NSU uses long ball to split with Bronchos

NSU briefs

EDMOND – The Northeastern State baseball team blasted seven home runs en route to a doubleheader split with Central Oklahoma Tuesday afternoon at Simmons Field.

The RiverHawks moved their record to 19-16 overall and 19-16 in the MIAA, while the Bronchos are now 19-16 overall and 15-15 in the league.

Seniors Kegan Knight and Jordan Dallalio joined junior Cody Robinson with two home runs each. Knight hit both of his in the first game, Robinson had two in the second game, and Dallalio hit one in both games. Senior Chad Davidson also recorded his first-career grand slam.

Robinson leads the MIAA with 14 home runs this season and is second with 44 runs batted in.

NSU 12, UCO 5

Knight hit a two-run shot in the top of the first and Northeastern State never trailed in the series opener. The victory gave the RiverHawks three-straight against the Bronchos this season.

Sophomore Kyle Shambaugh threw a complete-game five hitter to improve to 2-1 on the year. He struck out 10 batters and walked just four, while allowing five runs on five hits.

All of NSU’s top eight batters recorded at least one hit and scored at least one run. Knight was 4-for-4 with four runs batted in, three runs scored and two home runs. Davidson only had one hit, but he used it to drive home four members of his team in the fifth inning.

Edgar Lopez (4-3) was saddled with the loss for UCO after allowing nine runs on nine hits in 5.1 innings. He struck out six and walked one. Joe Hollowell tossed the final 1.2 frames and gave up three runs on three hits.

Two of Central Oklahoma’s five hits came off the bat of Cesar Wong, both of which were solo home runs.

UCO 7, NSU 6 (second game)

The RiverHawks took a 6-4 lead into the bottom of the ninth, but a three-run rally allowed the Bronchos to escape with the split.

Central Oklahoma led 4-2 after five innings, but the RiverHawks scored solo runs in each of the final four frames to find its 6-4 advantage. Cesar Wong hit the game-winning, two-RBI double for the Bronchos with two outs.

Wong was the only member of the home side to record multiple hits, as he finished with two. UCO outhit NSU 9-7.

Robinson hit solo home runs in the sixth and eighth innings. He finished 3-for-4 with two RBI and three runs scored. Dallalio hit a solo shot in the top of the ninth and drove home two. Knight had his 12-game hit streak come to an end.

The RiverHawks used a staff day on the mound, with freshman Andrew Walker earning the start. He exited after two innings following a three-hit, three-run effort. Four other pitchers were used over the course of the next three frames.

Senior Trevor Walch (2-3) tossed the final 3.2 innings, and he allowed three runs on four hits. From the sixth through eighth innings, Walch struck out seven (five in a row at one point) and only gave up one hit.

Northeastern State will now return home for a three-game weekend set with Fort Hays State. First pitch of the doubleheader is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Saturday.

    Experience comes from encountering the same things in the same ways over and over again. Oklahoma’s Geneo Grissom and Julian Wilson have that at defensive end and nickleback in bunches.
    However, both will be seeing new things when practice begins. Grissom is moving to outside linebacker. Wilson will be getting a look at cornerback as his senior season begins

  • Really one true champion?

    I decided to spare the colleagues in front of me – and myself from making a scene – by holding back flipping my table at the Big 12 Conference Football Media Days in Dallas.
    I had become exhausted by the constant use and misrepresentation by the Big 12 with their moniker of “One True Champion.” If they are going to live with the slogan, then they need to abide by that slogan.
    Perhaps its a simple case that they are keeping constant with the poor math of the 10-team Big 12 Conference.
