NAIA-Scholarship Siena Heights Survives @AdrianBaseball Comeback in Walk-Off, 4-3

ADRIAN, Mich.--Pinch-hitter Austin Hauck walked with the bases loaded to force home Daniel Muller for the walk-off win, as host Siena Heights thwarted a valiant Adrian College comeback, 4-3, in a non-conference baseball game on Thursday.

THE BASICS
= Final Scoreline: Siena Heights 4-9-0, Adrian 3-10-1 

= Location: SHU Baseball Diamond, Adrian, Mich.; Weather: Sunny, 53 degrees

= Records: Siena Heights Saints 14-16 overall, Adrian Bulldogs 15-8 overall

FOR ADRIAN
= Seniors Gunnar GlodichJeff Gertley paced the Bulldogs' 10-hit attack with two apiece and combined for three walks.

THE OPPOSITION
Zack Dunlop led SHU at the plate by going 2-for-4, including a double.

Freddy Jehle and Carson Wlad also doubled.

HOW IT HAPPENED
= Muller led off the bottom of the ninth inning with a single, advanced to second base on a wild pitch and moved to third on a ground out. The next two batters were intentionally walked to load the bases before Hauck reached on ball four to bring in the game-winning run with one out.

= Trailing 3-0 in the top of the ninth, Adrian scored three times on two hits and two walks. Junior Ryan Dorow had a RBI-groundout, classmate Ian Mikowski crossed the plate on a wild pitch, and Gertley tied the score with a single to right-center field to bring home freshman pinch-runner Jordan Torrento.

= SHU led 2-0 in the third frame after Jehle hit a RBI-double to left field and Joe Williams plated Jehle from second base after trying to stretch his hit to left-center on a double himself.

= In the next inning, Wlad made it a three-run lead with a double to right-center.

BEYOND THE BOX SCORE
= Adrian outhit the Saints 10 to 9, but left 11 runners on base compared to four by SHU.

= Junior Trevor Stevens made his Adrian season debut on the mound, throwing two scoreless innings allowing one hit and getting two strikeouts.

= Glodich is 7-for-13 and hitting .538 in his last four outings, with seven runs scored, four runs batted in and three walks out of the No. 8 hole in the lineup. His .419 batting verage would rate first on the team and rank among the best in the conference if he had the qualifying number of plate appearances.

UP NEXT
= Adrian resumes Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association action this weekend when it travels to Alma on Saturday (1 and 3:30 p.m.) before the Scots return the home games to Nicolay Field on Sunday (1 and 3:30 p.m.).
