NSU baseball uses long ball to split with UCO

EDMOND — The Northeastern State baseball team blasted seven home runs en route to a doubleheader split with Central Oklahoma Tuesday afternoon at Simmons Field.

The RiverHawks moved their record to 19-16 overall and 19-16 in the MIAA, while the Bronchos are now 19-16 overall and 15-15 in the league.

Seniors Kegan Knight and Jordan Dallalio joined junior Cody Robinson with two home runs each. Knight hit both of his in the first game, Robinson had two in the second game, and Dallalio hit one in both games. Senior Chad Davidson also recorded his first-career grand slam.

Robinson leads the MIAA with 14 home runs this season and is second with 44 runs batted in.

NSU 12, UCO 5

Knight hit a two-run shot in the top of the first and Northeastern State never trailed in the series opener. The victory gave the RiverHawks three-straight against the Bronchos this season.

Sophomore Kyle Shambaugh threw a complete-game five hitter to improve to 2-1 on the year. He struck out 10 batters and walked just four, while allowing five runs on five hits.

All of NSU’s top eight batters recorded at least one hit and scored at least one run. Knight was 4-for-4 with four runs batted in, three runs scored and two home runs. Davidson only had one hit, but he used it to drive home four members of his team in the fifth inning.

Edgar Lopez (4-3) was saddled with the loss for UCO after allowing nine runs on nine hits in 5.1 innings. He struck out six and walked one. Joe Hollowell tossed the final 1.2 frames and gave up three runs on three hits.

Two of Central Oklahoma’s five hits came off the bat of Cesar Wong, both of which were solo home runs.

UCO 7, NSU 6 (second game)

The RiverHawks took a 6-4 lead into the bottom of the ninth, but a three-run rally allowed the Bronchos to escape with the split.
