MACU baseball takes down Southern Nazarene

MOORE — Robert Santana pitched seven effective innings to lead the Mid-America Christian University Evangels to a 3-2 victory over the NCAA D-II Southern Nazarene University Crimson Storm in the first game of a twinbill Saturday afternoon (Feb. 1) in Bethany, Okla.  The Crimson Storm came back to win the second game 6-3 to salvage the split.

Santana struck out nine and allowed only two runs on four hits in his seven innings of work. 

The Evangels’ offense came from Z Tipton, who went 1-of-3 with two RBI and Matt Cruz also drove in a run going 1-of-2.

Chevin Noone and Daniel Thompson each went 2-of-3 at the plate for the Evangels. 

The Crimson Storm broke out on top with a run in the bottom of the first before the Evangels tied the score with a run in the third and then took the lead with a two-run fourth inning.

Austin Samulowitz led the Crimson Storm by going 2-of-4 with one RBI.

In the nightcap, the Crimson Storm jumped out to an early lead with two runs in the first and another in the second for a 3-0 lead.

After the Evangels got on the board in the fourth, SNU answered with a tally in the bottom of the fifth and two more in the sixth for a commanding 6-1 lead.

The Evangels made things interesting with two runs in the seventh, but couldn’t get over the hump.

Noone lasted six innings for the Evangels, allowing four runs and striking out five. 

Thomas Solowynsky was solid on the hill for the Crimson Storm with seven strikeouts and only one run allowed in seven innings.

Ryan Brosnan paced the Crimson Storm with a 3-of-4 effort at the plate and one RBI, while Chance San Miguel was 1-of-2.
