Baseball - Sat, Apr. 23, 2011

The only thing that seemed to be able to stop the Tiger baseball offense Friday evening was a severe storm rolling through Georgetown about 6:45 p.m. Once the cell had passed game one of the best of three series against West Virginia Tech was suspended to due field conditions.

It is set to restart in the top of the eighth inning at noon Saturday with Georgetown leading 7-1.


Georgetown broke open a 1-1 affair with six runs in the sixth and seventh innings, knocking two Golden Bear pitchers from the game. Chris Wood got it all going with a lead-off double in the sixth. Randy Guite followed with a single to put runners on the corners with no outs and Tyler Fisher at the plate. Fisher singled and Tyler Back singled to give GC a 2-1 lead, bases loaded with no outs and Pete Thackston at the plate.

Thackston ripped a double that scored all three runs, but Back missed third and was called out in an appeal. Thackston scored on Cameron Allen's second RBI double of the game for a 5-1 lead and all the damage in the sixth inning.

Tanner Baldwin and Wood again got on to put runners on the corners with no outs in the top of the seventh. Baldwin scored on a wild pitch and Wood eventually scored for the 7-1 lead.

K.C. Massie was throwing a four-hit game with just one run scored, no walks and five strikeouts.

The winner of this series advances to the second portion of the Mid-South Conference tournament next week at Campbellsville. If this game is not finished, the Tigers advance as the higher seed.
