Valor Baseball Swept by Park on Saturday

Valor Baseball Swept by Park on Saturday

The Basics

Game 1 (10 inn.): Evangel 6, Park 8

Game 2: Evangel 3, Park 9 | Box Score

Record: Evangel (15-19, 6-12), Park (17-10, 8-8)

Location: Springfield, Mo. (University Field)

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Valor Baseball returned home to take on the Park Pirates, looking to snap their five game losing streak. In game one, Park and Evangel both used a big inning to force extras, where Park claimed the victory in the tenth, 8-6. The second game of the afternoon consisted of much less Evangel offense as Park held the Valor at bay, taking the win, 9-3.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Evangel gained a lead in the sixth inning of game one, but were unable to grab the win after an error allowed Park to force extras and claim the victory in the tenth.

  • The Valor could only record five hits in game two as Park finished with eight, two being home runs, giving the Pirates a 9-3 victory.

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Neither team scored any runs in the first two innings of game one, but in the top of the third, Park used four hits, a walk, and a hit by pitch to score five runs.

  • Evangel's outlook in game one looked bleak until a huge sixth inning by the Valor. Mason Hansen walked and both Athanie Leeviraphan and Noah Suiter were hit by pitch to load the bases. Dalton Cook doubled, scoring Hansen and Leeviraphan to make it a 5-2 game. Kale Hynes was walked to get on base.

  • Stephen Belcher hit a sacrifice fly to score Suiter and Gage Harris singled to score Cook. Dylan Blehm was walked to again load the bases for Evangel. With two outs, Hansen came back up to bat and singled, scoring Parker Dinwiddie and Harris, giving Evangel a 6-5 lead heading into the seventh inning.

  • Park scored the game tying run with two outs in the seventh on an error, giving the Pirates life and their first run since the third inning of the game.

  • Neither team could score a run in the eighth and ninth inning, but Park found offense in the tenth, grabbing a 8-6 lead and shutting the Valor bats down to claim the victory.

  • Park came out quick on offense in game two, scoring four runs, three of which came on a home run.

  • Evangel scored a run in the bottom of the first when Leeviraphan walked, advanced to second on a wild pitch, and scored on a Suiter single.

  • Park scored another three runs in the top of the third to take a 7-1 lead.

  • The Valor tacked on another run in the bottom of the third when Leeviraphan hit a no doubt solo blast to center field, making it a 7-2 ballgame.

  • Evangel added their final run of the game in the fourth inning on an error. Park added two additional runs in the late innings of the game and took the win by a final score of 9-3.

NOTABLE

  • Evangel could not record the clutch hit they needed, leaving a combined 18 runners on base throughout Saturday.

  • Leeviraphan hit his team leading fourth home run in game two.

UP NEXT

Evangel will finish their weekend doubleheader with the Pirates of Park on Sunday (Apr. 10) at 1:00 p.m. at University Field in Springfield, Missouri.
