Late surge gives Indiana State baseball team sweep of Alcorn State

TERRE HAUTE — Nine runs in the last three innings Sunday at Bob Warn Field made Indiana State’s sweep of visiting Alcorn State a reality in college baseball, the Sycamores closing out the three-game set with a 10-1 victory.

Alcorn had tied the score in the top of the sixth inning on a two-out single by Angel Polo, but the Sycamores got two tie-breaking runs in the bottom of the inning — rewarding Greg Kuhlman for a solid six-inning start — then added two in the seventh and five in the eighth.

Mike Fitzgerald, who had given ISU an early 1-0 lead with a two-out hit that drove in Robby Ort, had a go-ahead single and Connor McClain added a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning and three walks, a hit batter, a passed ball and an Alcorn error led to two more in the seventh.

Highlight of the 11-batter eighth inning was a two-run single by Taylor Shaw, the first Sycamore RBIs for the senior transfer from Southern Utah.

Kuhlman had a career-high nine strikeouts and needed just 76 pitches in his six-inning stint.

“The big story of the day was Greg Kuhlman’s start,” coach Rick Heller said afterward. “That’s the best I’ve seen him in his career here.”

Tyler Fehringer and Josh Negele pitched the final three innings without allowing  runner to reach base.

Ort was 2 for 4 with three runs and three stolen bases and Fitzgerald was 2 for 3 with two RBIs to lead the ISU offense. Derek Hannahs got an infield hit in the eighth inning, extending his team-best hitting streak to 14 games.

“Robby Ort had a decent day, and we were able to take advantage of some Alcorn mistakes,” Heller noted. “We’ve set ourselves up to hopefully have a good finish [to the season].”

The win improved Indiana State to 21-22 on the season and 14-6 on their home field while Alcorn State dropped to 15-39 overall. The Sycamores have four more home games, a 6 p.m. contest Tuesday against Ball State and the final Missouri Valley Conference series against Bradley from Thursday through Saturday.
