HUNTINGTON, Ind. – In an early battle for the top spot in the league standings, the HU baseball team got the best of Mount Vernon Nazarene University, 6-0, Wednesday afternoon at Forest Glen Park.

The meeting was the third between these two teams with Huntington taking the series 2-1. The Foresters (13-7, 6-2) are currently tied with Taylor University for first place while MVNU (20-12, 5-3) drops into third.

Tanner Wyse (3-1) was spectacular on the mound. The senior thrower had a no-hitter going through the first six innings before giving up back-to-back singles in the top of the seventh. HU’s ace issued three walks while striking out six in seven innings of work for the impressive win. Tyson Dietrich tossed the final two frames, giving up just one hit, to complete the shutout.

Offensively, Dalton Combs paced the Foresters by going 3-for-4 at the plate which included a two-run double in the second. He would hammer out another two-bagger in the fourth to set the stage for three more HU runs to cross home plate.

Adam Roser highlighted the fourth by singling in Combs and Henricks, who had walked to open the inning, and eventually coming home on a single by Mike Crowley into shallow right-center.

HU’s first run preceded Combs’ RBI-shot in the second when Jamar Weaver was hit by a pitch with bases loaded.

Huntington finished with nine hits and drew six base on balls while taking advantage of two Cougar errors to account for their six runs, four of which were of the unearned variety.

Coach Frame’s crew will look to extend their win streak to five on Friday when they host the University of Saint Francis at 4:30 p.m.

The Huntington University Foresters compete in 17 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 38 NAIA All-America honors and 254 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations. U.S. News & World Report ranks Huntington among the best colleges in the Midwest.
