Fisher lifts Towson past UNC Wilmington in CAAs
Third baseman Zach Fisher homered twice and drove in a career-high six runs to lead fourth-seeded Towson to a 13-11 victory over top-seeded UNC Wilmington on Thursday in the CAA baseball tournament in Harrisonburg, Va. The Tigers (27-28) will face either William & Mary or James Madison in the winners' bracket at noon today, while the Seahawks (37-20) will play an elimination game at 3:30 p.m. today. Fisher hit a grand slam in the sixth that put Towson ahead to stay and then added a two-run shot in the eighth that proved to be the difference in the game. He has three home runs in two games of the tournament after not hitting a homer during the regular season. Also contributing to the 15-hit attack for the Tigers were shortstop Hunter Bennett, who was 3-for-4 with three runs scored, and Peter Bowles, who was 2-for-5 with a homer and two RBIs.
