Los Angeles - UCLA junior Eric Taylor, Jr. scored from first base on a single by senior Josh Roenicke in the bottom of the eighth inning to give the Gold Team a 5-4 win over the Blue Team in Game 2 of the best-of-five intrasquad series at Jackie Robinson Stadium Wednesday afternoon. The Blue-Gold Series is now tied at 1-1.

Junior Will Penniall led the game off for the Blue Team with a double and eventually scored later in the inning, giving the Blue team an early 1-0 lead in the first.

With no one on and two outs in the bottom of the second inning, freshman Jermaine Curtis singled, stole a base, and scored to tie the game at 1-1 after senior Anthony Norman singled for the Gold Team. Norman then stole second base and scored on a RBI triple by freshman Brandon Crawford.

Senior Brett McMillan's RBI double in the third inning scored junior Tim Stewart for the Blue Team and tied the game at 2-2.

The Gold Team took the lead again after freshman Cody Decker hit his fourth home run of the fall, a solo shot over the wall in left center off junior Brian Schroeder. Schroeder lasted four innings, allowed seven hits and four runs, while striking out one.

With no one on and two out, the Gold Team found a way to score a run in the fourth inning. Norman again singled, stole a base, and scored on a Crawford single. Norman and Crawford combined to go 4-for-5 with two runs and three RBI, as the eight and nine hitters in the Gold lineup.

The Gold Team stole four bases in the game.

Trailing 4-2 in the sixth inning, senior Sean Carpenter was hit by a pitch, later moved to third base on a double by freshman Ryan Babineau, and scored on a sacrifice fly by freshman Corey Ashner. With the tying run on third base, Penniall, who was 3-for-6 in the series, hit the ball on the screws, but right at right at senior Josh Roenicke for the final out of the inning.

Junior Paul Schmidt of the Blue team kept his team in the ball game, throwing three scoreless innings of relief work.

In the top of the eighth inning, Gold manager junior Hector Ambriz summoned in Roenicke to close the game, but the Blue Team had other ideas.

Sophomore Brady Dolan led off the eighth with a single and went to third on an errant pickoff attempt. Carpenter walked, but Babineau followed with a strikeout for the first out. Ashner singled into center, tying the game at 4-4.

A wild pitch moved the runners to second and third with Penniall at the plate. Roenicke got Penniall to pop out to second, and after Curtis made a fine play at third base to retire freshman Eddie Murray, as the Gold team had dodged a bullet.

Freshman Andy Suiter came in to pitch the eighth for the Blue Team and promptly struck out freshman Dustin Quist for the first out. Taylor then singled, setting the stage for Roenicke. Roenicke singled to center, and Taylor aggressively ran to third base. Dolan overran the ball in center field allowing Taylor to score, to tie the series at a game a piece.

Game 3 of the Blue-Gold Series is Thursday, Nov. 17 at 4:45 p.m. in Jackie Robinson Stadium. Junior Tyson Brummett will start for the Gold Team against junior Kevin Brophy of the Blue Team.
