McIntyre's career day lifts ORU past Louisiana Tech, 9-3

RUSTON, La. — Graham McIntyre leads the Oral Roberts baseball team to victory in the rubber match of a three-game set at Louisiana Tech on Sunday afternoon, as the Golden Eagles roll to victory, 9-3.

 

McIntyre finished his career afternoon with three hits, including a double, three runs batted in and a run scored. Brandon Healy came off the bench and added two RBI’s on a late game single.

 

In the top of the fifth, with the Golden Eagles down 1-0 after a LaTech run in the third inning, McIntyre picked up his double with one out that scored Tyler Boss and Chris Williams. Boss drew a walk to lead off the inning, moving to third on a double to the left-center field wall from Williams.

 

Two batters later, McIntyre cleared the bases with his double down the left field line, just out of reach of the diving first baseman.

 

The scoring wasn’t over in the inning for ORU, as Logan Domenico reached on a misplayed ball by the LaTech second baseman, allowing McIntyre to move over to third.

 

ORU then called for a squeeze with Kevin Cho at the plate. The bunt was perfectly placed, and McIntyre beat the throw home from the LaTech pitcher to put the Golden Eagles up, 3-0. The final run of the inning came as Matt Brandy singled to center, scoring Domenico from second. Cho was eventually caught in a rundown to end the inning.

 

LaTech picked up its second run of the game in the bottom of the sixth. Ryan Gebhardt singled to lead the inning off, eventually coming around to score on a single by Taylor Terrasas.

 

In the top of the eighth, with Brandy on third, Williams at second and Brandon Healy standing on first, McIntryre stuck again, singling to left field to score Brandy and Williams.

 

Following an easy bottom of the eighth for Guillermo Trujillo, who came on in relief in the sixth and pitched three full innings with two hits and an earned run, the Golden Eagles tacked on three more runs in the top of the ninth.

 

With one out, Trevino was hit by a pitch, moved to second on an error by the third baseman that allowed Nate Goro to reach. With Boss at the plate, Goro stole second just before Boss was plunked by a pitch to load the bases.

 

After Williams drew a bases loaded walk to push in Trevino, Healy singled up the middle, scoring both Goro and Boss, extending the Golden Eagle lead to 9-2.

 

The Bulldogs added one more run in the bottom of the ninth as Jacob Derouen drove in Taylor Love. Love reached to lead the inning off after Alec Smith struck him out, but the pitch was wild, allowing Love to reach.

 

Tim Zufall got the start on the mound, picking up his second win of the season, throwing five innings, one hit and one run, which was unearned. Smith allowed a hit and a run in two-thirds of ninth and Jeff Gunter allowed a hit and picked up the final out of the ball game.

 

The Golden Eagles rattled off eight hits in the contest, including the doubles off the bat of McIntyre and Williams. Domenico, Trevino and Joey Migliaccio added singles in the game.

 

The series win was head coach Ryan Folmar’s first as a head coach.

 

ORU is scheduled for mid-week contest on Tuesday afternoon at Wichita State, weather permitting. First pitch is scheduled for 3 p.m.
