Jax State whups Troy 7-3 on the road

03/19/2014

It may be the most joyed win of any regular season contest in any sport when the Gamecocks can come out on top against rival Troy.

With the help of a five-run first inning, JSU did just that when they dropped the Trojans 7-3 in baseball on Tuesday night.

Troy’s Jesse Nelson couldn’t get out of the first inning as the Gamecocks loaded the bases early. Jarrett Hood drew a walk that led to the first run. Freshman Josh Bobo then singled up the middle for a hit the plated two more runs. Finally, senior Stephen Bartlett ripped a single to left that allowed two more runs to score making it 5-0 fast.

The Trojans fought back with a run in the bottom of the first and two in the fourth to make it a 6-3 ballgame after Jax State had scored again in the second when Joe McGuire scooted home on a wild pitch after his two-out triple.

Troy (10-9) was shut out the rest of the way as Ryan Sebra pitched the final 2 1/3 innings to earn his first win of the season.

The Gamecocks added an insurance run in the ninth that eventually gave way to the final score, 7-3.

Jacksonville State (12-8) has now beaten UAB and Troy the season and will host Samford next Tuesday at Rudy Abbott Field. JSU is 4-2 in the OVC and hosts Austin Peay this weekend for a three game series with the Governors.
