Memphis 5, Murray State 0

murray baseball 300MURRAY, Ky. (4/17/13) – Sheldon Baxter was impressive in his first career start as he allowed just four earned runs over six innings as Murray State fell, 5-0, to Memphis Tuesday evening at FedEx Park. The loss marked the first time the Breds have been shut out in 101 games, dating back to May 3, 2011.
 
Baxter (1-4) threw a career-long six innings, allowing 11 hits and striking out one. Despite allowing five runs, Baxter was able to work out of a bases-load jam in the fourth.
 
The Tigers (24-14) got on the board in the second inning with a leadoff home run to left field off the bat of Drew Griffin.
 
The bottom of the third inning saw the Tigers extend their lead as they put two on with two outs. Tucker Tubbs plated one run with a single to center field, and Griffin followed with a run-scoring base hit through the left side.
 
MEM strung together three hits in the fifth to push across their fourth run of the game. Jake Little was the final hit, driving in Griffin from second base. A wild pitch and a throwing error in the sixth inning pushed across the fifth run of the game for the Tigers.
 
The Breds (13-23) offense was led by Nick Paradossi who went 2-for-2 and was hit by a pitch. He also picked off a runner and threw out another attempting to steal. Ty Stetson delivered a single in the eighth inning to extend his hit streak to eight games.
 
Dylan Toscano (2-0) earned the victory after allowing just one hit over five shutout innings.
