FORT WAYNE, Ind. – The #24 Forester baseball team (27-10) took a break from league play in a Top 25 showdown where the #19 Warriors of Indiana Tech (35-10) jumped out to an 8-0 lead on the way to cruising to a 15-9 win at Warrior Field Tuesday night.

The win avenges a 4-2 loss to HU earlier this season.

Tech came screaming out of the gates to build an advantage that the Foresters could never catch. In addition to hammering out four hits, which included a grand slam, the hosts took advantage of three walks and a hit batter to touch home eight times in the bottom of the first.

The Foresters weren’t able to cut into the Warriors’ lead over the next six innings as both teams scored three times over that span. It wasn’t until the final two frames that the visitors finally outscored Indiana Tech 6-4 but it wasn’t near enough as the final six-run spread was the closest HU got all night.

Starting pitcher Will Coursen-Carr took the loss for Huntington. He lasted less than an inning and gave up four hits, eight runs and three walks.  

Offensively, HU collected 15 hits, seven for extra bases, to Tech’s 20. Andy Roser logged a pair of doubles on his way to posting three hits and three RBI. Dylan Henricks went 4-for-5 at the plate with an RBI while Michael Crowley and Adam Roser tallied three and two hits respectively.

Coach Frame’s crew is back at it on Friday when they travel to Goshen for a nine-inning game slated to start at 3:00 p.m.
