Arkansas-Pine Bluff 8, Murray State 7

racers baseb4 300MURRAY, Ky. (5/1/13) – The Murray State baseball team suffered yet another ninth-inning heartbreaker Tuesday afternoon as Arkansas-Pine Bluff scored three runs to walk off with an 8-7 victory in the first game of a two-game series at the Tori Hunter Baseball Complex.
 
Trailing by two heading into the bottom of the ninth, the Golden Lions loaded the bases with no outs. A balk was called on the next batter, but the ball got away from the catcher and allowed a second runner to score from second. An intentional walk and a base hit loaded the bases, and Jacob Whitney drew a walk to plate the winning run.
 
The Breds (17-27) got off to a quick start in the first inning as Ty Stetson singled and Brandon Elliott doubled. Brandon Eggenschwiler drove in both runners with a bloop single down the left-field line.
 
The Golden Lions (18-26) answered back in the home-half of the first with four base hits. Warren Stehn and Kirby Campbell each drove in a run with their singles.
 
MSU regained the lead in the fourth as Noah Zipko and Rick Linton singled to start the inning. Taylor Mathews advanced both runners with a sacrifice bunt and Paul Ritzheimer walked to load the bases. Stetson followed by delivering a double just inside the bag at first to plate all three runners.
 
UAPB (18-26) got single runs in the 4th and 5th innings to pull within one run at 5-4. But, the Breds had another big hit in them as Zipko singled and Linton was hit by a pitch. Mathews followed with a triple into the right-field corner to score both runners.
 
The Golden Lions got one of the runs back in the seventh as a throwing error on a stolen base allowed the unearned run to score.
 
Andrew Bramley (1-3) took the loss after allowing three runs without retiring a batter. Stanten Jones (5-5) picked up the victory after allowing one hit and striking out five over 2.1 innings.
 
Stetson went 2-for-4 with three RBIs in extending his hit streak to 18 games. Eggenschwiler went 3-for-5 with a pair of RBIs, while Linton went 3-for-3 with a walk and a hit by pitch. Elliott and Zipko each added two hits.
