Kats Eliminate Troy

By  | 

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Luke Prihoda earned his national best 18th
save today as Sam Houston State rallied for a 5-to-4 win to
eliminate Troy from the N-C-A-A Oxford regional.
Prihoda worked two and two-thirds innings to help the
fourth-seeded Bearkats (38-24) pick up their first regional win
since 19-96.
Sam Houston State will play the Mississippi-Southern Miss loser
tomorrow (Sunday).
Stephen Price (1-0) earned the win with two and two-thirds
innings of hitless relief after replacing starter Jesse Marshall.
Joe Hallahan (5-7) gave up eight hits in six innings and took
the loss for Troy (35-26).
Clint Robinson and Edgar Ramirez had two hits apiece for Troy.
The Trojans, who committed five errors in an opening-round loss
to Southern Miss, could not overcome three errors against the
Bearkats that led to three unearned runs.
Keith Stein, Todd Sebek and Verbick led the Bearkats with two
hits apiece.
