THE FLATS – Keenan Innis ripped an RBI single up the middle with two outs in the seventh inning for #TeamWhite, which rallied to tie #TeamGold, 9-9, in Game 2 of Georgia Tech’s annual White-Gold Series at Russ Chandler Stadium on Sunday.
Daniel Spingola launched a grand slam home run to give #TeamGold a 9-8 lead in the top of the seventh, but Innis’ second hit and second RBI of the day allowed his team to draw even. The game ended in a 9-9 tie.
The final game of the White-Gold Series is set for Monday at 4 p.m. #TeamGold won Saturday’s game 7-6.
On the strength of Thomas Smith’s two-run homer in the first inning, #TeamWhite took a 2-0 lead to the fifth before the teams combined for 16 runs over the final three frames.
On the verge of elimination, #TeamWhite struck four times on six hits in the bottom of the sixth, only to see that lead evaporate in the seventh. Brandon Gold walked, Grant Wruble singled and Coleman Poje was hit by a pitch to set the stage for Spingola, who hammered the first offering he saw over the wall in right for the one-run cushion.
Spingola, Bailey and Kel Johnson did a bulk of #TeamGold’s damage as the 1-2-3 hitters in the order combined to go 9-for-15 Sunday with six RBI and five runs.
