Racers survive series finale with Morehead State

Staff report

Luke Brown pitched a gem, recording the best outing of his young career, and Murray State survived a furious ninth-inning rally by Morehead State to escape with a 12-11 victory Sunday afternoon in their Ohio Valley Conference series finale.

Brown, who held the Eagles (32-19, 16-10 OVC) hitless through 52/3 innings, allowed just three hits and one run over seven innings while striking out five.

The seven innings pitched are a career-best for Brown and the five strikeouts ties his career-best.

Morehead was able to make things interesting in the ninth as the Racers (25-26, 13-14) carried a 12-2 lead into the bottom half of the inning.

The Eagles would get back-to-back home runs to cut the Racers lead to 12-8 and would then get a triple to cut the margin to just one before Alec Whaley got a game-ending strikeout on the nation's leading home run hitter, Niko Hulsizer.

Whaley would record his second save of the season for his efforts.

Murray State hit multiple homers for the third consecutive game, thanks to the hitter-friendly confines of Allen Field.

Davis Sims was able to belt his ninth and 10th homers of the season as he went 3-for-4 with five RBIs, three runs scored and a double. Kipp Moore had the other home run for the Racers as he went 2-for-5 with three runs.

Jaron Robinson joined Sims with a team-high three-hit day, as he was 3-of-5 at the plate with a double, an RBI and a run. Jack Hranec and Ryan Perkins also each went 2-for-5 in the win as Murray pounded out 16 hits.
