Sibala's Game-Winning Hit Gives Pitt State Split vs. UNO

Updated:

PITTSBURG — Taylor Sibala delivered a two-out, two-run single in the bottom of the fifth inning to break a 4-4 tie and propel Pitt State to a 6-4 victory over Nebraska-Omaha in the second game of a doubleheader Saturday (Mar. 12).

The win helped the Gorillas salvage a split against the Mavs, who posted a 3-1 extra-inning victory in the first game at Al Ortolani Field.

Pitt State (5-6, 2-6 MIAA) scored two runs in the second, third and fifth innings to earn a series split against UNO (7-4, 5-3 MIAA).

Ryan Hintze (1-1) earned a complete-game victory. He allowed just five hits and one earned run, walking two and striking out four batters.

The Gorillas capitalized on four UNO errors in the contest. Ryan Reddick collected a pair of hits, while Brian Dean went 1-for-1 with a pair of RBIs on a single and a bases loaded walk.

In game one, UNO plated a pair of runs in the eighth inning to break a 1-1 deadlock and pull out a 3-1 victory over Pitt State.

The Mavs got RBI singles by Jed Hanson and Colby McCord in the eighth to break through against Pitt State starter Alex Schell (0-1).

Schell scattered nine hits in 7 2/3 innings, working in and out of trouble against the Mavs.

Pitt State knocked UNO pitching for eight hits and the Gorillas drew six walks against Mavs starter Tom Schmidt, but Pitt State stranded 11 baserunners in the contest.

Chase Barnes was hit by pitch and scored on a failed pickoff attempt at first base by relief pitcher Matt Tew in the fifth inning for the Gorillas' lone run.

Pitt State will return to action Tuesday (Mar. 15) when the Gorillas host MIAA rival Missouri Southern in a 3 p.m. (CDT) doubleheader at Al Ortolani Field.
