PRESS RELEASE FROM SOUTHERN MISS
HATTIESBURG, Miss. – Southern Miss rode a four-run second inning and a
strong starting pitching performance from Andrew Pierce to defeat Eastern
Illinois 6-3 here on a rainy Friday night at Pete Taylor Park/Hill Denson
The first game of the
Southern Miss Invitational earlier in the day saw Missouri State defeat Alcorn
State, 8-1. On Saturday, EIU and Alcorn State will meet at 12 noon, while the
Golden Eagles (4-1) will take on Missouri State at 4 p.m.
It was USM's Isaac
Rodriguez, who had a pair of doubles in the contest, which started off the
big-scoring inning with a two-base hit before Blake Brown singled to put runners
on the corners. Designated hitter Tim Lynch put Southern Miss on the board with
a run-scoring single through the right side and Andrew Furr followed with a
Bradley Roney then
walked before Chase Fowler singled to right which was misplayed and allowed a
pair of runs to score to give USM the early 4-0 advantage.
"We've played well enough to be 4-1, but
offensively, we have not jelled like we're capable of, yet," said Southern Miss
coach Scott Berry, whose team managed six hits in the contest. "It's like I
told the team, if we get everything going, we're going to be a very good team."
As for the senior
righthander, Pierce (2-0) retired the first 10 batters he faced and gave up no
runs on just three singles over 7 1/3 with five strikeouts to get the victory.
He threw 79 pitches, 55 for strikeouts, before a one hour, 18-minute rain delay
forced him to leave the game.
With Southern Miss up
5-0 – the Golden Eagles also scored on a Panther error in the sixth – EIU
rallied for three runs off Luke Lowery following the delay to cut the gap on a
two-run double from Jacob Reese and an RBI single from Nick Priessman.
Southern Miss then
sent for Daniel Wineski, who got out of the inning when Priesmann was caught
advancing to second on a pitch that briefly eluded Fowler behind the plate.
The Eagles finished
their scoring with a Furr RBI single up the middle in the bottom of the eighth.
