Gorilla Baseball Closes Door in Game Two Against RiverHawks

Updated:

PITTSBURG -- The Pittsburg State University baseball team exploded for 12 runs and 16 hits to claim a 12-3 victory over Northeastern State University in game two of an MIAA doubleheader Thursday (Apr. 4) after the Gorillas failed to close the door on the RiverHawks in game one.

NSU plated five runs, all with two outs, in the top of the seventh in the opener to rally from a 5-1 deficit and defeat Pitt State, 6-5.

With the split, the Gorillas moved to 18-11 overall and 15-10 in MIAA play. NSU, which snapped Pitt State's five-game winning streak in game one, moved to 16-14 overall (16-14 MIAA) following the day's action.

Ryan Bilovesky and Brad Foss each homered for the Gorillas in game two, while Ryan Ventura and Austin Lastimado each drove in three runs. Cody Ball went 2-for-3 with four runs scored in the contest.

Eric Hansen (3-1) scattered seven hits over seven innings of work, allowing just one run and fanning four batters.

In game one, Pitt State scored runs in the first, third, fourth, fifth and sixth frames in building a 5-1 lead against NSU.

The RiverHawks rallied in the seventh thanks to three hit batters and a pair of walks and eventually a pair of hits.

Pitt State will return to action Saturday (Apr.. 6) when the Gorillas open a three-game MIAA series against 12th-ranked Missouri Western State University.
