Jeremy Dowdy went 4-for-5 and hit his third home run of the season in Sunday's 6-3 loss to Furman.

BOONE, N.C. - Appalachian State University baseball never recovered from Furman's three-run third inning in a 6-3 loss to the Paladins on Sunday afternoon at Beaver Field at Jim and Bettie Smith Stadium.

Despite the setback, Appalachian (17-7-1, 4-7-1 SoCon) took the weekend's three-game Southern Conference series from Furman (9-19, 3-9 SoCon), two games to one, marking the fourth-straight year that ASU triumphed over FU in the clubs' regular-season series.

The Paladins jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the third on Dylan Cole's RBI double and Will Miller's two-run single.

The Mountaineers drew within a run twice by scoring once in the fourth and twice in the fifth, but each time, Furman matched ASU's scoring in its next at-bat.

As was the case in last weekend's three-game sweep at first-place The Citadel, stranded base-runners plagued Appalachian in Sunday's loss. The Mountaineers left 13 men on base on Sunday, including nine in scoring position.

Jeremy Dowdy led ASU in the loss by going a career-best 4-for-5 with two RBI and his third home run of the season. Hector Crespo and Wes Hobson added two hits apiece to the Mountaineers' 12-hit offensive output.

Cole and Miller paced Furman, each going 2-for-4 with two RBI.

Paladin starter Daniel Stallsmith surrendered 11 hits and four walks over six innings but allowed just three runs to move to 2-0 on the season. ASU's Ryan Arrowood suffered the loss after giving up four runs on seven hits in 4.1 innings of work.

Appalachian continues its nine-game homestand on Tuesday when it hosts North Carolina A&T for a doubleheader at Smith Stadium. The twinbill starts at 2 p.m.
