Gulf Coast trailed 5-3 headed into the eighth inning of the opener but pushed across four runs to surge ahead.

 

Ian Goff (So., George County/George County) got plunked with the bases loaded to drive in the first run, and Chase Rhodes' grounder was misplayed by the Co-Lin shortstop to allow two runs to score and give Gulf Coast a 6-5 lead.

 

Tyler Evans (So., D'Iberville/D'Iberville) got a sacrifice fly for the final run of the inning.

 

After the Wolfpack got a run back in the bottom of the eighth, Matt Muhleisen (Fr., Holy Cross/Harvey, La.) squeezed Logan McGrew (Fr., Sumrall/Sumrall) home. Champ Davison (So., Pascagoula/Pascagoula) singled in the final run.
