The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Fall World Series resumed on Friday afternoon with the Team Black evening the series against Team Green 11-2 in the best-of-three series.
Team Black wasted little time scoring eight runs in the first three innings taking a commanding lead which they didn't give up. The green squad did answer back with a run in the bottom of the fourth which was answered with two runs in the top of the fifth by Team Black making the score 10-1.
Both teams scored once more in the contest for a final score of 11-2.
Roy Ferdin for the black squad threw six innings of one-hit ball and allowed only one run.
"Ferdin had a good tempo going today which allowed the guys behind him to be on their feet and make plays for him," said head coach Scott Malone.
Offensively, Cory Ege continued to hit the ball as he had three more hits on Friday to give him five in the first two games.
"We tell our guys don't take losses home with them and how differently things can change. Black made some things happen today, got some good bounces and got the job done today resulting in a win," said Malone.
On the green side, Jacob Perales drove in both runs with two hits.
"As a coach its great when there is a lot riding on the last day of fall practice with this series tied at one apiece in this series," said Malone
