JACKSON, Tenn. - 5/2/2007 - The Union University Bulldogs stayed alive in the 2007 TranSouth Conference Baseball Tournament with a 3-0 win over Freed-Hardeman University. Union improved to 33-17 on the season, while Freed-Hardeman dropped to 29-26.
Union was led by the former Humboldt duo of Judson Powers and James Brasfield. Both Powers and Brasfield are juniors at Union, after having played togther at Humboldt High School. Powers led Union offensively as his 3-run homer to the deepest part of Union's Fesmire Field, a 420-foot shot, gave the Bulldogs their only three runs. However, that would be plenty as Brasfield scattered seven hits over his complete game shutout to improved to 6-3 on the season.
Powers was 3-for-5 in the game with three RBI's. Munford native Zach Lowery was 3-of-4 on the day for Union.
