Gorillas Close Out Season With Sweep of Ichabods

Updated:

TOPEKA, Kan. — The Pitt State baseball team closed out the 2011 season with a pair of solid pitching performances as the Gorillas swept Washburn, 8-3 and 5-1, Sunday (May 8) at Falley Field.

The twin victories helped Pitt State end the season with a 20-30 overall record and a 16-28 MIAA mark. Washburn, which dropped three of four games in the series to the Gorillas, ended the regular season 22-27 overall and 20-23 in MIAA play.

The Ichabods edged Missouri Southern (24-26, 20-24) by one game in the loss column for the No. 6 and final seed for the MIAA Postseason Tournament.

In Sunday's opener, Pitt State starter Ryan Hintze (4-6) took a shutout bid into the seventh inning, before surrendering three runs in the final frame. Scott Brady got the final out to preserve the win for the Gorillas.

The Gorillas broke open a 1-0 game with a five-run fourth inning. Pitt State capitalized on four Washburn errors in the contest.

Taylor Sibala and Ryan Bilovesky had a pair of RBIs apiece, while Jason Graves and Evan Thomas had two hits apiece in the contest.

In game two, Pitt State starter Ryan Sorell (5-4) tossed a complete-game in the 5-1 victory. Sorell allowed just five hits in the contest. He walked none and fanned eight batters.

Sibala ended his career going 3-for-5 with an RBI, while Jason Graves scored a pair of runs. Matt Garcia also had a pair of hits in four at-bats.
