Panama City, FL---Gulf Coast entered Thursday looking for a three game sweep of Pensacola.

In the first two contests of the series, the Commodores had won each ballgame by a combined score of 18-2.

In the highlights attached above, it's picked up from the bottom of the seventh, two outs, Commodores up two when Dalton Kelly grounds one to first, but the Pirates can't complete the play. Chandler Durham comes in to score. It's now a 4-1 GC lead.

A lead the bullpen had no trouble protecting. Kelly on for starter Cameron Ragsdale gets the strikeout.

Then, top of the ninth, Ryan Kozial comes on for the save and gets the pop up to end the ball game.

Gulf Coast moves to 27-8. 4-2 in conference, that puts them in a tie for first after Tallahassee beat Northwest Florida 6-5.
