from staff reports

   ATHENS -- Saturday's Appalachian Athletic Conference doubleheader between Milligan and Tennessee Wesleyan proved to be a drawn out affair, with both games going into extra innings.
   After the Buffaloes captured a 3-2, 10-inning victory in Game 1, the Bulldogs responded by winning a 7-6, eight-inning game.
   In the first contest, Milligan (18-6, 32-18) tallied all three of its runs on leadoff solo homers, with Kory Kinnear connecting in the fifth, Dustin Price in the seventh and Brian Miller in the 10th.
   The three players had two hits apiece to pace the Buff attack. Todd Speas pitched 1/3 of an inning for the victory, and Nathan Chandler worked a save.
   Milligan got off to a blazing start in Game 2, scoring five runs in the top of the first, highlighted by a two-run homer from Price.
   However, Wesleyan batted its way back, tying the contest at six with two runs in the bottom of the seventh.
   David Rusaw led the Buffalo bats with a 3-for-4 effort, followed by a 2-for-4 showing by Nathan Meade.
   Milligan concludes its three-game series at Wesleyan this afternoon, and ends the season by hosting Union College (Ky.) on May 1 and 2.
