ODU Baseball Team Rides the Shoulders of its Pitching Staff to Claim a 2-1 victory over South Carolina

By Harry Minium


It was a gut-wrenching game, where every pitch, every at bat, every ground ball mattered.

Old Dominion University and the University of South Carolina matched off in a tense, three-hour pitching dual Saturday night at Founders Park, and although ODU's stock in trade has been its hot bats, it was the Monarch pitching staff that gave ODU one of the biggest victories in school history.

Riding on the shoulders of starter Ryne Moore, who pitched seven brilliant innings, the Monarchs defeated the Gamecocks 2-1 before a crowd of 7,315, the largest ever to see an ODU team play.
