Valor Baseball Swept at Nationally Ranked CMU on Sunday

Valor Baseball Swept at Nationally Ranked CMU on Sunday

FAYETTE, Mo. – Evangel hit the road to take on Heart South conference foe Central Methodist on Sunday to begin a four game series. The nationally ranked Eagles had no shortage of offense on Sunday as they bested the Valor, 24-2 and 7-5, respectively.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The Valor fell victim to a large offensive outburst in game one, allowing 24 runs to be scored, the most by an Evangel opponent since April 21st, 1999, when EU was defeated by Southwest Missouri, 30-4.

  • Levi Loughridge (3-3) recorded the loss in game one on Sunday after a tough outing against the high powered CMU offense.

  • In game two, Evangel found themselves in a hole early, but nearly fought back thanks to a strong seventh inning, ultimately falling short, 7-5

  • Wyatt Keplar (1-3) started game two and Jed Montgomery recorded quality innings in relief to keep the CMU lead close.

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Athanie Leeviraphan doubled to kick off the game for Evangel and was scored after Dalton Cook singled, giving Evangel a 1-0 lead.

  • Central Methodist used their half of the first inning to grab a lead by scoring two runs.

  • The Eagles used multiple hits and two EU errors to score six runs in the second inning, four runs courtesy of an Eagle grand slam.

  • The Valor scored their final run of the game in the third inning after Jeremy Vickers doubled to center field, scoring Leeviraphan  who had singled to get on base.

  • CMU scored 16 runs over the final four innings to put the game out of Evangel's reach.

  • In game two, both Evangel and CMU scored in the first two innings to tie the game. Brandon Ulm singled to score Noah Suiter after he reached first on an error.

  • CMU used a strong bottom of the second, scoring five runs to take a 6-1 lead.

  • EU narrowed the Eagle lead in the fourth inning when Stephen Belcher singled to score Cook and Suiter, making it a 6-3 ballgame.

  • The Eagles added an insurance run in the bottom of the fifth to take a 7-3 lead. The Valor fought valiantly to make the game interesting in the final inning, scoring two runs, thanks to a CMU error and a Cook single. Evangel fell just short in the inning with the game winning run at the plate, but ultimately fell, 7-5.

NOTABLE

  • Leeviraphan played well in game one, recording two hits to add to his team leading total and was scored twice throughout game one.

  • Belcher recorded two RBIs in game two, leading the team.

  • Montgomery gave up just one run in his relief innings in game two, giving Evangel a chance for the comeback.

UP NEXT

Evangel will continue their four game series on Monday (Mar. 21) against Central Methodist. Games are set to begin at noon in Fayette, Mo.
