Oct. 20, 2010
Creede Simpson hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the first and the White Team pitching staff made it stand up in a 3-2 win in the opening game of the Auburn baseball team's Fall World Series.
Derek Varnadore was the winning pitcher for the White Team, throwing five innings and allowing just one run on three hits and two walks, striking out four.
The White Team did all their damage off of Grey Team starter Jon Luke Jacobs in the first as Casey McElroy (1-for-3) collected a one-out single, Tony Caldwell worked a walk and Simpson (1-for-3) homered.
Jacobs took the loss for the Grey Team, surrendering just the two first-inning hits and walk while striking out three in five innings of work.
Will Kendall followed Jacobs and allowed a hit and struck out two in an inning.
Game two starts at 3pm on Friday, prior to the annual Celebrity Home Run Derby, which starts at 6pm. Gates for the Derby open at 5pm and a $1 donation is required at the gates, with all proceeds going to the Boys and Girls Club of Lee County.
