Golden Eagles Fall 2-1 at Louisiana-Monroe

Press Release from SouthernMiss.com

MONROE, La. – Louisiana-Monroe needed just one inning to score its entire game total in a 2-1 victory over Southern Miss here Wednesday night at Warhawk Field.

Kameron Brunty and Jared Bales led the Golden Eagle nine-hit attack with two hits apiece.

It was Brunty that drove in the visitor's lone run in the first on an infield single.

Connor Barron led off the game with a short blooper to leftfield that ULM shortstop Jeremy Sy dropped, putting the freshman on second base. After a grounder to move Barron up a base, Brunty's single plated the Golden Eagles only run.

USM starter Andrew Pierce (0-1) held the Warhawks in check for the first five innings before surrendering a pair of runs in the sixth. Pierce ended his outing with two runs on six hits with two walks and four strikeouts over 5 1/3.

After a groundout, Joey Rapp singled and Corben Green doubled to put runners at second and third. Following an intentional walk, Taylor Abdalla singled home the tying run.

Logan Fiasco then drove in the go-ahead run after being hit by a pitch with the bases loaded by reliever Taylor Nunez.

ULM reliever Kendall Thamm (1-0) fanned seven and allowed just three hits over 3 2/3 innings to earn the victory. Wil Browning got the final out to garner his first save of the year.

The Golden Eagles return to action this Friday at home for the first of three games against Troy in a 6 p.m., contest.
