Baseball Sweeps Robert Morris
The Crimson Wave baseball team defeated Robert Morris University in both games of their double header last night. CCSJ won 4-1 in the first game and 11-7 in the second.
In game one, RMU got on the board first in the second inning to go up 1-0. It didn’t take long for the Crimson Wave to answer after Cesar Mari grounded out to third which was good enough to drive in Erric Barnier to even the score 1-1. The pitching and defense of the Crimson Wave would hold RMU scoreless the rest of the game. CCSJ would seal their win after scoring three runs in the sixth inning. Pedro Palacios pitched all seven innings for CCSJ and ended the game with four strikeouts.
The Crimson Wave really opened things up offensively as they scored 11 runs which is the second most of the season. Michael Ryerson had two hits and four RBI’s in game two. Kevin Arviso ended the game with two RBI’s. Luis Rondon, Mikyl Flemming, and Joseph Romero each had an RBI. CCSJ had nine total hits as a team. Sergio Esquivia pitched the first five innings for CCSJ and ended the game with 4 strikeouts.
The Crimson Wave will return to action on Saturday when they host Purdue University-Calumet. The game will begin at noon and played at Oil City Stadium in Whiting, Indiana.
Baseball Drops Two to Roosevelt
The Crimson Wave baseball team dropped a pair of games to Roosevelt University 5-0 and 9-7. It was a tough break for the Crimson Wave who were coming off of a pair of wins over Olivet Nazarene University earlier in the week.
In game one against Roosevelt, CCSJ just couldn’t find a way to score. Things changed in the second game after CCSJ started to hit the ball. The six hits the Crimson Wave had led to their seven runs but it wasn’t enough to overcome Roosevelt. Jake Beiriger led the way for the Crimson Wave with two hits and an RBI. Mikyl Flemming, Joseph Romero, Kevin Arviso, and Pedro Palacios each had an RBI as well. Sergio Esquivia pitched seven innings for the Crimson Wave and ended with 7 strikeouts.
CCSJ will return to action on Saturday April 18th when they travel to South Bend, Indiana to take on Holy Cross College.
