Tyler Horsley and Teal Young combined for an outstanding one-hit performance Thursday night at Reagan Field as they led the Gold Team to a 4-1 victory over the Navy in game two of Murray State baseball's Fall World Series. The Gold now takes a commanding 2-0 lead in the best-of-five series.
The only offense mustered by the Navy came via a solo home run from Tyler Duke in the bottom of the seventh. The Gold offense was kept muted for much of the game as well, as Ryan Perkins and Jake Slunder recorded the only two hits. Both went for extra-bases though, as Perkins hit a home run off the batters eye in the second and Slunder hit a triple.
Dylan Letellier and Perkins provided an RBI each in the win for the Gold while Slunder scored three runs. Eight walks hampered the Navy team's pitching efforts in the contest.
Horsley got the win as he pitched three hitless innings in the seven-inning contest and struck-out seven batters and walked just one. Young picked up the save as he went four innings and had three strikeouts. Peyton Hayes took the loss for the Navy as he pitched four innings and allowed one earned run off two hits and struck-out seven.
Game three of the series is set for 2:45 Friday afternoon with game four taking place Oct. 24 at 3 p.m.
