DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Bethune-Cookman came back from a 4-3 deficit with three runs in the eighth inning as the Wildcats downed visiting Harvard by a score of 6-4 on Thursday evening.

All three runs in the eighth were unearned as errors continue to hurt the Crimson (1-9) on its southern swing.

Harvard, which was limited to six hits on the day got an RBI double from J.T. Tomes and an RBI single from Jake McGuiggan while Mike Martin added a sacrifice fly as part of a three-run third inning.

Freshman Matt Timoney made his first career start and threw well, locating the ball all night in a solid 6.2 innings of work. He scattered seven hits and two earned runs while striking out four. Zack Olson struck out three in 1.1 relief innings and deserved a better fate in the final inning.

Anthony Stokes, who hurt the Crimson in the three-game series, had three hits as did Juan Pizarro.
