Press Release PSU:

Pittsburg State senior Tiffany Brown hit three of the nine Gorilla home runs in Pitt State's doubleheader sweep of Drury on Wednesday (April 16), but it was the first one that mattered most as she hit her 24th of the season, breaking the MIAA single season home run record. She now has 26 home runs this season and 55 for her career. Brown's final home run of the day was a two run shot that gave her her 71st RBI of the season, tying the Pitt State record.

Pitt State won both games by the eight-run rule, 11-2 in six innings, and 14-0 in five innings.

The Gorillas got two home runs from Brown and one each from McKenzie Rynard, Cheslyn Mitchell, Alex Perez and Kylie Guthier in game one. In game two, Brown and Mitchell each added another home run and Nease also hit one out.

In addition to the nine home runs, the Gorillas also hit three doubles, two by Perez in game one and one by Mitchell in game two. Perez was 3-for-3 in game one with all her hits for extra bases.

Pitt State tallied 25 runs on 30 hits and four Newman errors in the two games. All nine hitters got at least one hit between the two games.

Haleigh Sills earned the win in game one. She gave up two runs, neither of which were earned, and two hits. She walked two batters and struck out two in five innings of work. Her record improves to 5-6 on the season. Kylie Harpst pitched the final inning and sat the Panthers down in order, including a strikeout.

Sam Grove pitched 3.2 perfect innings in game two and scattered two hits in the final inning and a third to improve to 13-10 on the season. She struck out one batter and did not give up a walk.

The Gorillas will be off until April 25 and 26 when the team will wrap up the regular season with doubleheaders at Southwest Baptist and Central Missouri.

    Pittsburg State University baseball head coach Tom Myers can’t stop smiling. And he has good reason. Thanks to the generosity of several anonymous donors, the university is installing new turf on its baseball and softball fields. The summer project will provide a wall-to-wall AstroTurf brand synthetic turf on all playing surfaces, batting cages and bullpen areas. The turf will be similar to that currently in use at Carnie Smith Stadium and the Robert W.
