HUNTINGTON, Ind. – The #RV Huntington baseball team extended its win streak to five Friday night with a 14-6 win over the University of Saint Francis at Forest Glen Park.

Tonight’s 14 runs marks the third time this week the Foresters have scored in double digits.

HU pieced together two big innings to cruise past the Cougars, touching home seven times in the second and plating five more in the seventh, to account for all but two of their runs.

Mike Crowley opened up the second by launching one over the left field fence to match USF’s run in the first for a 1-1 stalemate. But it was just the start for HU as they got the job done at the plate by posting four more hits and logging two sacrifice flies in addition to taking advantage of two Cougar errors, three wild pitches and a walk.

When all was said and done, the Foresters sent 11 batters to the plate in the second for five earned and two unearned runs for what seemed a comfortable 7-1 advantage.

However, the visitors came storming back and found some creative ways to score as well. The Cougars hammered out three hits, executed a double steal, drew two walks and took advantage of a misplayed grounder to plate five runs, two of which were unearned, to close the gap to just one at 7-6.

But it was all Huntington after that as they got two back in their half the frame, compliments of Adam Roser’s two-run single to right, to stretch the lead to three, 9-6.

The seventh saw the Foresters register just two hits, back-to-back RBI-singles by Shea Beauchamp and Tyler Zimske, with the rest of the offensive production coming by way of a sacrifice fly, two walks and three hit batters resulting in five more runs to cap off the night’s scoring.

Nine Foresters recorded at least one base poke with Combs, the Roser brothers and Crowley each collecting a pair. Henricks finished with three RBI while Adam Roser, Beauchamp and Zimske added two apiece.

After giving up six runs through the first three frames, starting pitcher DJ Moore settled in to hold the Cougars scoreless over the next three before being relieved by Caleb Landrum who gave up just one hit the rest of the way. Moore was tabbed the winner, giving up ten hits, six runs, four of which were earned, and two walks while striking out four through six innings.  

Coach Frame’s crew improves to 14-7 overall, 7-2 in league play. They are back at it tomorrow to square off with the Cougars twice more beginning at 2:00 p.m.
