Spartanburg, S.C. (Mar. 10, 2002) - Wofford's Tony Carbone was 4-of-4 with three RBI to finish the weekend 9-of-10 at the plate as Wofford posted its first-ever three-game sweep of a Southern Conference series with a 12-4 victory over East Tennessee State this afternoon at Duncan Park in Spartanburg, S.C. The Terriers, in their fifth season of SoCon play, improve to 3-0 in the league and 13-6 overall. Leading 2-1 in the top of the fourth, ETSU (5-8, 0-3) increased its margin to 4-1 on a two-run double by Matt Traylor, who had three hits and three RBI on the day. However, the Terriers answered with four runs in the bottom of the inning to take a 5-4 lead. Steve Casey's two-run single up the middle gave the Terriers the lead for good. Casey totaled two hits and three RBI in the game. Chris Cotugno had a pair of run-scoring singles in the sixth inning as the Terriers batted around and broke the game open with seven runs. Wofford had five consecutive hits at one point, including a two-run Carbone single. Matt Lein had four hits while Blake Timanus added three to help key a 19-hit Wofford attack. Strat Stavrou also had two hits for the Terriers, giving him 183 in his career as he closes in on the Wofford career base hit record of 193 (Clay Griffin, 1985-88). Chad McGill (2-0) allowed four runs on seven hits in six innings to pick up the victory. He struck out three and walked three. Trevor Smith (1-1) took the loss for the Buccaneers, allowing five runs on nine hits while walking three and not striking out a batter in 3.1 innings.
