Gorillas Sweep Bearcats; Reach Home Milestone

Updated:

PITTSBURG -- The Pitt State baseball team got a pair of strong starting pitching performances as the Gorillas swept visiting Southwest Baptist, 6-2 and 4-3, in a home doubleheader Monday (Mar. 28).

Pitt State (11-11, 7-11 MIAA) notched the program's 300th all-time win at Al Ortolani Field in game one. The Gorillas are now 301-174 in 16 seasons at the on-campus facility.

Ryan Sorell (2-3) scattered seven hits over 4 2/3 scoreless innings in the opener. He walked three batters and recorded four strikeouts.

The Gorillas plated a pair of runs in the second, third and fifth innings to build a 6-0 lead.

Ryan Reddick led Pitt State's nine-hit attack, going 3-for-3 with two RBIs, while Chase Barnes went 2-for-3 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI.

In the nightcap, pinch hitter Evan Thomas led off the ninth inning with a double and scored from third on the second of two wild pitches from relief pitcher Niko Salidas to give the Gorillas the 4-3 win.

SBU (4-14, 3-13 MIAA) plated three runs in the fifth inning to overcome an early 2-0 deficit, but Pitt State knotted the game at 3-3 on Jason Graves' run-scoring single in the sixth.

Scott Brady (2-2) tossed a complete-game gem. He scattered nine hits, walked one and fanned three batters, allowed two earned runs.

Both squads committed three fielding errors in the contest.

Taylor Sibala had two of Pitt State's seven hits.

The Gorillas will return to action Friday (Apr. 1) opening a four-game MIAA weekend series against Fort Hays State with a single game at 6 p.m. (CDT).
