Game 7 - Cumberland 8 - Bryan 1

KINGSPORT, Tenn. - Third-seeded Cumberland (Tenn.) opened up a 6-1 lead in the sixth inning, and never looked back, on their way to an 8-1 victory over fourth-seeded Bryan (Tenn.) on Wednesday morning at the 2014 NAIA Baseball National Championship Opening Round - Kingsport Bracket.

With the win, the Bulldogs (now 42-19 on the year) move onto the bracket Championship Game later this afternoon against top-seed Missouri Baptist. Bryan ends their 2014 season with the loss, finishing with a 35-28 overall mark. 

After taking a 1-0 lead in the third, Cumberland saw Bryan fight back and score a run in the top of the fifth to knot the game up at 1-1. But, in the bottom of the frame the Bulldogs took the lead back on a two-run home run by Josciel Veras to go up 3-1.

In the sixth, Cumberland put the game away with three runs, then added on two more insurance runs in the eighth to open a seven run lead going into the final inning. The deficit was too much for Bryan to come back from, as the Bulldogs coasted to a victory.

Overall, Ricky Coleman led the Bulldogs, going 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored. Meanwhile, both Veras and Sam Lind notched three RBI each in the win, smacking two hits, apiece, as well.

On the mound, Cumberland starter Kevin P. Greene tossed a complete game, allowing a run on eight hits, while striking out four, pushing his record to 9-1 on the year with the victory.

For Bryan, Cody Rhinehart led the way, going 2-for-4 with a run scored.
