Louisville Digs Out of Early 4-0 Hole
Louisville surrendered a pair of runs in each of the first two innings and fell behind GlenOak 4-0. However, the Leopards would rally back with four runs over the next two innings to tie the game heading into the fifth frame.
In the third, senior left fielder Connor Adelman drew a five pitch walk and then stole second base. Then junior center fielder Charlie Roberts knocked home Adelman on on a two-out single to left field to cut the Leopard deficit to 4-1.
Louisville scored three more runs with two outs in the fourth inning. Adelman walked with the bases loaded bringing home junior courtesy runner Caleb Harsh to chop the Golden Eagle lead in half at 4-2. Sophomore second baseman Andrew Corona followed with a two-run single to center field that brought Harsh and Adelman to the plate to knot the game at 4-4.
GlenOak Retakes the Lead 7-4
GlenOak tacked on three more runs over the next two innings to pull ahead 7-4. Senior pitcher Alec Marran hit a one-out double to get things started for the Golden Eagles in the fifth. He then scored when junior left fielder Carter Mucci reached on an infield single. Senior catcher Tristan Mengeu drove in sophomore third baseman Jerry Alexander in the at-bat that followed to put GlenOak ahead 6-4.
In the sixth inning, junior second baseman Tommy ElFaye cracked a two-out single scoring junior shortstop Alex Laird from second to put the Golden Eagles ahead 7-4.
Bang-Bang Call Halts Leopard Rally
The Leopards inched closer in the bottom of the sixth. Senior right fielder Zack Seaman hit a one-out double advancing sophomore first baseman Cole Miller to third in the process. Adelman followed with a groundout to third base that scored Miller to trim the Louisville deficit to 7-5.
Leopards Head Coach Brian Warner appealed the call at first after Adelman appeared to beat the throw. However, the umpires stuck with their call for the second out of the inning. The LHS rally stalled after that as Corona flied out in the at-bat that followed to end the inning. Louisville would failed to score in the seventh inning and the Golden Eagles claimed a 7-5 victory.
Mazeke Has Multi-Hit Game for Golden Eagles
Freshman right fielder Quincy Mazeke finished 2-for-3 for GlenOak who out-hit Louisville 8-3 for the contest. ElFaye and junior pitcher Luke Senften also drove in a pair of runs each for the Golden Eagles. Senften also earned the victory on the mound working five innings, giving up four earned runs on just one hit, and striking out three.
