TALLAHASSEE — Alec Aleywine had a game to remember, Gulf Coast’s bullpen continued its dominant performance and the Commodores rallied Tuesday for a 13-4 victory over Tallahassee in Panhandle Conference baseball.


Aleywine, a freshman from Bozeman, had two singles, two doubles, and home run and drove in seven runs as Gulf Coast exploded for 18 hits and overcame an early 4-1 deficit.


J.T. Duncan, a freshman from Bay, had three hits to equal his season total and Alec Wisely had three hits, scored four runs and knocked in one. Eight Gulf Coast players hit safely.


The seventh-ranked Commodores, 21-6, 2-3, also had their bullpen extend its streak of scoreless innings to 19. Trey Leonard, Greg Loukinen, Charlie Greenich and Jackson Cullen came on in relief of starter Dylan Cyphert, who left in the fourth inning after walking five batters and yielding only two hits.


Leonard was the winning pitcher when Gulf Coast rallied with four runs to take a 7-4 lead in the top of the sixth inning. Cullen silenced a base-loaded, no-outs situation in the bottom of the ninth inning to keep the shutout streak intact.


Gulf Coast pitchers combined to give up only four hits, but did walk 11, hit two batters and commit a balk against the Eagles, 15-16, 0-5.


This was a game, however, where Aleywine and teammates were outhitting most of their teammates’ mistakes.

The teams meet again at 4 p.m. Thursday before playing a doubleheader at 1 p.m. Saturday at Bill Frazier Field.
