Grand Slams Highlight Red-White World Series Game 1

Frankie Ratcliff drives in five RBI in today's win

Oct. 22, 2013

HOUSTON - Grand slams by seniors Frankie Ratcliff and Jacob Lueneburg highlight Game 1 of Houston Baseball's Red-White World Series on Tuesday afternoon at Cougar Field as the White Team rallied to earn a 9-7 victory over the Red Team.

The series will continue on Wednesday. Game time is slated for 4 p.m.

A game that saw a lot of offense and solid defense ended in a two-run game as both teams exchanged leads throughout the eight-inning contest.

The White Team jumped out to an early lead in the first with two runs on an RBI-single by Ratcliff and a sacrifice fly that nearly cleared the left field wall off the bat of sophomore Jacob Campbell. White added a third run in the third inning on an RBI-single by sophomore Ashford Fulmer - plating sophomore Kyle Survance - who crossed home for the second time in the game.

Red narrowed the lead with a run in the latter half of the third on an RBI-groundout by junior Michael Pyeatt.

Survance drew a bases loaded walk in the fourth to put White up 4-1, but the Red Team bounced back with a two-run double by freshman Gino Marucci to make it a 4-3 game through four complete innings. The hitting barrage continued for the Red Team when Lueneburg cranked a one-out grand slam in the bottom of the fifth - giving Red a 7-4 lead heading into the top of the sixth.

Houston's offense powered up once again when Ratcliff broke open the game - allowing White to reclaim the lead at 8-7 with a monstrous grand slam to right center.

That lead held as White went on to plate one final run on an RBI-single by senior Landon Appling.

Ratcliff led the offense on White with a 2-for-4 effort with a walk and five RBI - which came off a grand slam and single. Fulmer finished 2-for-3 with a RBI, triple and walk, while Lueneburg led the charge on the Red Team with a 1-for-2 effort with a grand slam and two walks, while driving in four. 

The Cougars saw a multitude of arms in Game 1 as sophomore Jake Lemoine started for the Red Team and sophomore Jared West made the start for White.

Out of the pen, the Red Team saw freshmen Cade Killingsworth, Nathan Jackson, Micah Edwards, junior Ryan Vruggink and senior Tyler Ford, while the White Team saw junior Kyle Dowdy and seniors Daniel Smith and Chase Wellbrock.

"Today was a good game," Ratcliff said. "Baseball is a game with a lots of ups and downs. We [White] jumped out to an early lead, but a big hit by Lueneburg on the opposite team put them up, but we just kept battling. You play nine innings and you never know what is going to happen later on in the game. We are all just trying to get good pitches, have good at bats and help your team win."

The Red-White World Series is free and open to the public.
