Rebounding from having to forfeit 12 victories, the BCC baseball team swept Lakeland Community College in a three-game weekend series.

The Dolphins (8-17) completed the series with a 4-3 victory in nine innings Sunday afternoon at West Brunswick High School. BCC won the game when Daniel Terry was hit by a pitch with two outs and the bases loaded in the ninth.

The inning began with Chris Eason reaching on an error and T.J. Overman reaching on a bunt. A sacrifice bunt by Jeremy King moved the runners to third and second. Caleb Hall was intentionally walked, loading the bases. With two outs, Terry was hit by a pitch, forcing in the winning run.

BCC trailed 3-0 in the seventh but back-to-back doubles by Terry and Trey Euverard drove in a run. After a wild pitch, Eddie George drove in a run with a sacrifice fly. BCC scored the tying run after two batters were hit a pitch, Overman walked and King walked.

David Aldridge was the winning pitcher. He threw three innings, giving up no runs and three hits. He walked three and struck out two.

Travis Bradley started and pitched six innings, giving up three runs and seven hits. He walked one and struck out 10.
