Tulane baseball drops series opener to Cincinnati

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Emerson Gibbs pitched his heart out last night against Cincinnati and yet, it wasn't enough. His first career Friday night start and he couldn't get enough run support in a 2-1 loss to the Bearcats.

The loss was also Tulane's first series opening home loss of the season.

Tulane (21-12, 3-3) fell behind Cincinnati (17-18, 5-2) in the top of the third, when the Bearcats' Cole Murphy led the frame off with a solo home run before Kyle Mottice scored on an RBI-single by Connor McVey.

The Greenies cut the lead in half with a solo home run in the bottom of the fourth by Jeremy Montalbano, but did not manage to reach home throughout the remainder of the contest.

These two teams will continue this series later today from Turchin Stadium.
