UC walks off losers
after 13th inning HR

Tradewater Pirates’ rightfielder Bo Bell knocked a three-run walk-off home run in the bottom of the 13th inning to lift his team over the Union City Greyhounds 6-3 on Thursday.
Bell’s blast came off Patrick Schatz, who up until that point had been great in relief of Drew Hayes.
Schatz pitched 61/3 innings with six strikeouts in relief of the McKenzie native and Vanderbilt product.
Meanwhile, Hayes struck out nine in the first six innings before his exit from the game.
At the plate, UC second baseman Cam Strang was 2-for-6 during the loss, while Ace Williams and Ryan O’Gara each had one ribbie.
The Greyhounds return to action this evening and Saturday at Tradewater.

President Bush hosts
national champ UT

KNOXVILLE (AP) — Winning an NCAA title comes with a bonus: meeting the president.
The national champion Tennessee Lady Volunteers were honored at a ceremony at the White House on Tuesday, where they shook hands and took photos with President Bush for the second time in as many years.
Bush acknowledged how hard it is to win a championship and said it was even more impressive to have a repeat performance.
The Lady Vols clinched the NCAA title in April with a 64-48 victory over Stanford. They were one of 20 championship teams from 13 states recognized during Tuesday’s ceremony.
The title was Tennessee’s eighth, and coach Pat Summitt has traveled with players to Washington to meet every president since Ronald Reagan.
Alberta Auguste presented the president with a basketball signed by the team members, two baseball caps and a windbreaker for first lady Laura Bush.
Four departed players — Candace Parker, Nicky Anosike, Shannon Bobbitt and Alexis Hornbuckle — were unable to attend the festivities because of WNBA games.
