Gallaudet and Dean battle to a tie in second game of doubleheader

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University baseball team went toe-to-toe with
Dean College in the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader at a cold and
blustery Hoy Field. The two teams exchanged the lead seven times before
the game was ended, due to darkness, in a 15-15 tie after six innings of
play.

Gallaudet (2-5-1) dropped the first game 10-7 in seven innings.

Game 1: Dean 10, Gallaudet 7
Three different Bison had RBI hits in the bottom of the fourth to cut
Dean’s lead down from 8-4 to 8-7. The visiting Bulldogs (1-0-1) jumped out
a to a quick 5-0 lead before Gallaudet got on the scoreboard in the bottom
of the second inning.

GU added three runs in the third and fourth innings before Dean plated two
insurance runs in the top of the sixth inning.

Senior Kyle Gumm (Dallas, Texas) went 3-for-4 at the plate and scored a
run. Junior shortstop Cameron Upton (Vicksburg, Miss.) drove in two runs.

Sophomore Frank Diaz (Far Rockaway, N.Y.) took the loss as he pitched 5.2
innings and allowed 10 runs (three earned) on seven hits, four walks and
struck out four.

Game 2: Gallaudet 15, Dean 15
Gallaudet scored at least one run in every inning as the Bison plated 15
runs, collected 13 hits which included six doubles and one triple, while
driving in 11 runs.

GU had a chance to win the game in the bottom of the sixth inning.
Gallaudet was trailing, 15-13, but quickly tied the game thanks to a Dean
error and an Upton RBI double to right field The Bison had runners in
scoring position, second and third base, with no outs and the game tied at
15. The next three Bison batters struck out, grounded out to the pitcher
and flied out to the outfield to end the marathon game that took three
hours, 21 minutes to play six innings.

The Bison tied the game 1-1 in the bottom of the first and took their
first lead, 5-2, in the bottom of the second. GU doubled its run total
after the fourth when the Bison led the Bulldogs, 10-5. Senior first
baseman Justin Strong (Charlotte, N.C.) came through with a two-run double
to left field in the fourth. He added a second two-run double in the
fifth.

Dean went through six different pitchers while Gallaudet started senior
Dylan Hayes (Endicott, N.Y.) who got GU into the fifth inning before
freshman Dante Paulone (Fishers, Ind.) came in from the outfield to close
out the game on the mound for 1.2 innings.

Gumm continued his impressive day as he went 3-for-4, scored three runs,
knocked in two runs, walked once, stole three bases and hit a triple.

Upton went 4-for-4, drove in two runs and scored twice.
