Grambling stuns No. 5 ranked Rice

in

HOUSTON, Texas — Grambling State University jumped on the scoreboard for three unearned runs in the top of the first inning and hung-on for a 5-4 upset victory over the No. 5 nationally ranked Rice baseball team Sunday afternoon at Reckling Park in Houston.
The Tigers (11-7) took advantage of two Rice fielding errors, and made the most of two free baserunners in their first time up. Chris Wolfe led off the game and reached on an Owl fielding error and both of the next two batters, Joe Gill Jr. and Darren Farmer were both hit by a pitch on consecutive pitches. Cleanup batter Thomas Brown III reached on another fielding error that allowed Wolfe to score with the bases still loaded. Gill Jr. scored a ground out to the right side and Farmer then came home on a passed ball. Grambling was in front 3-0 without recording a base hit in the inning.

Women’s Empowerment is the theme for the 2012 Women’s History Month celebration.
