Sun Belt Tournament: UALR stuns top-seeded Troy 4-2
Three games: All decided in extra innings.
And, after a lightning delay caused the final game to start at 10:20pm, the biggest thunderbolt came in game three.
Eighth seeded Arkansas-Little Rock, making its first tournament appearance since 2003, shocked top-seeded Troy, scoring twice in the 10th inning to beat the Trojans, 4-2.
Pitching, normally the undoing of the Trojans’ ball club, was stellar as Travis Henke allowed only seven hits over eight innings. Garrett Graziano (5-9) gave up just one hit over the final two frames.
Run scoring singles from Greg Garcia and Myles Parma were the difference in the game, which didn’t end until 1am.
UALR (1-0) faces WKU (1-0) today at 3pm. Troy (0-1) meets Florida Atlantic (0-1) tonight at 7pm.
