Southern Miss Athletics Press Release
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Nick Dawson completed a late
Golden Eagle comeback with a go-ahead, run-scoring single in the top of the
10th to lift Southern Miss to an 8-7 extra-inning win over UAB here Sunday
afternoon at Young Memorial Field.
The victory gave the
Golden Eagles (21-16 overall, 10-5 C-USA) their fifth Conference USA series
victory to start the league season – the best start since the 2004 club
accomplished the same feat.
Southern Miss rallied
from four runs down in the ninth and then took the lead for good in the 10th
for its first extra-inning triumph in three tries this season.
With the score tied
at 7-7 in the 10th, Austin Roussel drew a two-out walk. Blazer reliever Adam
Lau then walked Mason Robbins before Dawson, who had two hits in the contest,
singled to center to drive in the game's winning run.
Golden Eagle reliever
Ryan Milton, who threw the final three innings, then got two flyouts to
leftfield and followed with a strikeout to end the game and improve to 3-2 with
the victory. Milton allowed just a hit and fanned two in his strong outing for
though, had to score four times in the ninth just to force the game into extra
USM pinch hitter
Andrew Furr greeted UAB reliever Cory Eller in the ninth with a walk. After the
Blazers recorded a couple of outs, Dawson was hit by a pitch before Breck Kline
cut the margin to 7-4 with a RBI single. Eller then hit Michael Sterling before
seeing his day end. Tim Lynch, who ended his day with three hits, came to the
plate to face Lau, who entered the game at that point.
Lynch, who extended
his hitting streak to nine games, laced a 1-0 pitch into rightfield to clear
the bases and tie the score at 7-apiece. Lynch finished with a career-best four
RBI in the contest. Lau took the loss for the Blazers, allowing a run on two
hits with two walks over an inning of work to fall to 0-1.
It was Lynch, who
also got the Golden Eagles on the board first in the opening inning. With one
Michael Sterling on
first after being hit by a pitch, Lynch doubled just over the bag at first base
to score Sterling on the play. Lynch later scored on a passed ball to give
Southern Miss an early 2-0 lead.
Jeff Schalk put the
Blazers on the board for the first time with a home run to right, his fourth of
the year, to start a four-run, fourth inning. UAB went on to record five hits
in the frame and take a 4-2 advantage.
Southern Miss cut the
gap to a run in the fifth on a double play groundout by Kline to plate a run,
but the Blazers kept their two-run gap in the bottom of the inning with a solo
home run from Griffin Gum.
The Blazers (24-12,
10-5) then took advantage of three Golden Eagle errors in the sixth to score
three more times and take a 7-4 advantage.
The Golden Eagles
return to action Tuesday when they travel to Metairie, La., to face LSU at
Zephyr Field as part of the Wally Pontiff, Jr., Classic. Game time is set for 7
