Fuller’s shutout keeps Grenadiers alive in KIAC Baseball Tournament

Grenadiers' men's tennis team bows out of KIAC Tournament

NEW ALBANY — Elliot Fuller, the 2013 Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Year, threw a complete-game, six-hit shutout as the Grenadiers staved off elimination in the 2013 KIAC Baseball Tournament Friday night with a 2-0 home victory over Brescia.

After dropping the opening game of the day 10-4 to Point Park University, the Grenadiers needed a win to stay alive in the tournament.

IU Southeast (27-26) loaded the bases in the fourth inning when A.J. Doyle drew a walk to make it 1-0. The Grenadiers would add another run in the fifth when Brad Walker scored as the Bearcats tried to pick a runner off first base. Walker slid in ahead of the tag to put the Grenadiers up two.

Fuller (6-2) would cruise the rest of the way and send IU Southeast to a rematch with Point Park at 1 p.m. today at the Koetter Sports Baseball Complex in the first tournament championship game. If the Grenadiers, a second title game between the two teams will take place at 4 p.m. at the Koetter Complex.

IU Southeast and Point Park have met five times this season, including the KIAC Tournament. Point Park leads the series, 3-2. Three out of the five decisions were decided by a total of six runs.
