Riverhawks Rally to Down Gorillas, 8-7

Updated:

TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — Northeastern State plated four runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to rally from a 7-4 deficit and defeat Pitt State, 8-7, Wednesday (Mar. 7) at Rousey Field.

The Gorillas (5-4) scored four times in the third inning to turn a 4-1 deficit into a 5-4 deficit then added a pair of insurance runs in the seven, but the Riverhawks (9-7) mounted a late rally to win their fifth straight game.

Pitt State has an opportunity to tie the game or move in front in the ninth inning.

Matt Garcia and Ryan Reddick drew two-out walks and Adam Reed delivered a double down the left field line. Garcia raced home with what appeared to be the tying run but pinch runner Mitch Streeter was tagged out at third and it was ruled the out occured before Garcia reached the plate.

Garcia went 3-for-3 with a home run and two RBIs in the contest, while Chase Barnes collected a pair of hits and drove in three runs.

George Brandecker (1-1) was charged with the loss after allowing a run on two hits in the eighth.

Pitt State will return to action Saturday (Mar. 10) when the Gorillas host MIAA rival Washburn in a four-game weekend series. The two teams will play at 2 p.m. (CST) twinbill Saturday and then  a 12 Noon doubleheader Sunday (Mar. 11).
