Gorillas Salvage Split With Huge Inning vs. Blue Tigers

Updated:

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- The Pitt State baseball team salvaged a split in an MIAA doubleheader Sunday (Mar. 20) by exploding for 16 runs in the seventh inning of game two against Lincoln.

The Blue Tigers held the Gorillas in check in a 4-1 victory in the opener Sunday.

Pitt State (7-10, 4-10 MIAA) logged 12 hits including three home runs in the pivotal inning as the Gorillas rallied from an 8-3 deficit against Lincoln (5-7, 5-7 MIAA) to avoid a four-game sweep at the hands of the Blue Tigers.

Pitt State dropped a 9-7 decision to Lincoln to start the day, competing a suspended game from Saturday. The Gorillas and Blue Tigers had that game halted following the top of the eighth inning with Pitt State trailing 6-3.

Jason Graves went 3-for-5 with six RBIs in the nightcap Sunday, including a grandslam in Pitt State's big seventh inning. Chase Barnes also went 2-for-4 with four RBIs, while Ryan Reddick went 2-for-5 with three RBIs.

Pitt State will return to action Tuesday (Mar. 22) when the Gorillas travel to Lindsborg, Kan., to face Bethany in a non-conference tilt.
