Jebavy, a junior-to-be from Columbia State Community College, went 1-for-4 with two RBIs, while Bryant, a senior-to-be from Middle Tennessee State, was also 1-for-4 with two RBIs.
“Now, they can relax and play the game,’’ Coleman said. “I’m sure they were a little anxious with this being their first game and in front of a good crowd. But, we brought them here for a reason — they are good players.’’
On the mound, Mac Lozer, a sophomore-to-be from Michigan, earned the victory with 2.2 innings of relief, striking out six and Trevor Sutton, a sophomore-to-be from Memphis, went 2.1 innings, allowing two earned runs.
“Our bullpen did a good job,’’ said Coleman, as right-handed starter Ben Braymer lasted just one inning. “There are some things we have to clean up with Ben. But those bullpen guys competed and gave us an opportunity to win this game.
“Getting those three new pitchers is good for pitching depth. When you are able to add three guys after six games, it’s great. And they all contributed.’’
Selesky, Olmstead and Keith Shumaker all led the Danville offensive attack with two hits, while Derek Harrington got the team’s first home run of the season in the third inning.
