Hornets Sweep Gorillas in MIAA Doubleheader

Updated:

EMPORIA, Kan. — The Emporia State University baseball team capitalized on a six-run sixth inning to rally from a 6-4 deficit to defeat Pittsburg State University 10-6 in game one of a doubleheader Wednesday (Mar. 20). The Hornets used that momentum to claim a 5-2 victory in the nightcap.

The losses drop the Gorillas to 11-8 overall and 8-7 in MIAA play, while ESU improves to 12-12 overall and 10-9 in conference action.

Pitt State scored two runs in the third inning and four more in the fourth to build a 6-2 lead against the Hornets in the opener, but the Gorillas were unable to hold the lead down the stretch.

James Fitzgearalds (1-1) gave up five hits and hit three batters in the pivotal sixth inning. Eric Hansen allowed six hits, four runs, two earned in 4 1/3 innings of work for the Gorillas.

Tory Stoffregen paced the offense going 2-for-3 with a double, two runs scored and two RBI.

In game two, Hornet pitchers limited Pitt State to five hits and two unearned runs on Stoffregen's two-out double in the eighth.

Matt Stalcup (2-2) was charged with the loss. He allowed five runs and eight hits while going the distance for the Gorillas.

Pitt State will travel to Hays, Kan., Thursday (Mar. 21) to open a three-game MIAA series against Fort Hays State. The Gorillas and Tigers will play a doubleheader starting at 2 p.m. (CDT) then wrap up the series with a single game Friday (Mar. 22) at 1 p.m.
