Lakeland, Fla.- The Southeastern University Red baseball team took on the Black Team Thursday evening in game one of the Fall World Series. The Red Team came away with the victory late in the game securing a 4-1 victory.
The Black Team opened up in the bottom of the first with a great opportunity to score after a throwing error and a walk. However the Red Team's starter Matthew Selmer struck out the Black squad's three and four hitters looking, and then was able to get the five hitter to ground out to second base to avoid the threat.
In the top of the second the Red Team plated the first run of the game, Daniel Mims led the inning off with a lead off walk, Mims came around to score when catcher Robert Fram hit a two out fastball from Dimitri Nunez into center field for a single. The game remained tied until the sixth inning as starting pitchers Selmer and Nunez dominated the hitting.
In the sixth Mac LeBoeuf led the inning off with a single for the Black team, Mac advanced to second on a passed ball, and later scored on a Bryan Muniz single to knot the game at one a piece.
After a brief rain delay the Red Team came out in the top of the eighth and scored three runs. Fram got it going as he doubled down the left field line to plate two, and then was followed up by Phil Kish who doubled to score Fram.
