Pitt State Splits One-Run Games With SBU Friday

Updated:

PITTSBURG — Ryan Hintze limited Southwest Baptist to just a single run and Jeremy Graves belted a solo home run in the eighth inning to lift Pitt State to a 2-1 victory and salvage a split against the visiting Bearcats Friday (Mar. 25).

Hintze (2-2) scattered five hits and issued five walks and a pair of hit batsmen, but he fanned seven batters as well on the afternoon.

Ian Robinson's sacrifice fly brought home Brian Dean with the first run of the game in the fifth inning for Pitt State (9-11, 5-11 MIAA). Deal doubled down the left field line to lead off the frame.

SBU (4-12, 3-11 MIAA) loaded the bases in the ninth against Hintze but managed to plate just a solitary run on an RBI grounder by Niko Salidis. The Bearcats stranded 13 base runners in the contest.

Mike Nielebeck threw six innings for SBU, allowing one earned run and striking out three batters.

In game one, SBU scored the go-ahead run in the sixth inning thanks to a Pitt State fielding error as the Bearcats claimed a 4-3 victory over the Gorillas.

Chase Barnes staked Pitt State to an early 2-0 lead with a first-inning home run, but SBU countered with two runs in the second inning.

The Bearcats made it 3-2 in the third inning, but the Gorillas knotted the score in the fourth on Evan Thomas' RBI grounder.

The two teams will close out the MIAA weekend series with a 1 p.m. doubleheader Saturday (Mar. 26).
