Game Two of Eagles vs. Elon Postponed Until Sunday
STATESBORO, Ga. Georgia Southern Baseball and Elon made it to the top of the fourth inning before rain forced Saturday’s game two of the series to get postponed.
The game will resume where it left on Sunday (March 29) at 12 noon. Elon is leading 5-1 with one out and no one on base and a 1-2 count to leadoff hitter Zeth Stone.
Georgia Southern freshman Matt Murray (Spring City, PA/Owen Roberts) struck out the side in the first inning and got the first out of the second frame on a lineout. From there a walk, RBI triple, RBI single and back-to-back home runs from Ryan Adams (2-run) and Dallas Tarleton accounted for all five Phoenix runs.
The Eagles threatened in the third, all with two outs. Kevin Bowles (Statesboro/Statesboro) reached on a bunt single then Phillip Porter (Marietta/Sprayberry) singled up the middle. Griffin Benedict (Dunwoody/St. Pius) hit a chopper past third baseman Barrett Davis to score a run. Ty Wright (Montrose/ABAC) was hit by a pitch to load the bases but Jimmy Reyes worked out of the jam getting a force out.
Fellow freshman Colin Snow (Alpharetta/Alpharetta) got the final two outs of the second, two strikeouts to close out the third and fanned Tarleton for the first out of the fourth before the umpires called the rain delay.
