BASEBALL: NSU picks up sweep over Harding

SEARCY, Ark. — The Northeastern State baseball team kicked off the 2014 season with a doubleheader sweep over Harding Thursday afternoon at Jerry Moore Field.

“We’re very happy to get a couple of wins to start the season,” NSU coach Travis Janssen said. “I thought we played well in a lot of areas in the game, which is very encouraging. We weren’t too good offensively today, but some of that is to be expected because we haven’t been outside much lately and the guys had some opening-day jitters. I was really proud of our defense and pitching. Our pitching was the high point of the day.”

The RiverHawks (2-0) used a big inning to overpower the Bisons (2-2) in the first game, and they followed that up with three manufactured runs in the second contest to register a second victory.

Seniors David Weber and Mitch Stevenson, along with junior Preston Cash, all had hits in both games. Junior closer Seth Hudson pitched the final inning in both contests and picked up a save in the second game.

NSU 5, Harding 0 (first game)

The only runs of the game occurred in the top of the sixth, when NSU exploded for five runs. The two teams entered the frame with just a combined five hits.

Junior Tyler Wilkins and senior David Weber led off the frame with back-to-back singles, and they were moved 90 feet on a sacrifice bunt from junior newcomer Dante Broom. Wilkins scored the first run of the game when senior Cody Robinson was hit by a pitch. A single from junior Cayle Shambaugh brought home both Weber and Stevenson, who was intentionally walked earlier. Robinson stole home on a double steal attempt, and Shambaugh later scored on a double from Staggs.

Junior Kyle Shambaugh earned the victory on the mound after throwing 5.1 innings. He struck out two, did not issue any walks or runs and only allowed three hits. Senior Addison Williams threw 0.2 innings of relief and Hudson tossed the final frame.

  • 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.
