Brentwood native Andy Crews and tourney MVP Adam Carey served UT with its sixth SEC tennis title by defeating Auburn 4-1. Crews and teammate Mark Dietrich earned a doubles point and Carey closed out the effort with a singles win. The Vols are now 19-6 on the season and eyeing the NCAA title. As runners-up in 2001, Tennessee appears poised and talented enough to volley themselves to a championship. ♦ Dewon Brazelton, the former MTSU star and top draft pick of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, has struggled while pitching for Orlando in class AA ball. In four starts, Brazelton is 0-1 with a 3.43 ERA and has allowed nearly a hit per inning. On the bright side, however, Brazelton fanned 20 batters in four outings and his fast ball continues to overpower opponents. With the Devil Rays already six games out of first place, Brazelton looks to be called up to The Show this season. ♦ Things come in threes. The Atlanta Braves Rafael Furcal went three for three, with three three- baggers, 810 frantic feet if you’re scoring at home, in a 4-2 defeat of the Florida Marlins. Furcal became the first Brave to achieve the feat since Danny O’Connell ran wild some 46 years ago. While tying the major league record, Furcal also scored three runs and moved Atlanta within a game of the division lead. Perhaps even more bizarre than Furcal’s stat line is the ugly fact that the Braves are chasing the first-place Expos.
