Huge Ninth Leads to First Win for 'Roo Baseball

Huge Ninth Leads to First Win for 'Roo Baseball

The Austin College baseball team scored six runs in the top of the ninth inning to earn its first victory of the season in a 7-4 win over Louisiana College in McKinney on Friday. The 'Roos are now 1-4 overall this season.

The 'Roos jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth when Colt Herron singled home a run, but Louisiana College scored the next four runs to take a 4-1 lead into the final inning. In the ninth, the 'Roos took advantage of two errors and got RBI sacrifice flies from Josh Coughennower and Herron as part of a six run inning to take a 7-4 lead, and Austin Rainer set down Louisiana College in order in the bottom of the ninth to earn his first collegiate victory in relief.

Herron went 3-for-4 with two RBI and Dylan Day also went 3-for-4 in the win, while Rainer pitched two scoreless innings of one hit ball with one strikeout and no walks to get the win.

The 'Roos take on Willamette tomorrow in a doubleheader at home beginning at 1:00 p.m.
