Cowboys' Belza goes long again
A day after hitting three homers in a 10-6 win over Alabama, Belza blasted another one down the right-field line to give the Pokes a 1-0 lead over Clemson Regional top seed Clemson in the bottom of the seventh inning at Doug Kingsmore Stadium on Saturday night.
Cowboys designated hitter Mark Ginther followed Belza to the plate and blasted a towering homer to left-center to make the score 2-0.
Belza, a sophomore from the Cincinnati suburb of Loveland, Ohio, has equaled his previous career total of four homers in two games here.
Clemson starter Casey Harman had been virtually unhittable, allowing one hit in the first and retiring 12 batters in a row before Belza came to the plate.
