Humboldt Duo Leads Union Past Freed-Hardeman in TranSouth Baseball Tournament

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.

Freed-Hardeman was led by Jarrett Jones with two hits. Tyler Franklin went the distance in the loss, allowing 10 hits and three runs, two of which were earned.

Union advances to day three of the tournament when they face the loser of the Lyon/Crichton game at 3:30 pm on Thursday.
