Gorillas Split With Bulldogs on Senior Day

Updated:

PITTSBURG - Ryan Hintze held Truman to one unearned run in 5.0 innings and Pittsburg State (17-23, 13-23 MIAA) split their doubleheader against the Bulldogs (16-24, 15-21 MIAA) on Saturday (April 23).

In the opener, senior Ryan Hintze (3-5) held the Bulldogs to one unearned run in 5.0 innings and the Gorillas went on to win 7-3.

Jeremy Graves scored Brian Dean in the bottom of the first on a fielder's choice, and the score held until the top of the fourth when Truman plated a run even up the scoreboard.

Pitt State countered in the bottom of the fourth, however, batting around and scoring four runs on six singles in the frame. The Gorillas added two more runs in the fifth, then held off a late two-run rally by Truman to hold on for the victory.

Dean (2-3, 1 run, 1 RBI), Jeremy Filer (2-2, 1 run), and Matt Garcia (2-3, 3 RBI) led the way offensively for PSU.

Later in game two, Truman broke open a tie game in the ninth inning with five hits to win, 8-3.

With the exception of the third inning, where TSU scored 3 runs and PSU scored 1, the offenses were silent throughout most of the game.

Pitt State evened the game up with runs in the seventh and eighth innings, but Truman responded with five runs in the top of the ninth to secure the victory.

Starter Alex Schell allowed six runs in 8 1/3 innings with eight strikeouts.

The Gorillas will return to action Monday (Apr. 25) with a nine-inning game against Tabor College at 3 p.m.
