HUNTINGTON, Ind. – After suffering a 6-2 loss to Marian University Saturday afternoon to snap their 12-game win streak, the #RV Huntington baseball team responded with a 10-0 routing of the Knights in the nightcap. Coach Frame’s squad is now 22-8 overall, 15-3 in league play.

The Foresters, who entered the day averaging nearly ten hits per outing, collected just five hits in game one. They posted three of them in their first at bat to eventually score on Shea Beauchamp’s RBI-groundout for their only lead of the game.

Little did anyone expect that Huntington would manage just two more hits the rest of the way but the Knights made sure to take full advantage of their hosts’ quiet bats.  

MU matched HU’s run in the second and then claimed a permanent lead in the third by plating three runs. The Foresters would get one back in the fifth when Dylan Henricks led off with a single into shallow right-center and then came home on a missed catch to serve as HU’s last little bit of offense as the Knights scored twice more to put the exclamation point on their win.

Mason Shinabery took the loss for HU by giving up six hits, four runs and three walks while striking out two in six innings in the circle.

The Foresters came back with a vengeance in the nightcap, cranking out 16 hits to Marian’s eight to run away with the win and cut the game one inning short because of the ten-run rule.

The top of the order took the loss earlier in the day personally – accounting for nine of their team’s hits with Beauchamp, batting in the three-hole, leading the way. The senior first baseman was a perfect 4-for-4 at the plate which included his ninth dinger of the year and an RBI-double.

Dalton Combs, HU’s lead off, finished with three hits, two of those he drove into right-center knocking in a run each time while Adam Roser, batting second, added two hits and an RBI. TJ Lindstrand made sure his only hit was a big one, sending it out of the park for a two-run blast in the third.

Andy Roser and Jamar Weaver also recorded multiple hits for the Foresters. Roser tallied two hits and scored once while Weaver finished with a pair of hits, scored twice and added an RBI.

When all was said and done, Huntington logged runs in all but the fifth and seventh with Adam Roser’s RBI-single in the eighth pushing the lead to ten to bring an abrupt ending to the game because of the mercy rule. 

DJ Moore effectively shut down Marian’s offense. The sophomore hurler scattered seven hits and gave up two walks while striking out four in seven innings of work for the shutout, his fifth win of the year.

The Foresters head to Bethel on Monday for a makeup game at 4:00 p.m.
