No. 2 West Florida defeats Christian Brothers to remain perfect in Gulf South play

Tyler Halstead

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Second-ranked West Florida defeated Christian Brothers 3-1 Friday afternoon in a mixture of cold and rainy conditions.

The Argonauts (11-2, 6-0 Gulf South Conference) extended their winning streak to seven games and remained the only undefeated team in conference play.

“I thought it was a good victory today in the rain,” UWF coach Mike Jeffcoat said. “DeLorenzo threw a good game. He got out of a couple of jams, and Stevens closed it out with a 1-2-3 ninth for his fifth save. So, I’m proud of the victory on the road.”

Jordan DeLorenzo (4-0) pitched eight innings, allowing one earned run and four hits with seven strikeouts. The one earned run raised his season ERA to 1.28.

Freshman Tyler Halstead drove in UWF’s first run of the game in the first at bat of his UWF career in the second inning with an RBI single through the right side. UWF added two more on an RBI single from Austin Southall and an RBI groundout from Chase Kiefer in the eighth inning.

Junior Alex Stevens had a pair of strikeouts for his fifth save of the season.
