Southern Miss Athletics Press Release
HATTIESBURG, Miss. – Matt Durst delivered a
sacrifice fly in the bottom of the sixth giving Southern Miss the only run they
needed while Christian Talley and Ryan Milton combined to shutout Conference
USA foe Louisiana Tech for the second-straight day in a 1-0 decision here Saturday
afternoon at Pete Taylor Park/Hill Denson Field.
The Golden Eagles
(23-17 overall, 11-5 C-USA) won its sixth consecutive series to start league
play, marking the first time that has happened since the 2003 club won seven
consecutive sets to open C-USA action. The Golden Eagles remain in second place
in the league standings, trailing Rice by 1 ½ games.
The game turned out
to be a pitchers' duel between LA Tech starter Richie Navari and the Golden
Eagles' Talley as the two pitchers kept the game scoreless through the first
threatened in the first with consecutive singles by Breck Kline and Michael
Sterling, both of whom ended the day with two singles apiece. Tim Lynch then
popped up a bunt and Durst hit into a double play to end the threat.
Navari allowed just
one more hit until the sixth when Sterling singled to leftfield with one out.
Lynch then followed with a hit-and-run single moving Sterling to third. Durst
followed with a long fly ball out to center deep enough to score Sterling.
As for Talley, the
junior right-hander went eight strong innings for the Golden Eagles, scattering
six hits and not allowing a walk while striking out 10 in the contest. It was
his second double-digit strikeout tally of the season. The Bulldogs (10-26,
4-16) tried to rally in the eighth with a one-out single by Taylor Love, but he
was gunned down by Austin Roussel later in the frame on a steal attempt.
Talley got the
victory and improved to 3-2 on the season.
Ryan Milton came on
in the ninth and surrendered a leadoff single to Colby Johnson, but then got
Tyler Ervine to hit in a double play before getting Tyler Qualls to hit a
comebacker for the final out and register his second save of the year.
It was the first time
since Southern Miss beat Ole Miss (10-0 on 3/20/12 in Oxford) and Houston (8-0
on 3/23/12 in Hattiesburg) that they recorded back-to-back shutouts.
Navari finished the
game as the losing pitcher falling to 4-4 on the year, going eight innings and
allowing a run on five hits and three walks with four strikeouts.
The two teams will conclude the series with a 1 p.m., contest Sunday.
