HAMMOND, Ind. – The Purdue University Northwest baseball team dropped an 11-inning game to Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference opponent Olivet Nazarene, 5-4, Friday afternoon at Dowling Park.

 

The Pride (11-8, 4-1 CCAC) scored one run in each of the first four innings to take a 4-0 lead, but the Tigers (14-12, 3-2 CCAC) used a late game surge to even the score at 4-4, before picking up the extra inning win.

Jimmy Skiff (Dyer, Ind./Andrean) earned the no decision on the mound for PNW, allowing just five hits and two runs, one earned, with eight strikeouts in seven innings of work.

 

Jake Lindeman (Crown Point, Ind./Crown Point) drove in Crisler for the first run of the game on an RBI-single in the bottom of the first inning.

 

Crews would plate Moskovsky on an RBI-groundout in the second frame, with Avondre Harris (Mishawaka, Ind./Mishawaka) recording an RBI-double in the bottom of the third to give the Pride a 3-0 lead.

 

Crews would single in the bottom of the fourth to drive in Moskovsky again and extent the lead to 4-0.
