Gorillas Drop Pair of One-Run Decisions to Bearcats

Updated:

BOLIVAR, Mo. — The Pitt State baseball team dropped a pair of one-run decision to Southwest Baptist Friday (Mar. 30), falling 3-2 and 13-12 to the Bearcats at Dodson Field.

The twin losses dropped the Gorillas to 10-13 overall and 8-8 in MIAA action, while SBU improved to 13-12-1 overall and 8-8 in the MIAA. The Bearcats halted a nine-game losing streak with the victory in game one.

The Bearcats managed just four hits in the opener Friday, but SBU made them count by plating three runs. The Bearcats scored the go-ahead run off PSU reliever Cody Wren (1-1) in the sixth inning.

In the nightcap, PSU jumped out to a 4-2 lead only to the SBU battle back for an 8-4 advantage. The Gorillas responded with a five-run seventh inning for a 9-8 lead and the two squads traded runs down the stretch.

After PSU knotted the score at 12-12 in the top of the ninth, the Bearcats plated a run against reliever Matt Garcia (0-1) to earn the victory.

Ryan Ventura and Chase Barnes had three hits apiece to pace the Gorillas 17-hit attack. Barnes, who doubled twice, drove in three runs.

The two teams will complete their four-game MIAA series with a 1 p.m. (CDT) doubleheader Saturday (Mar. 31).
