MOBILE, Ala. – The University of South Alabama had four players with at least three hits as the Brown baseball team fell to the Jaguars, 21-1, on Sunday to close out the four-game series at Stanky Field.

Brown drops to 0-4 on the season, while South Alabama improves to 9-3 overall.

Sophomore Marc Sredojevic (Mendham, N.J.) paced the Brown offense as he went 2-for-3 at the plate and scored one run. Junior Kevin Guthrie (Sarasota, Fla.) allowed five runs over three innings with a pair of strikeouts in the loss, while Jared Gates tossed six innings of shutout ball for the home side to pick up the win.

South Alabama used an eight-run fifth inning to build a 17-run lead after six frames. Brown scored its lone run in the top of the seventh when sophomore Robert Henry (Cranston, R.I.) singled up the middle to send in Sredojevic and put the Bears on the board. The Jaguars added four more runs in the bottom half of the frame.

Brown returns to action on Saturday, March 7 when they play Central Connecticut State (11 a.m.) and Northeastern (2 p.m.) on the campus of CCSU in New Britain, Conn.
