HATTIESBURG, Miss. - When in doubt, Southern Miss
tends to turn to Bradley Roney.
The junior closer, who went three innings to close out a
win-or-go-home victory Thursday, went 3.2 innings Saturday afternoon, stifling
UTSA long enough for the Golden Eagles to pull out an 8-7 win in the ninth inning
in the 2014 Conference USA Baseball Tournament.
Roney also wound up scoring the game-winning run as a pinch
runner in the ninth inning on center fielder Connor Barron's fielder's choice
grounder with the bases loaded.
"Real proud of our team and the way we came out and
competed," USM coach Scott Berry said.
Third-seeded USM (35-24) overcame three errors and seven
walks by three pitchers not named Roney to force a second game with the
seventh-seeded Roadrunners (34-25). The winner would play in Sunday's 1 p.m.
championship game with an NCAA Regional berth on the line.
For USM, which had to beat UTSA or see its season end,
Saturday afternoon was a see-saw ride.
UTSA starter Cody Brannon got the first two outs in the
first inning, then fell apart.
He gave up a single to right fielder Mason Robbins, walked
designated hitter Matt Durst and gave up a run-scoring single to first baseman
Brannon hit third baseman Michael Gilbert to load the bases,
then walked catcher Austin Roussel to make it 2-0 and end his afternoon.
But USM's Cody Carroll, who dodged trouble through the first
two innings, couldn't get out of third.
Nine-hole hitter C.J. Pickering singled to the hole with one
out, and right fielder John Welborn hit a big chopper that Gilbert threw into
right field trying to get Pickering at second.
After striking out shortstop Horacio Correa, first baseman
Mike Warren to load the bases, and third baseman R.J. Perucki dropped a two-run
single into left field in front of a diving Breck Kline.
Catcher John Bormann hit a run-scoring single to center to
give UTSA a 3-2 and finish Carroll. Nick Johnson came in, threw 16 pitches,
walking three batters and forcing in two runs for a 5-2 UTSA lead.
All five runs were unearned.
But USM batted around in the top of the fourth inning to
score five runs as well.
Second baseman Nick Dawson hit an RBI-single and shortstop
Michael Sterling's fielder's choice got USM within 5-4 before Robbins drove a
double into the left-center field gap to put the Golden Eagles back on top.
Gilbert's sacrifice fly made it 7-5.
"After giving up the five-spot when we had the lead, and
then come back with another spot (ourselves), that says a lot about our kids,"
But UTSA tacked on an unearned run in the fifth, with center
fielder Jesse Baker scoring on left fielder Logan Kinder's single that Barron
bobbled and then threw wildly into the infield.
The Roadrunners tied it in the sixth, loading the bases with
one out on a walk, single and intentional walk.
Enter Roney (2-0).
Bormann tied the game with a sacrifice fly, but Roney got
out of the jam with a tapper back to the mound.
UTSA would manage just one baserunner in the final three
innings, as Roney allowed just one hit while striking out four.
UTSA relievers Matt Sims and Jeremy Filipek checked the
Golden Eagles through four scoreless innings until the ninth.
Durst coaxed a leadoff walk from Filipek (2-1) and moved to
second on Burdeaux' bunt. After walking Gilbert, Flipek gave way to Boone
Roussel poked a seeing-eye single through the hole at
shortstop to load the bases, and on 2-2 count, Barron cracked a hard grounder
that Warren speared to save from right field and got a force out at second
But Roney scored on the play, and in the ninth he sandwiched
a strikeout around two flyballs.
Dawson had three of USM's 10 hits, as the bottom of the
Golden Eagles' order went 6 of 14 against UTSA. Welborn had two of UTSA;s eight
"All year long, it has been different guys," Berry
said. "For us to do that and get that kind of production from the bottom of the
order, that was huge."
