Wingate's Tanner Forry blasts two home runs in the same inning in DII baseball debut

  Tanner Forry had two home runs and six RBI in a nine-run seventh for Wingate.

Welcome to DII baseball, Tanner Forry.

The Wingate Bulldogs won their season opener 18-5 over Concord. The Bulldogs were fueled by a nine-run seventh inning, highlighted by Tanner Forry's coming out party on the DII circuit. The JUCO junior transfer launched not one, but two home runs in that seventh inning. The first was a two-run blast, bringing Ty Andrus home. The second was a grand-slam, giving Forry six RBI in the inning.

They weren't merely home runs, either. Both were bombs as the right-handed slugger sent it well over the right-center wall both times.

Wingate has a double header on Saturday, February 3 against Concord again. What can Forry do in 18 innings in one day?
