CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – It was a rough afternoon of baseball for the Foresters at HIG Field on Saturday against one of the nation’s best in #14 Campbellsville University. The Tigers claimed a 10-1 win over Coach Frame and crew in game one before blanking HU 7-0 in the nightcap.

CU wraps up their four-game series over Huntington with a 3-1 record. 

Timely hitting was the key to Campbellsville’s first win as they made the most of their nine hits. The Tigers cashed in on three hits for three runs in the first and then posted another three hits in the fifth while taking advantage of two Forester errors and drawing three walks to collect another six runs which proved more than enough for the win.

HU’s lone run came in the seventh on Drew McLochlin’s RBI-groundout. As a team, Huntington finished with seven hits by seven different Foresters.

DJ Moore took the loss for the Foresters. He tossed the first four innings and gave up six hits, four runs, three of which were earned, and a walk while striking out one.

Game two was equally frustrating for the Foresters as they struggled with errors again in addition to struggling at the plate. After committing five miscues in game one, HU added three more to their day’s total in the nightcap to give up two unearned runs.

The Tigers jumped out to a 3-0 lead after two frames and added runs in the fifth and sixth to claim the shutout as Huntington managed just three hits. Jake Hansen claimed two of HU’s base pokes while TJ Lindstrand the other.

Tarrin Beachy was charged with the loss on the mound. He threw the first four innings and gave up four hits, three runs and two walks while striking out three.

HU (1-3) is back in action next weekend when they travel to IU Southeast for a pair of doubleheaders.
