racers baseb4 300MURRAY, Ky. (4/23/14) — Murray State put together a big rally in the ninth inning, but it was not enough as the Bred fell, 6-3, to Evansville Tuesday evening at Braun Stadium.

Trailing 6-1 going to the ninth, Tyler Lawrence started the inning with a single up the middle. Clay Kelly was hit by a pitch and Luke Daugherty walked. Matt McGowan delivered a chopper through the left side to score Lawrence and keep the rally going. The rally would stop there as the second run scored on a double play. A strikeout would end the game.

The Purple Aces (25-14) got on the board in the second inning with the help of a fielding error. With a runners on the corners and one out after the error, Shain Showers beat out a potential double-play ball to score a run.

The Breds (17-21) tied the game in the fifth as Taylor Mathews beat out an infield single and took second on the throwing error. Ty Stetson moved Mathews to third with a single to left, and Anthony Bayus delivered a sacrifice fly to right field.

A leadoff hit by pitch came back to haunt the Breds in the home-half of the inning. With two outs and two on, Kyle Pollock ripped a triple off the fence in right field to score both runners. Boomer Synek then drove in Pollock with a single up the middle.

The sixth inning saw more back luck for MSU as a routine double-play ball turned into a double after the ball took a bad hop off the dirt. Jake Mahon took advantage with an RBI groundout to third. Eric McKibban extended the lead with an RBI triple to right field in the seventh.

Kyle Cornett did not factor in the decision, despite his best start of the season. The left allowed one unearned run on three hits over four innings. He struck out one and walked one.

Andrew Bramley (1-3) took the loss after giving up three runs on two hits over two-thirds of an inning. Tyler Miller (3-1) picked up the victory in relief, allowing one unearned run on two hits over one inning.

The Breds return to the diamond Friday afternoon as they open a three-game series against Tennessee Tech.

The series is set to get underway 3 p.m. at Reagan Field.
