Game 2 - Cumberland 8 - Brewton-Parker 3

KINGSPORT, Tenn. - No. 3 seed Cumberland (Tenn.) broke open a close game with five runs in the fifth inning, and never looked back, as the Bulldogs upended No. 2 seed Brewton-Parker (Ga.), 8-3, on Monday afternoon in the second game of the  2014 NAIA Baseball National Championship Opening Round - Kingsport Bracket.

With the win, Cumberland (41-18) moves on to play either Missouri Baptist or Culver Stockton (Mo.) on Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. Brewton-Parker (32-12) slips into an elimination game on Tuesday with the loss, and will play fourth-seeded Bryan (Tenn.) at 11 a.m.

After opening a 1-0 lead in the top of the third, Cumberland saw Brewton-Parker score three unearned runs in the bottom of the fourth, as the Barons grabbed a 3-1 lead after four innings.

But, in the fifth, the Bulldogs attacked, scoring five runs to take the lead for good at 6-3. In the frame, Brady North had the big hit for Cumberland, smashing a three-run home run with two outs to break a 3-3 tie.

From there, the Bulldogs tacked on two more runs in the seventh, and coasted to a five-run victory, as starting pitcher Luke Collier (8-3) earned the complete game victory, striking out five, while not allowing a run to cross over the final five innings of action.

At the plate, Ricky Coleman led the way for Cumberland, going 2-for-4 with two runs scored and two RBI, while Chris Hall was also 2-for-4 with two runs scored. 

For Brewton-Parker, Brandon Bynam led the way at the dish, going 3-for-5. On the mound, Barons starting pitcher Kory Brooker (8-3) took the loss.
