MOBILE, Ala. – The Spring Hill College baseball team defeated the Tuskegee College Golden Tigers by a score of 7-3 in a non-conference game at historic Stan Galle Field on Tuesday afternoon.

Spring Hill held a 3-0 lead after picking up two runs in the 2nd inning and another in the 3rd frame when Tuskegee (7-13) answered back with two runs in the top of the 4th inning that featured a two-out RBI bunt single down the 1st base line by left fielder Cam Duncan who avoided the tag with an acrobatic move while lunging for the bag.

The Badgers added single runs in the 4th and 5th innings via a bases-loaded two-out single through the hole on the left side by catcher Roy Moulder and two-out single up the middle by second baseman Brian Sims.

Tiger first baseman Timothy Brock Jr made it a 5-3 game with a run-scoring single to left in the 6th inning, but SHC plated two runs in the bottom of the frame when Cyrus Beermann's grounder to 2nd base was thrown wide of 1st base allowing right fielder Taylor Eads and courtesy runner Austyn Jacques to scamper home.

SHC starter Christian Bahlinger (1-0) set down the first nine hitters he faced en route to his first win of the year. He allowed six hits with a walk and two strikeouts in 5.1 innings of work before surrendering the mound to Robert Quinn who allowed two hits in 2.2 innings with a walk and four strikeouts.

Eugene Mobota (0-2) lasted just two innings with five hits, two walks and a strikeout as the Tigers used five pitchers in the game.

At the plate, Sims and Moulder both enjoyed three-hit, one-RBI days while left fielder Garrett Webb added two more safeties and an RBI. SHC slapped 11 hits as a team with Eads connecting on a leadoff double in the 3rd inning.

Duncan had two hits with an RBI on the afternoon to pace the Tigers.

Spring Hill (19-11) will next play at the LSU-Alexandria Generals (18-9) in a three-game non-conference series this weekend beginning with a single on Friday at 6 p.m. and wrapping up in a doubleheader on Saturday at 1 p.m.
