Baseball Gorillas, Lions to Meet at Joplin Tuesday


PITTSBURG — The Pitt State baseball team will travel to Joplin, Mo., Tuesday (Apr. 12) to face Missouri Southern. The two teams will face one another in a doubleheader beginning at 3 p.m. (CDT) at Joe Becker Stadium.

The Gorillas enter the action 13-17 overall and 9-17 in the MIAA. Pitt State will seek to halt a three-game losing streak. The Gorillas dropped the final three games in a four-game MIAA weekend series to Missouri Western after taking the series opener Friday.

The Lions are 14-18 overall and 10-16 in MIAA play. Southern was swept in a four-game MIAA weekend series by Emporia State at Emporia, Kan.

Sophomore designated hitter Ryan Reddick leads the Gorillas with a .419 batting. Junior outfielder is batting .374 with a team-leading eight doubles, six home runs and 33 RBIs.

Pitt State and Southern split a pair of games in Pittsburg on Mar. 16. The Gorillas claimed a 6-0 victory, before the Lions countered with a 17-10 decision that day.
