RICHMOND, Ind. – Sophomore Alec Bryan‘s bases loaded sacrifice fly to center field with one out in the bottom of the 11th inning lifted Earlham College baseball to a 5-4 victory over Wabash College, Wednesday night at Sadler Stadium.

Bryan sent a fly ball to straightaway center field, allowing Kendal Bakerto tag up at third and cross for the winning run.

Wabash tied the see-saw contest at 4-4 in the top of the ninth on Tyler Downing’s RBI single, erasing the 4-3 lead that Earlham had grabbed in the eighth inning. Dre Davis stroked a two-out bases loaded single to score Addison Robertson and Marc Gendreau with the go-ahead runs.

Spencer Owen picked up the win in a two inning, no-hit, three-strikeout performance. Kyle Gorman got the start and allowed three runs on nine hits with three strikeouts in the no-decision appearance.

Kevin O’Donnell took the hard-luck loss for the Little Giants in the short, two-thirds-of-an-inning stint on the mound.

Earlham returns to Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference play on Friday, April 13, when the Quakers travel to Defiance, Ohio, to face Defiance College.
