College Baseball Roundup: Akron Zips edge Charlotte 49ers with late rally

Trailing by two heading to the ninth inning, Akron scored three runs – two on a game-tying sacrifice fly – to come back for a 5-4 series-clinching victory against Charlotte on Sunday afternoon.

Daulton Mosbarger started the inning with a walk and move to third on Dan Lawrence’s single. Lawrence’s groundball was right to Charlotte shortstop Luke Gibbs, who appeared ready to start a 6-4-3 double play, but the last bounce shot up and over Gibbs’ head to put Zips (4-2) on the corners. Joey Havrilak followed with a hit by pitch, which forced the 49ers to bring in Logan Sherer.

Derek Gallello had two hits for the 49ers (1-2). Trevor Gay took the loss for Charlotte, giving up three runs on three hits with a walk in 1 2/3 innings.
