Western Baseball Falls In Extras To Gorillas

Missouri Western baseball falls to Pittsburg State in extra-innings Friday

Posted: Mar 23, 2018 7:40 PM

Missouri Western (14-12) falls to Pittsburg State (19-9) 4-2 in eleven innings Friday at Spring Sports Complex.

The Griffons held a 2-1 lead into the eighth inning, but were unable to keep the Gorillas from crossing the plate. Andrew Vogelbaugh drove in the tieing run with a double in the eighth.

Both teams had plenty of opportunities to win the game with runners in scoring position. Both pitching staffs got their respective teams out of tough jams.

In the top of the eleventh, Pittsburg State was able to drive in two runs and Western was unable to respond.

The Griffons are back in action Wednesday up in Maryville. They take on Northwest Missouri with a first pitch set for 1:00 p.m.

We enjoyed a very pleasant, dry, and sunny Saturday before the thunderstorms roll in Saturday night. Widespread thunderstorms will move into the area around 8pm Saturday night and will likely last until early Sunday morning. The rain will be moderate to heavy at times. Our biggest threats we are looking at are heavy rainfall, damaging winds, and hail. Wind gusts could reach up to 40-50 mph. A few scattered showers may linger through the morning on Sunday before clearing out. Temperatures will be cooler on Sunday with highs in the mid 50s. Temperatures will be on the cool side to start off next week with highs in the low 60s.
