Box Score

ATHENS, Ohio – After falling behind 4-0 through three innings, the University of Cincinnati baseball team combined to score seven runs in innings five through seven to defeat the Ohio University Bobcats, 7-6, Tuesday evening at Bob Wren Stadium. Senior Mike Spina (Newberry, Fla./Newberry) paced Cincinnati with three hits, while freshman Cory Hough (Lebanon, Ohio/ contributed two hits, including a game-tying solo home run in the sixth inning, and drove in a team-best two RBI.

Leading 7-5 in the ninth, senior Jake Geglein (Cincinnati, Ohio/McNicholas) entered but worked himself into a bit of trouble as Ohio closed the UC lead to 7-6 and worked the bases loaded with two outs with its best hitter coming to the plate in Marc Krauss. However, Geglein forced Krauss to line out to left field, ending the game and giving the Bearcats the win. The save was Geglein’s ninth of the season and the 20th of his career, making him the first Bearcats player to accumulate 20 career saves.

In the bottom of the first, Krauss put Ohio on top with a solo home run. Two Bearcat errors in the second coupled with a pair of Bobcat hits allowed Ohio to cross the plate twice in the second, expanding its lead to 3-0.  A lead-off triple by Hayden Johnston in the third eventually turned into a run, which widened the Bobcats lead to 4-0.


 

 

Sophomore Chris Peters (Tipp City, Ohio/Tipp City) led the UC comeback in the fifth inning with a lead-off double down the left field line. Redshirt freshman Zach Collaros (Steubenville, Ohio/Steubenville) reached base and moved Peters to third on an infield single, placing runners on the corners with no outs. Two batters later, senior Cameron Satterwhite (Cincinnati, Ohio/Moeller) laced a one ball, two strikes pitch into left field for a one-out single that plated Peters, giving UC its first run of the game. Spina continued the rally with a RBI double down the left field line scoring Collaros and moving Satterwhite from first to third. UC’s final run in the inning came on a RBI ground out from Lance Durham (Forest Park, Ohio/Roger Bacon), as Cincinnati went to the bottom of the fifth trailing 4-3.

A scoreless Ohio fifth inning ensued and with one out in the sixth, Hough hit an opposite field home run in his first at-bat of the game, tying the game at four. The home run was Hough’s third of the season.

An inning later with the game still tied at four, patient UC at-bats helped the Bearcats take their first lead of the game. Without making contact with the ball, Cincinnati loaded the bases on a hit-by-pitch to Satterwhite and back-to-back walks to Spina and Durham. During the next at-bat, a wild pitch plated Satterwhite, giving the Bearcats a 5-4 lead. After a strikeout, a passed ball scored Spina from third and moved Durham to third as UC upped its lead to 6-4. Another strikeout left Durham at third with two outs, but Hough delivered a clutch two-out, RBI single that moved the Bearcats lead to 7-4.

Ohio scored one run in the bottom of the seventh to cut its deficit to 7-5, and that same score was present in the bottom of the ninth. Ohio scored a run in the ninth and had the winning run on second, but Geglein preserved the 7-6 win with the save.

Cincinnati returns home to host a pivotal three-game BIG EAST Conference series against Seton Hall May 12-14, its final home series of the 2009 season.

Thursday’s series opener is Date Night as all couples will enter for free. In addition to Date Night, Thursday will also be Cause Awareness Night raising awareness for Leukemia/Lymphoma.
