Box Score

With eight runs over the final two innings, the Mizzou Black team took Game 4 of the Fall World Series by a score of 10-2 to stay alive in the best-of-five intersquad series. The series is now tied at two with the fifth and deciding game set for Tuesday night.

Gold put the first run of the game on the board in the bottom of the first inning, when sophomore Brannon Champagne, who led off the inning with a single, stole third base and scored when the throw was off target on the steal attempt.

The Black team pulled even as freshman Myles Smith singled to drive in sophomore Eric Anderson in the top of the fifth inning. However, Gold went back ahead in the bottom of the fifth when sophomore Blake Brown doubled and later scored.

Freshman Sal Belfonte doubled to start the Black team's half of the sixth inning. He would steal third base and then score on a sacrifice fly by junior Ryan Gebhart.

After the first two batters for the Black squad were retired in the top of the eighth, the next six all reached safely, and five would score to give Black a 7-2 lead. Sophomore Jeff Lusardi singled to drive in a pair of runs in the inning and freshman Drew Carlile delivered a bases loaded double that cleared the bases.

Black added three runs in the ninth to make it a 10-2 final.

Sophomore Eric Garcia had three hits on the night for the Black team, while Belfonte, Smith and junior Conner Mach each had two-hit games.

Game 5 of the Fall World Series will be played at 8 p.m. on Tuesday at Taylor Stadium. Admission is free.
