Golden Eagle winning streak snapped; UAB downs Southern Miss 2-1

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WDAM) -

Tied at 1 apiece, the University of Alabama-Birmingham scored one on a bases-loaded walk, and escaped with a 2-1 win over the University of Southern Mississippi Thursday night. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak, and halted the momentum from last weekend's sweep over conference foe East Carolina.

Shortstop Ashley Graeter provided the only score of the night for the Golden Eagles (28-23, 12-10), coming in off a Blake Brown RBI. The score knotted the game at 1 in the top of the seventh inning. The Blazers (29-25, 9-13) first scored in the bottom of the fifth inning when first baseman John Frost hit a hard, low-lining RBI just inside third base and just out of the reach of third baseman Travis Creel.

Usual Friday starter, and Conference USA Pitcher of the Week, Andrew Pierce started for the black and gold. He didn't play a poor game, but didn't provide the eye-popping numbers fans are used to seeing on Fridays. He pitched seven innings, giving up six hits and striking out four, allowing one earned run and one walk.

The loss, however, went to middle-reliever James McMahon who pitched a mere third of an inning, but walked two of the three batters he faced, and gave up the go-ahead run. Southern Miss and UAB continue their series Friday, with a first pitch scheduled for 6:30 pm.
