Carson-Newman won its seventh game of the season on a play so incredible it seems only Charlie Brown could pull it off.
Well, not that Charlie Brown at least.
Monday, Carson-Newman wrapped up its three-game series against No. 14 Northwood. The rubber-match was just about as exciting as you could hope for. With Carson-Newman ahead 7-4 in the top of the ninth, Northwood began to chip away, suddenly finding themselves down just one run with the tying run at second. Michael Karam roped one to right field that looked as if Northwood tied it up, but Carson-Newman’s Charlie Brown — yup, you read that right — had other plans.

Brown threw a perfect strike, nailing the runner at home, securing both the one-run victory and series win over a nationally-ranked team.
Finally, Charlie Brown walks off a winner.
