What a comeback for FAU today, the Owls trailed until the 8th inning when they scored two runs to take a 4-3 lead over the Ragin’ Cajuns. Mike Gipson improved to 5-0 with eight strong inning of nine hit, three run baseball. The right-hander did not walk a batter and struck out five. Gipson has already surpassed last season’s win total of four.
Here are some of the highlights.
Top 4th – The Andy Mee (pictured) train keeps rolling. The junior hit his fifth home run of the season and tied the game at 1-1 with this moonshot over the left field wall.
Top 7th – Anthony Mesa keeps providing pop for FAU at the bottom of the lineup. The centerfielder hit his 3rd home run of the season to bring FAU within 3-2.
Top 8th – FAU ties the game at 3-3 with a Colby Gratton ground rule double. The next batter Nick Delguidice gave the Owls their first lead of the game with a sac fly.
Bottom 9th – Andy Mee slams the door with a perfect ninth. The do-it-all JUCO transfer now has three saves on the season.
