ORU clinches SHSU series with 7-2 win

HUNTSVILLE, Texas —  Drew Bowen got some run support on Saturday afternoon as the Golden Eagles rolled past Sam Houston State, 7-2, to clinch the series.

Bowen went 8.1 innings and allowed just four hits in the ball game. He finished with four strikeouts en route to his second victory of the season.

The Golden Eagles improved their record to 13-23 overall and 8-6 in conference play. They moved into a tie for third in the conference standings with the Bearkats as they fell to 8-6 in conference action and 22-17 overall.

ORU, SHSU and Lamar are within a game of first place as Southeastern Louisiana, Stephen F. Austin and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi hold the top spot with 9-5 conference records.

One of the top hitters in the lineup with runners in scoring position, senior Nate Goro struck again in the top of the fourth with a double over the center fielder’s head to score Jose Trevino and Tyler Boss.

Trevino reached base two spots before Goro with a single to right and Boss drew a walk to set up the double.

Goro is hitting .305 this season with runners in scoring position, second only to Logan Domenico who entered the game with a .351 average.

In the bottom of the fifth, the Bearkats cut the ORU lead to 2-1 with a pair of back-to-back doubles down both lines. At the plate with Luke Plucheck on second, Ryan O’Hearn put the ball in the right field corner to score Plucheck.

After O’Hearn advanced to third on a groundout, he was gunned down trying to score on a wild pitch. The pitch trickled away from the plate, but Trevino made a great sliding play to get the ball to Bowen to put out O’Hearn.

Plucheck continued to carry the Bearkats as he made a diving catch to rob Kevin Cho of a hit, ending the top of the seventh, which would have scored Williams. In the bottom of the inning, Plucheck tied the game at two with a blast over the left field wall.

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
