TUCSON, Ariz. – The Dakota Wesleyan University baseball team battled NCAA Division II Opponent, University of Concordia St. Paul in a doubleheader on Sunday. DWU dropped the first contest 7-0 and fell in the second game, 6-0.
The first game was a low-scoring pitching affair for most of the game. Gavin Reichmuth (Chandler, Ariz.) allowed just one hit through the first five innings. Despite the impressive pitching, the Tiger (1-7) offense was unable to reach home.
The Golden Bears broke the scoreless streak in the bottom of the sixth inning with a seven-run frame. The inning was enough as DWU could not tie the game in the top of the seventh inning.
CSP began the second game with a run in the top of the third inning to take a 1-0 lead. Later, the Golden Bears strung together a five-run sixth inning to hold a 6-0 lead. The sixth inning was enough for CSP as the Tigers could not muster a run in the game.
Gilberto Rodriguez (San Antonio, Texas) finished 1-for-3 at the plate, while Wes Anderson (Duluth, Minn.) went 1-for-2. Gunnar Johnson (Gresham, Ore.) took the loss on the mound as he pitched five innings, striking out five batters and allowing one earned run.
