A-Sun: Shaky Start for Stetson Starter

By Bryan App - May 24, 2007

Facing elimination, Jacksonville capitalized on early mistakes from Jacksonville No. 2 pitcher Chris Ingoglia to take a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first.

Ingoglia hit leadoff batter Chuck Opachich, who was picked off at first, and walked No. 2 batter Mike McAllister to start the game. A-Sun Player of the Year Pete Clifford then moved the runner into scoring position with a single before clean-up hitter singled McAllister home.

But Ingoglia (9-4), a first-team all conference selection who's sixth in the conference in strikeouts, did recover, striking out the next four batters. Jacksonville still leads 1-0 heading into the third.
