Gray Leads Bona Baseball To Victory In Series Opener At Marshall

BECKLEY, W. Va. - Redshirt junior Eddie Gray pitched eight innings and allowed just one run leading the St. Bonaventure baseball team (6-5) to a 3-1 win over host Marshall Friday afternoon in the first of a three-game series.

The Bonnies opened up the scoring in the top of the fourth inning on a sacrifice fly by junior third baseman Billy Urban, scoring junior outfielder Eric Jutca. Junior first baseman Austin Ingraham then doubled to left field, batting in senior left fielder Nick Brennen.

The Brown and White tacked on another run in the top of the fifth after Brennen singled to center field, scoring junior second baseman Jason Radwan.
The Thundering Herd scored a run in the bottom of the eighth, but ultimately couldn't rally in the bottom of the ninth to tie or win the game. Radwan closed out the game for the Bonnies, allowing a hit and a walk and striking out two batters.
Brennen went two for four with an RBI. Ingraham and Urban also batted runs in.
The Brown and White continue their series with Marshall Saturday at 4 p.m.
