Southern baseball splits a double-header at Pittsburg State

Updated:

PITTSBURG -- The Missouri Southern baseball team split a double-header today at Pittsburg State, winning the opener, 11-1, but falling in the nightcap 2-0. 

The Lions (21-15, 14-14 MIAA) received a stellar pitching performance from game one starter Cody Griebling, as the senior went the distance, allowing just one run on six hits, while striking out six and walking none to pick up his sixth win of the season. 

Southern started strong in the opener, scoring seven runs in the top of the first. Tee Helsel had a big hit in the inning with a bases clearing double off the wall in left field. Dane Kolkmeyer and Jesse Kinzey followed that up with RBI singles, while Luke Acosta finished the scoring with at two-RBI double as the Lions batted around in the first. 

Pitt (12-19, 10-14 MIAA) scored a single run in the fifth, but the Lions added a run in each of the final four innings to put away the game. 

Helsel went 3-5 with three RBIs and two runs scored in game one. Kolkmeyer was 2-4 with a run and three RBIs, while Acosta had a pair of hits and two RBIs. Thomas Wilson had two hits and a pair of runs scored, while driving in another. 

Eric Hanson (1-1) limited the Lions to just three hits in five innings of work in the nightcap. George Brandecker worked two innings of one-hit relief and PSU ace Matt Stalcup took the mound on two days rest to nail down the win and notch a save with two hitless innings.

Pitt State  snapped a five-game skid by plating a pair of runs in the fifth inning against Southern.

Luke Bordewick had a run-scoring single and Evan Thomas delivered a sacrifice fly in the frame.
