Murray State drops series finale at Tech

Staff report

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Alex Junior broke a 9-all tie with a three-run homer in the bottom of the sixth inning and Tennessee Tech went on to beat Murray State 14-10 Saturday to sweep their Ohio Valley Conference baseball series.

Junior's blast came during a six-run inning, erasing Murray State's early lead for good. The Racers (16-19, 6-9 OVC) led by as much as 9-3, thanks in part to a pair of three-run homers from Ryan Perkins. Brandon Gutzler also homered for Murray.

Kit Fowler (3-1), who allowed two runs in 42/3 innings of relief, notched the victory for the league-leading Golden Eagles (29-9, 16-2). Alec Whaley (1-1) took the loss for Murray State after giving up four runs, including Junior's home run, in two-thirds of an inning.

Friday's game

For the second night in a row, the Murray State offense was held in check as the Racers mustered just five hits in a 6-4 loss Friday night at Tennessee Tech.

When MSU did get runners on base, it failed to capitalize, going 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position and 1-of-9 with baserunners aboard.

The Golden Eagles scored a run in the first inning on a sacrifice fly. In the top of the second, the Racers tied the game when Davis Sims flied out to right field, scoring Tyler Lawrence. TTU, however, scored in each of the next three innings, including two runs in the second and in the fourth.

MSU scored two in the fourth and one in the sixth.

The Racers return to action at home Tuesday against Western Kentucky.
