The Tusculum Pioneers are no strangers to winning. They have reeled off at least 30 wins in each of the past 13 seasons. This year would be no different, as they sit at 32-12 right atop the South Atlantic Conference with Catawba. They have gotten there this season behind solid pitching.

Junior Ethan Carpenter has made great strides from last season, as has junior lefty Zach Slagle. Despite strong seasons, neither have displayed the utter dominance that senior left-hander Placido Torres has.
