Memphis hands 5-1 road loss to Redhawks
MEMPHIS -- Three Memphis University pitchers limited Southeast Missouri State to eight singles, as the Tigers claimed the opener of a two-game series 5-1 Friday afternoon.
The Tigers were not in a generous mood: The pitching trio issued just one walk and was backed by errorless defense.
Offensively, Memphis banged out 14 hits, including four for extra bases. The big blow was a two-out, two-run home run by Cory Barton in the sixth inning that extended a Tigers lead to 4-1.
Aaron Rave and Phillip Riley accounted for half of the Redhawks' hits with two apiece.
Jamie McAlister (2-4) allowed 13 hits in six innings. James Hibbard and Michael Taylor combined for two innings of one-hit relief.
Memphis starter Scott McGregor (1-2) allowed six hits in six innings.
After Memphis (10-6) scored a run in the first, Southeast (6-9) pulled even in the third on a sacrifice fly by Asif Shah.
The Tigers went ahead for good in the bottom of the fourth, scoring on a bases-loaded double play.
