UNION FORCES "IF NECESSARY" GAME
PADUCAH, Ky. -- Cumberland dropped the opener but Max Kautz hit a grand slam, Keith Kirby tossed five shutout innings and Kris Miller added a two-run homer for insurance in the 2nd-ranked Bulldogs 9-5 triumph over Union Univ. Thursday to win the title in the 2010 McDonald's TranSouth Championships at Brooks Stadium.
Cumberland (50-9) lost the first game, 6-1, ending a 20-game winning streak for the Bulldogs, but the club bounced back with three early runs in the second game and Kautz belted a grand slam in the fifth inning to give CU a 7-0 lead.
Union (41-15) came back with five runs on six hits in the sixth inning, but Miller belted his fifth home run of the tournament, a two-run shot in the ninth, to give the Bulldogs some breathing room and the team's sixth conference tournament championship in eight seasons in the TranSouth.
Kirby (1-0) tossed five shutout innings in just his third start of the year before running into trouble in the sixth. He allowed five runs on 10 hits in 6.2 innings to pick up his first career victory.
Daniel Kern got out of a jam in the seventh as much with his glove as with his arm. With two runners on and two outs, Beau Baker lined a chopper up the middle that was headed for centerfield, but Kern got just enough of it with his glove that shortstop Sam Kika ran it down behind the bag and flipped to second base to end the threat.
Kern walked one in the eighth and allowed a leadoff single in the ninth, but earned his sixth save with two strikeouts in 2.1 innings.
Union starter Brad Davis (2-3) gave up nine runs on 16 hits but worked the whole game for a very depleted staff. He walked one and struck out five in 8.2 innings.
