LORAIN, Ohio – Senior Josh Hungerman worked six strong innings on the mound for the Green team as they defeated the White team 3-1 on Saturday at The Pipe Yard.

The win gave the Green team the CSU Green-White Fall World Series championship 2-0 in a series shortened to best two-out-of-three because of inclement weather.

Hungerman allowed one unearned run on three hits to go along with two walks and ten strikeouts. Sophomore Solomon Haberkost earned the save by pitching a scoreless seventh inning, working around two walks and a single to work out of trouble.

Sophomore Josh Raggi took the loss, working three innings and allowing three runs (one earned) on five hits with one walk and two strikeouts. Junior Kyle McGuire came on in relief and pitched four innings, giving up only one hit with no walks and one strikeout.

Senior John Brown opened the scoring for the Green team with a solo home run to lead off the second inning. The White team was done in by a crucial third inning error with two outs that led to two unearned runs scoring and giving the Green team a 3-0 lead they would not relinquish.

Besides Brown’s home run, the Green team was also paced offensively by senior Brad Buell who had a single, a double, and scored a run and by sophomore Josh Lowe who added two singles and a run scored.

Junior Josh Federico paced the White team attack with two singles and a run scored. Sophomore Tom Carter and senior Brian Long also added singles for the White.

The series concludes the fall portion of the CSU baseball fall workout schedule.

The Vikings now begin winter workouts in preparation for their spring opener on February 20th at Georgia State.
