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.
