, and despite a defensive error, he made the most of his appearances at the plate with a home run and a triple. Brand finished 2-for-4 with three runs scored and four RBIs.
With USF up a run in the third, Brand struck out but reached on a wild pitch. He scored on a Bryan Hierlmeier single up the middle to give the Bulls a 2-0 lead.
Then in the fourth, Brand hit his third home run of the year, a three-run blast, making the score 5-1. His fourth RBI of the game came in the ninth when he tripled in Travis Brown.
Chase Lirette (4-0) got his fourth win of the season in only his second start. He gave up one unearned run on five hits while striking out five in seven innings. Lirette is now 2-0 as a starter.
Devin Ivany had his 12-game hitting streak snapped after going 0-3 with a walk and one run scored.
The Bulls have beaten Stetson (17-11) twice in Deland this season.

Bulls battle with ECU in OT win
Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
