GLVC Player of the Year Ryan Colombo threw a complete game and the Drury Panthers scored 7 runs in the sixth inning in a 9-1 win over St. Joseph’s in Thursday’s opening round of the conference tournament at U.S. Baseball Park.
Colombo (9-2) allowed just a first-inning solo home run and scattered four other hits, striking out five Pumas in his third complete game of the season.
Drury bats remained quiet until the sixth, where the Panthers batted around, plating seven runners on seven hits.
The Panthers will play Bellarmine at 4 pm Friday in Ozark as the double-elimination tournament continues.
