Luke Maile ripped a single to LF and then came up grabbing his hamstring. Williams doubles to RCF but Maile stops at 3B. May be hurt?

Boy do we need JT to come through here...
4-3 on WP... come on JT
A wild pitch by Starn scores Maile, who somehow scores despite really laboring down the line; Kent St. 4, UK 3. That's all UK gets, but Starn nearing 100 pitches.
Now UK's other catcher, Michael Williams, takes a shot on a pitch in the dirt. His backup is Maile, who is at 1B and already hurting
Kent State cleanup hitter George Roberts came into the game hitting .368 with 18 doubles. He's now 4-for-4 today with two doubles
Phillips works around Roberts' 2-out double to get UK through T-6th trailing 4-3.
Three really poor at bats in the 6th by UK (two K's, pop up to 2B) allows Starn to throw just 10 pitches in inning; Kent 4, UK 3 - T7th
It was UK's 7-8-9 hitters in that half-inning but you still have to make an ace you have on ropes work harder than 10 pitches in inning
Wind helps a long fly ball to RF by Kent's Alex Miklos. Zac Zellers misplays the carom off the wall and Miklos ends up on 3B w/ 2 out
Phillips strands Miklos at 3B with a fly out to RF. Phillips has retired 9 of last 11 batters. Kent St. 4, UK 3; B-7th
Cousi with a lead off 3B!
Oops, thought I had updated. Cousino ripped a liner to RF that skipped off top of diving RF glove for a triple. That ended Starn's day. McCarthy grounds out to SS on first pitch but Cousino was off with contact and scores to tie the game at 4.

Kent State doesn't allow anything else but Cousino's triple and McCarthy's RBI groundout make this a new game entering 8th; tied at 4
Henderson is sticking with Alex Phillips to start the 8th but Tim Peterson has been warming for last 2 innings. He's ready if needed.
Phillips walks David Lyon to put runners on 1st/2nd with 1 out. Henderson going to Tim Peterson w/ George Roberts (4-for-4, 2 2B) up
Roberts does it again. Lines an 0-2 pitch into RCF to score the go-ahead run. He's 5-for-5 with 2 RBI; Kent St. 5, UK 4; T-8th
UK has wild play to end 8th. Grounder to 1B, who throws home to get runner at 3B in rundown. He's tagged out. Flip to 3B to get trail runner; But UK must score in final 6 outs. Trail 5-4 entering B-8th
Why pitch to him?
Michael Williams leads off the 8th with a line drive single up middle. Riddle coming up. SAC bunt situation?
J.T. Riddle does his job with SAC bunt to move Williams to 2B. Now it's up to ucas Witt and Zac Zellers to bring Williams home w/ tying run
Why pitch to him?
Why pitch to him?
Easy, walking him would have loaded bases and put go ahead run on 3B. Too many ways a guy can score from there with 1 out.
Lucas Witt grounds out to 2B, moving Williams to third. Now it's up to Zellers with 2 outs.
Zellers walks. Matt Reida coming up. He's 4 for his last 35, but does have a single today. Kent State w/ another pitching change.
Kent State brings in a lefty to face the lefty hitting Reida. Looks like UK will counter with right-handed pinch hitter Thomas Bernal, who is 8-of-19 on year.
