Southern Miss pitcher Walker Powell had a shaky homecoming. Dallas Baptist hit homers in the 1st and 2nd off the Fayetteville native to take an early lead. Matthew Guidry tied the game with a 2-run blast.
But DBU scored in the first 5 innings to eliminate USM 9-4. Five different Patriots homered in the victory.
Make it 8-2, five homers by five different Dallas-Baptist players. https://t.co/Xkxb5KpWj8— Taylor Curet (@TaylorCuret) June 3, 2018
