Troy-OSU updates (Troy wins 9-2)
Here at Hawkins Field at Vandy. OSU pulled a little surprise, not throwing their top guy and going with righty Hunter Herrera (3-1, 3.76 ERA). Looks good so far, as he got a strikeout and two weak grounders to get Troy 1-2-3 in the first.
END 1 - OSU got 2 hits, but no runs. Adam Bryant made a big-time play at SS, then after a single, Boone Shear threw out Dane Phillips at home. 0-0.
END 2 - OSU struck first on a solo homer from Luis Uribe over the LCF wall. Lead Troy 1-0.
END 3 - OSU now leads 2-0. Shines led off with a double to RF - looked like Workman misplayed it a little bit. He scores on a high pop up down RF line that Rivera at 2B never could find. Troy gets out of it with a beautiful 3-6-3 DP started by Pierce.
END 4 - Troy got a run in the 4th, infield single by McRae (yes, really) scores Bryant from third. Ray got 1-2-3 in the bottom. 2-1 OSU.
END 5 - Not much going on for either team in the fifth. Still 2-1 OSU. Troy has 3-4-5 due up.
END 6 - Troy broke through, got 3 in the top. Rivera singled in a run, Hillyer singled in a run and a bases loaded BB.
END 7 - Troy still leads 4-2. Logan Pierce turned his second 3-6-3 double play.
END 8 - Trojans blew it open with 2 outs. Hannah tripled in 3 off the wall in right. Later, Rivera doubled in 2. With 2 on and 2 out in the 8th, Nate Hill relieved Tyler Ray and got the out. Troy now leads 9-2.
FINAL - Troy wins 9-2. Tyler Ray is 12-0. TJ Rivera went 3-for-5 with 3 RBIs.
