Wichita State Shockers

Wichita State, South Florida settle for a tie in baseball series finale

Wichita State baseball rallied from a four-run deficit in the late innings, but had to settle for a 9-9 tie against South Florida on Sunday at Eck Stadium.

The game was halted after the top half of the 11th inning. The deadline to finish the game was 3 p.m., so that South Florida could begin its return trip to Tampa, Fla.

Trailing 9-5 in the seventh, WSU’s Greyson Jenista walked and scored on Alex Jackson’s single.

In the eighth, Luke Ritter walked and Alec Bohm hit his 14th homer of the season to bring WSU to within one, 9-8. Gunnar Troutwine doubled and scored the tying run on Jennista’s single.

The Shockers scored three in the first and two in the fifth, with four of the runs coming with two outs.

The Shockers (32-17-1, 7-13-1 AAC) dodged a bullet in the ninth when Chandler Sanburn yielded two singles to the first two hitters. He wiggled out of the jam, getting a forceout, a strikeout and a fly ball.

Notes: USF (30-17-1, 12-8-1) left 13 baserunners, nine in scoring position. WSU stranded 12 baserunners, eight in scoring position.… USF had been 27-0 when leading after seven innings.… WSU pitcher Cody Tyler was inserted as a pinch-runner and stole a base in the 10th, then stayed in the game and played right field in the top of the 11th. WSU will finish its home season Tuesday against Kansas State and go to Memphis on Thursday, Friday and Saturday to complete the regular season.
