GOSHEN, Ind. – The #24 HU baseball team wrapped up the regular season in convincing fashion Monday afternoon with a 13-2 blowout over Goshen College (23-27-1, 11-16). With this win, the Foresters improve to 29-11 overall, 22-5 in league play. Coach Frame’s crew has scored at least ten runs in six of their last 13 contests.

Scheduled to be a nine-inning contest, it was cut one inning short by way of the mercy rule. Things didn’t start out that way; however, as the Maple Leafs cashed in on two of their four hits to jump in front 2-0 after the first frame.

But the Foresters were quick to turn the tides. After drawing even with GC in the second on RBI-hits by Adam Roser and Will Coursen-Carr, HU took a comfortable 6-2 lead in the next frame and kept adding to their total for the lopsided win.

Huntington relied on small ball to touch home four times in the second as four different Foresters registered run-scoring singles.

Coursen-Carr, one of the Foresters who posted an RBI-single in the second, struck again in the fifth with a two-run blast over the center field fence. He would go on to collect a single in HU’s three-run seventh to finish a perfect 4-for-4 at the plate to go along with four RBI.

Adam Roser highlighted the seventh with HU’s second two-run dinger of the afternoon. Roser’s, like Coursen-Carr’s, cleared the center field fence. To date, nine different Foresters have logged a four-bagger this season.

Enjoying an 11-2 advantage heading into the eighth, TJ Lindstrand and Dylan Henricks each knocked in a run with a double and single respectively to extend the gap beyond ten after which Caleb Landrum retired three consecutive Goshen batters in the bottom of inning to end the game early.

Landrum tossed the eighth, Connor West pitched the previous two innings and DJ Moore (7-1) got the start and win, pitching the first five frames to give up two hits, two runs and a walk while striking out three.

HU finished with 18 hits on the day. In addition to Coursen-Carr’s four hits, Roser added three hits and four RBI. Henricks also logged three hits to go along with an RBI.

The Foresters enter the conference tournament as the top seed and will host #8 Bethel on Saturday at 3:00 p.m. in the opening round.
