Campbellsville University scored four runs in the top of the ninth inning Friday night, which was the difference in the finals of the loser's bracket of the Mid-South Conference. The 5-1 loss knocks Georgetown College out of the postseason, as CU advances into Saturday's championship finals with Rio Grande.Chase Ballinger got the start after helping the GC Tigers comeback Thursday night against St. Catharine. The sophomore from Lexington went 8 and 1/3 innings, scattering nine hits and allowing three earned runs with six strikeouts and two walks.
GC trailed 1-0 heading into the ninth when CU batted around to score four runs on five hits and four Georgetown errors. The GC Tigers tried to rally back in the bottom of the ninth. Tyler Fisher, who hit a three-run homerun in Thursday's elimination game to give GC the 7-6 win, started the last at bat with a solo homerun.
Pete Thackston, who hit two, two-run homeruns Thursday, singled. But that along with a pair of rain delays, a lightening delay, and a pitching change only delayed the inevitable. CU got the next three batters out to advance to the finals.
