KENTVILLE - The Acadia baseball club came from behind in a big way to top the Dalhousie Tigers 11-3 in university baseball action Sept. 16 at Memorial Park.

In their 2015 home opener, the Axemen fell behind 3-1 early, but exploded for nine runs in the sixth inning. Acadia batted around in the sixth, led by right fielder Mark McPhee’s two home runs and four RBI.

Shortstop Mark Matyas, an all-Canadian last season, added three RBI in the sixth to finish with four RBI in all.

On the mound, Andrew Chase, Sam Byers and Wes Harding combined to allow the Tigers just four hits. Harding ended up the winning pitcher.
