Milledgeville, GA – No. 27 Pfeiffer University fell to Georgia College & State University 10-9 on Wednesday afternoon thanks to a six run ninth for the Bobcats. The non-conference loss brings Pfeiffer’s overall record to 16-7-1, while the Bobcats improve to 14-6.
Pfeiffer scored early with two runs in the first. After consecutive walks to Eric Shoemaker (Huntersville, NC) and Will Davis (New London, NC), Ethan Marsh (Asheboro, NC) plated both with a two-out two run single to center. The Falcons added two more runs in the second when Josh Strickland (Liberty, NC) singled home brother Zack Strickland (Liberty, NC) and Myles Pearl (High Point, NC).
The Falcon lead grew to 5-0 when Jesse Dunn (Easley, SC) doubled with one-out in the fifth. Marsh brought him home with another RBI single. Davis and Dunn highlighted a four run sixth for Pfeiffer. Davis added a two-run RBI double to center and he was followed by Dunn who hit a mammoth homerun to left center.
The Bobcats responded as Buddy Elmore (Dallas) started the sixth with a solo home run. After a single by Steve Muoio (Rochester, NY) and a walk to Brett George (Decula, GA), Matt Pitts (Brunswick, GA.) ripped a double into the leftfield corner scoring two more. Chandler Snell (Loganville, GA) then capped the four-run inning with an RBI single.
In the ninth down 9-4, Derek Johns (Waynesville, GA) scored two with a single to left to get the Bobcats started. Muoio added another on single of his own. A George fielder’s choice plated another run, then senior Danny McCorkell (Wentzville, MO) singled home the game-tying run, setting up Snell’s game-ending fly.
Falcon shortstop Josh Strickland set the table well, finishing 3-for-5 with two RBI and a run. Catcher Jesse Dunn smacked a blast off the scoreboard in left center, going 2-for-5 with two runs and a pair of RBI. Centerfielder Ethan Marsh was 2-for-4 with three RBI.
GCSU’s Martin Dewald (Mannheim, Germany) tossed the final 1 2/3 innings, improving to 4-1 while fanning four and allowing just one single. Falcon closer Andrew Oliver (Cornelius, NC) (1-1) gave up three runs, with one earned over 2/3 of an inning in the loss.The Automated ScoreBook #27 Pfeiffer University at Georgia College Mar 11, 2009 at Millegeville, Ga.
