A-Sun: Hatters Rally for Lead
By Bryan App - May 23, 2007
Just when it looked like the Stetson offense could do nothing right, the Hatters erupted for a three-run eighth inning to take a 4-3 lead and leave the hometown crowd screaming.
Lead-off man Shane Jordan was hit by a pitch and Casey Frawley followed up with a walk to chase Lipscomb starter Rex Brothers out of the game. Bison closer Brandon McClurg came to the mound in relief but gave up an RBI single to Braedyn Pruitt to cut Lipscomb's lead to 3-2.
Justin Bass then reached on a throwing error by the shortstop to load the bases with no outs. Adam Tindle became the Hatters' hero, driving a two-run double down the third baseline, giving Stetson a 4-3 lead.
Brian Pruitt reached on a fielder's choice to home to put runners on the corners with one out. Jeremy Cruz then flew out to shallow center, and Tindle tagged up but was thrown out at the plate.
