Baseball Ekes Past Fontbonne 2-1 in Pitchers Duel


ST. LOUIS, Mo. – A lighting malfunction halted the second half of Tuesday night’s scheduled SLIAC double-header, but not before GC baseball managed a close 2-1 victory over Fontbonne in game one action.

Fontbonne University (11-14, 8-2 SLIAC) cited a “lighting malfunction” in the fourth inning of Tuesday’s nightcap that suspended play and forced a standstill that has been rescheduled for next Wednesday, April 18 in Greenville, Ill.  Preceding the delay, the Panthers took the opener 2-1 behind the arms of transfer Jared Massengill and junior Scotty Voyles.

Massengill, who has been hot offensively for the Black & Orange, took to the mound and pitched four innings and allowed only one run. Voyles relieved the slugger turned pitcher in the fifth and sealed the eventual 2-1 win.

Freshman first baseman Ryan Smith headlined the GC notables at the dish, raking in an RBI double that aided the team’s two-run posting.

Greenville College baseball (9-14, 7-3 SLIAC) will next travel to Elsah, Ill. on Friday, April 13 and begin the first of a three-game set against Principia College. Following Friday night’s tilt, the club will return home to Robert E. Smith field on Saturday and host PC in an afternoon pair to wrap up the SLIAC series.
