Georgetown College's baseball team hit the road for a four-game series against Mid-South Conference leader and No. 14 Rio Grande.

In the opening doubleheader Friday, the Tigers needed extra innings to end the RedStorm's 18 game winning streak. Tyler Back's single in the top of the 13th inning scored Tyler Fisher, who led off the inning with a double, as GC claimed a 4-3 win.

The Tigers (18-21, 13-3 MSC) never trailed in the opener at Bob Evans Field. Pete Thackston's two RBI single in the top of the first put GC out in front. Mike Steinke added another run with a solo homerun in the top of the fifth. The RedStorm (35-5, 16-2) rallied back to tie it in the bottom of the sixth. Neither team scored again until Back's single.

Kevin Rueff pitched 11 innings for GC and got a no decision. Tyler Layton pitched the final two innings for the win. Rueff scattered eight hits, allowing just three runs. He walked five batters and struck out six of the 43 he faced.

Fisher led the Tigers at the plate, going 3-of-6 with two runs scored.

Rio took the second game 2-0. K.C. Massie suffered the loss, giving up two runs in the fifth inning. He struck out four and walked two, in six innings of work.

The two teams finish the series Saturday. The first pitch is set for 1 p.m.
