Eagles split a pair of games at home
Brad Allen’s complete game helped the Eastern Michigan University baseball team pick up its second win of the weekend against Bowling Green in Ypsilanti on Saturday, March 25.
Allen picked up his first win of the season in his nine-inning performance to give the Eagles the 3-0 shutout victory. He only allowed two hits while striking out six batters in the shutout.
Jeremy Stidham and Zachary Owings each contributed with two hits a piece and each forcing an RBI. All three of the RBIs by the team were on outs.
In game two of the double-header, the Falcons offense hit its stride on the way to a 6-2 win over Eastern Michigan.
A four-run sixth inning for Bowling Green was too much for the Eagles to handle as they struggled to get on the board offensively. Max Schuemann led the offense with his 2-3 and two RBI game.
Brent Mattson pitched five innings and surrendered four runs while also striking out six batters. James Harness and Matthew Beaton were on clean-up as they didn’t surrender a single run.
The Eagles will face off against Oakland at Oestrike Stadium to recover from their last loss. First pitch is set for 6 p.m., Tuesday, March 28.
