Oct. 17, 2009
COLUMBIA, Mo. - Unlike yesterday's pitcher's duel, game four of the Missouri Baseball Fall World Series had much more firepower, with the Black team capitalizing on four Gold team errors to win the game 9-5, and the series, 3-1 Saturday afternoon.
The Gold team came out firing early, scoring two runs on two hits in the top of the first inning, with a 2 RBI hit coming from the bat of Brett Nicholas, who doubled to left bringing in Aaron Senne and Kale Gaden.
Not wanting to be left out of the offensive barrage, the Black team would storm back with a three-run bottom half of that inning, where an error by the Gold team put two runners on base. A Brannon Champagne double scored two to tie the game at 2-2, but not for long as he was brought in after a Blake Brown RBI groundout.
Then in the fourth, Brown tripled to right, and was promptly brought in by a Ryan Ampleman single. Ampleman advanced to third after a Dane Opel single, and then scored on a balk by the Gold Team to put the Black team up 5-2.
The Gold team fought back to within two of the Black team in the sixth inning, as Russel LaFleur singled to left, bringing in Senne to make the score 5-3. However, the Black team struck again in the bottom of the sixth, scoring two runs on two hits from an RBI double from Jonah Schmidt and Ampleman RBI sacrifice fly making the score 7-3.
The last two runs for the Black team came in the seventh inning off two errors by the Gold team, as the home team didn't even record a hit in that inning and took a 9-3 lead. While the final two runs for the Gold team came in the eighth and ninth inning on a Nicholas RBI single and Eric Garcia reaching home on a wild pitch, making the final score 9-5.
Champagne led the Black team at the plate, going 2-for-4 with two RBI's and two runs scored, while Nicholas led the Gold team going 2-for-4 with three RBI's. Nick Tepesch earned the win for the black team, going six innings and giving up three runs with eight strikeouts. Eric Anderson got the loss for the Gold team, going five innings, giving up five runs, with four of them earned.
