COLUMBIA, Mo. - Behind the the command of pitcher Jeff Scardino, the Gold Team of the Missouri Tiger baseball squad earned its first win of the Fall World Series Friday night over the Black team 3-1.
Scardino (1-0) went six innings for the Gold team, giving up only two hits with a walk, fanning seven batters in the process. Phil McCormick (1) earned the save coming in during the bottom of the ninth to close out the game, while Zach Hardoin (0-1) got the loss for the Black team.
There wasn't much offense for either team for the first few innings of the game, but that all changed in the bottom half of the fourth inning. After two straight singles from Eric Anderson and Rex Meyr to start the inning, Russel LaFleur flied out to right field, bringing in Anderson who had advanced to third on the Meyr single.
The one error the Black team had in the game haunted them quickly, as in the bottom of the sixth after T. J. Schieber got on base from a walk, advanced to third after an errant pick off throw, and was then brought in on an Anderson RBI fly out. After a pitching change, and with runners on second and third, Kale Gaden singled to bring in Garrison McLagan who was walked earlier.
The one run for the Black team came in the eighth when Jonah Schmidt doubled to center field bringing in Jesse Santo after he got on base with an early single.
Meyr led the Gold team going 2-for-3 from the plate, while Gaden went 1-for-3 with an RBI and Anderson going 1-for-1 with an RBI and run scored. Santo went 1-for-3 with a run scored for the Black team, with Schmidt and Connor Mack also going 1-for-3 at the plate.
The final game of the Fall World Series will take place tomorrow afternoon at 3 p.m. at Taylor Stadium.
