Home / News / HU blanks Bethel for nine straight wins

MISHAWAKA, Ind. – The #RV Forester baseball team extended their win streak to nine Saturday afternoon in convincing fashion by blanking Bethel College, 5-0, 10-0, at Jenkins Stadium.

With these wins, HU (18-7) remains atop the league standings with an 11-2 conference record, 1.5 games ahead of second place Taylor University.  

Tanner Wyse pitched a two-hit shutout in game one. The senior ace gave up a hit in the second and another in the fourth, issued just two walks while striking out eight for an impressive display on the mound.

His teammates got the job done at the plate, finding home twice in the second and adding three more to their total in the sixth to cruise to their fourth shutout of the season.

TJ Lindstrand posted the third dinger of his career in the second frame, a two-run shot, to give HU the early 2-0 lead. He was also a part of his team’s three-run rally in the sixth by opening up the frame with a single and eventually coming around to score on Jamar Weaver’s RBI-double to left-center.

Dalton Combs then delivered with a run-scoring single into shallow right-center before Adam Roser knocked in the game’s final run with a sacrifice fly.

HU finished game one with nine hits.

Pitching was just as spectacular in the nightcap. This time it was Mason Shinabery who logged the complete-game shutout. The freshman hurler scattered three hits and two walks while striking out five to blank the Pilots for a second time.

Coach Frame’s crew hammered out 11 hits and took advantage of four Bethel errors to post the double digit win, their third of the year.

Offense again came pretty easily for the visitors. The Foresters scored three runs in three different frames with the sixth proving to be the most notable. After Will Coursen-Carr led off with a single to left, Andy Roser posted HU’s first double of the inning. Dylan Henricks followed suit to knock in two runs and then two batters later, Dalton Combs logged a third two-bagger to drive in another run.

When all the dust had settled, over half the Foresters’ hits were doubles with Combs claiming three of them to go along with an RBI. Adam Roser finished with two run-scoring base pokes for three RBI while Coursen-Carr collected a pair of hits including a two-run single in the first.
