Racers cruise past Hornets 9-1

-- Staff report

Murray State got a five-run fifth inning after jumping out to an early lead Tuesday night at Johnny Reagan Field and snapped its five game skid with a 9-1 victory over Harris-Stowe State.

MSU (16-16) scored two first-inning runs to take the quick lead. Brandon Gutzler scored from second on a throwing error to score the Racers' first run of the game. Jack Hranec delivered an RBI double down the left field line to score Tyler Lawrence.

After a HSSU run in the top of the third cut the Racers' lead in half, MSU responded by scoring in each of the next three innings. Adam Bauer hit his third home run of the season in the bottom half of the third to make the score 3-1 before a Jaron Robinson RBI single up the middle in the fourth pushed the lead to 4-1.

Ryan Perkins capped a five-run fifth with his team co-leading seventh homer of the season.

John Lollar picked up his second win of the season going four innings and allowing just the one run on three hits. He struck out a career-high eight batters including the first five of the game.
