* Kaczmarski's Walk-Off Homer Gives UE 4-3 Win

Redshirt sophomore Kevin Kaczmarski kept the University of Evansville baseball team’s season alive with a three-run, walk-off homer in the bottom of the ninth to send the Purple Aces past Bradley, 4-3, in an elimination game in the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament Wednesday afternoon at Duffy Bass Field in Normal, Ill.

Kaczmarski led Evansville (23-33) by going 2-for-5 with the game-winning three-run long ball and a single.  Junior Jake Mahon also finished with a pair of hits, going 2-for-4 with a run scored.  Redshirt junior Johnny Day drove in the only other run for the Aces with an RBI ground out in the sixth.

Sophomore left-hander Kyle Freeland went the distance on the mound for UE to improve his record to 4-8.  Freeland allowed just three runs, two earned, on seven hits and struck out seven without issuing a walk.

Bradley scored the first run of the ballgame in the top of the third to grab a 1-0 lead, as MVC Joe Carter Player of the Year Mike Tauchman drove in Austin Jarvis, who was hit by a pitch earlier in the inning, with a two-out single to left center.

Evansville had a scoring opportunity in its half of the fourth, when Mahon led off the inning with a single and senior Jason Hockemeyer drew a walk to put runners on first and second with no outs.  After freshman Jonathan Ramon moved both runners into scoring position with a sacrifice bunt, Bradley (17-32) starter Brent Stong retired Day with an infield popup for the second out of the inning and thwarted the rally by getting redshirt sophomore Kyle Pollock to ground into an inning-ending double play.

The Brave added to their lead in the top of the fifth, when Jarvis led off the inning with a single to center and later scored on a one-out double down the right field line off the bat of David Compitello to give BU a 2-0 advantage.  With runners on the corner and just one out, Freeland got help from his defense, as the Aces turned a rare 5-3-2 double play.  Ramon fielded a ground ball a third and fired across the diamond for one out, before Day cut down Compitello trying to score at the plate.

UE got a run back in the bottom sixth to cut the Bradley lead to 2-1.  Mahon singled and Hockemeyer followed by getting hit by a pitch, before both moved into scoring position on another sacrifice bunt by Ramon.  Day then drove in Mahon with a hard grounder to short, before Stong limited the damage by getting freshman Shain Showers to fly out to center after he issued a walk to Pollock.

Bradley got an insurance run in the top of the eighth with a two-out rally to go up 3-1 by taking advantage of an Aces’ error.  Tauchman put himself in scoring position with a hustle double, moved to third on a wild pitch and scored on a throwing error by Showers.

The bottom of the ninth started when Pollock grounded out on a sharp grounder to third, but Showers gave the UE dugout life with a single to center to bring the tying run in Lasher to the plate.  Lasher then drew a five-pitch walk to set up Kaczmarski’s walk-off homer, a no-doubter to right center on a 2-1 pitch from Braves’ reliever Elliot Ashbeck.

Tauchman led BU’s offense by going 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored, while Jarvis finished 1-for-3 and scored twice.  Stong tossed 7.0 strong innings for Bradley, as he allowed just one run on four hits and struck out three around a pair of walks.

With the victory, Evansville stayed alive in the MVC Tournament and will once again face elimination tomorrow, when it plays either Illinois State or Missouri State at 12:30 p.m.
