VCU seventh-inning rally spoils Kent’s strong outing, 5-4

vmi baseballThe VCU Rams scored five times in the seventh inning and held off the VMI Keydets, 5-4, in baseball action Tuesday night at The Diamond in Richmond, Va.

The Keydets (17-20) took a 3-0 lead to the seventh behind Zak Kent’s five-plus shutout innings, but the Rams (22-15) opened the frame with five consecutive hits.

A three-run double by Dylan Isquirdo tied the game and a RBI groundout by Logan Farrar gave VCU the lead for good. Paul Witt added a RBI single later in the inning, and although the Keydets got a run back in the eighth, VCU closer Sam Donko retired the side in order in the ninth as the Rams held on.

On the mound, Kent got a no-decision despite pitching a shutout into the sixth. Derek Tremblay (1-1) took the loss as he was charged with four runs in the decisive seventh, while the winning pitcher was Hayden Moore (1-1) who allowed one hit over two relief innings.

The Keydets jumped ahead in the second, when Mason Adamson laced a two-run triple down the left field line. VMI added on with a single run in the fifth, when Peyton Maddox beat out a double play grounder and a run scored.
