The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Oxford Regional Day One Recap

Oxford Regional Day One Recap

Day one recap
Publish Date: 06/03/2018

Oxford: In a Regional plagued by five inches of rain on Friday, day one action got pushed back to Saturday where fans at Swayze Field were treated to high flying baseball action.

In game one on Saturday, the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles fought off the Missouri State Bears for a 6-4 win. The bats were huge for both teams during game one, both teams combined for twelve hits and ten runs.

Tennessee Tech came into Regional with 128 home runs, 558 RBI’s that was no different on Saturday in the win for the Golden Eagles. Tennessee Tech went for seven runs, six hits, and one home run in the win over Missouri State.

Tennessee Tech pitching was solid up until the 6th inning where the Golden Eagles gave up a massive four-run inning to tie the game at four. Tech rallied ahead in the eighth inning to move past the Bears to advance to the winner side of the bracket.

Tennessee Tech will play Ole Miss Sunday at four on the WatchEspn app and the SEC Network.

Junior Marcus Evey will get the start for the Golden Eagles on Sunday.

Head Coach Matt Bragga had this to say about the win “ We were cruising up four to nothing, and Mo was cruising bump. And all of sudden, the wheels came off a little bit. For our guys to battle back and win, we got out of a man on second with no one out in seventh and the guy did not score. The guys fought hard and I am proud of them”

Missouri State had one monster inning in the loss on Saturday scoring four runs to tie the game up at four, however, the Bears fell short and will have to play out of the losers bracket. St. Louis will take the field on Sunday at noon to face (loser of Ole Miss game) in an elimination game.

Missouri State will start Ty Buckner on Sunday. Bucker has been the second starter all season for the Bears and will get the nod in the winner take all game on Sunday against St. Louis who lost to Ole Miss on Saturday night.

Head Coach Keith Guttin on the loss – “Credit Tennessee Tech, they did a better job, made less mistakes and executed better”

Coach Guttin on playing Ole Miss or St. Louis – “ We haven’t played either this year. I think what Ole Miss has done this year is impressive. St. Louis won both the regular season and their tournament, which means they are playing well right now. SLU has a good number one, no question about it, and obviously so does Ole Miss.”

Ole Miss defeats St. Louis by a score of 9-2 to advance into the winner’s bracket to face the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles.

Ole Miss was on fire getting to St. Louis ace Miller Hogan early and rocking the ace for nine runs and nine hits. Ole Miss finished the day with a total of nine runs and nine hits. Ole Miss will look to carry the momentum into the game with Tennessee Tech on Sunday afternoon, the Rebels will need to score runs in order to keep up with the Golden Eagles.

Ryan Rolison was lights out for the Rebels going for seven full innings, giving up only two runs, and striking out an impressive thirteen batters.

Head Coach Mike Bianco had this to say about the win for Ole Miss – “I thought we played really well, from start to finish. It starts on the mound and Ryan (Rolison) was sharp, especially after he got through the first couple of innings. It’s baseball, where guys as good as Ryan is, he walks a guy, gets behind in a count and gives up a double for two runs. But really after that he seemed liked he locked in and really stayed ahead in the count. You can tell that by the number of strikeouts he had with 13. I always think that in this kind of environment you have to get the fans into it, you got to do something offensively. Usually It’s hard for the fans to get excited for defense and pitching even though that’s what we all say wins championships. You need somebody to break the ice and of course Z-Bo (Cole Zabowski) came up with the big home run and the big second inning by us where we were able to put runs on the board. Then a big home run by Keenan and extra base hits which allowed us to extend the lead. All in all, we played really well today” 

Mike Bianco on playing the Golden Eagles – “We’ll be starting Brady Feigl and we expect to see one of the best offenses in the country. Obviously (they have) crazy offensive numbers not just with the homeruns, but with the batting average. Throughout the lineup, just like us, where it’s not just from a couple of guys but throughout the lineup all nine guys hit over three hundred, six with double digit home runs. It is going to take a real good effort from the mound against them. They are a real good club.”

Ole Miss will go with Brady Fiegal in the game with Tennessee Tech.

After jumping out to a short lived 2-0 lead St. Louis suffered a few costly errors that eventually cost the Billikens the game.

Ace Miller Hogan was rocked by the explosive Ole Miss offense who put up nine runs on nine hits on Hogan.

St. Louis will look to keep the season alive on Sunday as they play Missouri State in the elimination game. The winner of that game will turn around and play again at 8 against the loser of Ole Miss and Tennessee Tech.

Sunday will be a jammed packed day for baseball at Swayze as three games will be played, the first starting at noon and the latest starting at eight. Swayze will be the place to be on Sunday as two teams try to keep the season alive and one tries to advance to the Regional Championship on Monday.

Missouri State and St. Louis will start at noon

Ole Miss and Tennessee Tech at 4:00p

Winner of St Louis/ Missouri State will face the loser of Ole Miss and Tennessee Tech at 8p from Swayze Field.
