METRO ROUNDUP: Sycamores fall short 6-5 at Auburn

AUBURN, Ala. — The tournament-host Auburn Tigers held the Indiana State baseball team without a hit over the final seven innings of their matchup Sunday, picking a 6-5 victory over the Sycamores in the final game of the tournament at Plainsman Park and Hitchcock Field.

Indiana State (3-4) made three errors in the first inning on Sunday, allowing three unearned runs to cross the plate. The Sycamores responded with five runs in the top of the second inning to take a 5-3 lead, totaling five hits in the frame. Junior Tyler Wampler (hit by pitch), sophomore Landon Curry (groundout), redshirt sophomore Jacob Hayes (single), senior Robby Ort (fielder’s choice) and junior Mike Fitzgerald (single) tallied five consecutive RBIs for Indiana State in the inning.

Auburn (6-1) came back to tie the game in the bottom half of the inning on the strength of a two-run double by Ryan Tella. The Tigers took the lead for good in the fourth inning, as Tella brought home Dan Glevenyak with a single to center.

Indiana State touched up AU starter Rocky McCord for five runs and five hits in 1 2/3 innings of work, but the bullpen combination of Justin Camp and Conner Kendrick combined to allow just one hit in 7 1/3 shutout innings of work with six strikeouts. Camp (2-0) earned the victory on the mound, Kendrick picking up the save in relief.

Junior Jeff Degano (0-1) took the loss for Indiana State, allowing six runs (three earned) on eight hits in 3 1/3 innings on the mound.

• Rose-Hulman 8, Farmingdale State 6 — At Winter Haven, Fla., Rose-Hulman opened the 2013 baseball season with an 8-6 win over nationally ranked Farmingdale State to open the team's six-game Florida trip on Sunday.

Rose-Hulman received votes in the preseason national poll, and Farmingdale State entered the game with a No. 25 national ranking.

The Engineers scored five runs in the fourth inning to propel the offensive effort, with freshman Patrick Klima providing the key hit with a three RBI, bases loaded triple.

Junior Andrew Benitez, sophomore Josh Hoeing and senior Bobby Newman slapped two hits each as part of Rose-Hulman's 11-hit attack.  Freshman Evan Witsken added one single and one run scored.

The offense helped lift freshman Karson Nixon to a win in his college debut.  Nixon came out of the bullpen to pitch three scoreless innings, allowing just two hits with one strikeout.

Sophomore Jake Althouse tossed a scoreless eighth inning, and junior Hank Akard pitched a scoreless ninth for his first save of the year and the 10th of his career.

Rose-Hulman continues its Florida trip with a matchup against Alma College on Monday at 11 a.m.

  • Andy Amey: Just a small trip to talk about this time

    To paraphrase Carl Spackler, the heavy stuff’s not going to come for quite awhile. So while it’s true that I’m back from a week’s vacation, it’s not time — yet — for the big vacation column. Trips to Noblesville, Brunswick and Reelsville, while providing some nice family time, don’t really have the cachet to fill newspaper space.
