Team White Takes Commanding Lead in Fall World Series


(Submitted by Grant Chambers)

San Antonio - Game 3 of the Fall World Series continued the trend of one-run, come from behind victories by Team White.

Down 7-4 going into the bottom of the ninth, Team White rallied to tie the game before pulling it out in the tenth on a base hit by Dom Robusto to centerfield, over the head of Will Donnan to give Team White a 9-8 victory. 

The game started out as a pitchers duel between reigning conference Pitcher of the Year Noah Soloman and redshirt Freshman Josh Fink.  Soloman scattered 3 hits over 7 innings and punched out 11, while Fink matched him with a dominant performance of his own, only giving up 2 runs and three hits over 6 innings.  Both bullpens proved to be ineffective, with the majority of the runs scoring after the 7th inning. Team White had a huge game from Evan Jones, who went 4 for 5 with two doubles and three RBI.  For Team Grey, Kevin Francke, Nick Pappas, Will Donnan, and Paul Knowlton all had multi-hit games.

Game 4 features a pitching matchup of Tristan Heckerl and Franklin Bay, in a win-or-go-home situation for Team Grey.
