Murray State takes down Southern Miss 11-6

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Racers pitcher Tyler Beers threw eight innings, surrendered nine hits, six runs, all of them earned, but still managed to come away with the 11-6 win. The Golden Eagles (10-8) broke open a 3-3 tie ball game with a three-run bottom half of the fourth, but gave it right back in the fifth.

Murray State (9-9) scored five runs in the top have of the frame and never gave up another score the remainder of the ball game. Freshman Connor Barron commanded the plate for Southern Miss, going 3-for-4, with three runs and an RBI to his credit, while Racers first baseman Mike Kozlowski connected on three of five swings, drove in three and scored twice himself.

On the mound for Southern Miss, starter Jay Myrick pitched four innings, gave up three runs, all of them earned, on five hits while striking out three and walking five. Taking the loss for the black and gold was Chase Horn, who appeared in middle relief. He gave up four hits and surrendered all five runs in the disastrous fifth inning.

The Golden Eagles continue the series on Saturday March 17 from Pete Taylor Park, with first pitch scheduled for 2:00 pm. Fans are encouraged to wear green for St. Patrick's Day, while the team will dawn special green jerseys for the occasion as well.
