COLUMBIA — Rock Bridge baseball split a doubleheader Saturday, beating Eureka 9-8 and losing to Francis Howell 6-3. 

The Bruins fought back from a 6-0 first-inning deficit to defeat Eureka, taking the lead on a Kyle Teter RBI single in the bottom of the sixth inning. Rock Bridge brought 11 men to the plate in a six-run fourth inning, highlighted by a two-run single by Tanner Cooper. 

Rock Bridge tied the game at 8 on a botched pickoff turned double steal. Cooper was picked off first base, and the ensuing rundown lasted long enough for David Plain, who had been on third, to score.

Every Bruins starter recorded a hit and scored a run. Rightfielder Joe Barbee finished with three hits and an RBI.

Barbee collected two more hits in the loss to Francis Howell. Tanner Cooper had a hit and an RBI. Chandler Wyatt took the loss, dropping his record to 4-2 on the season. 

The loss to Francis Howell was the first loss for Rock Bridge since April 8.

The Bruins are 17-4 on the season.
