BOURBONNAIS, Ill. – The Purdue University Northwest baseball team lost to Olivet Nazarene University in a pair of Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference contests Saturday afternoon.

 

Game 1: ONU 5, PNW 0

After three scoreless innings, the Tigers jumped on the scoreboard in the bottom of the fourth frame, taking a 4-0 advantage over the Pride.

 

ONU would score one more run in the bottom of the fifth inning on an RBI-double from R.W. Rienow.

 

The Pride would be held scoreless for the remainder of the contest, with the Tigers earning the 5-0 victory.

 

Josh Arnold (Lowell, Ind./Lowell) pitched five innings and allowed five runs, one earned, while striking out one.

Game 2: ONU 5, PNW 2

 

The Black and Gold capitalized on a pair of miscues from the Tigers, after a balk led to Cody Moskovsky scoring the first run of the game in the top of the second.

 

Tyler Kenjic (Hobart, Ind./Hobart) would score in the top of the sixth inning thanks to an error from ONU, which gave the Pride a 2-0 advantage.

 

ONU would score one in the bottom of the sixth frame, and take its first lead of the game in the bottom of the seventh after the Tigers drove in a pair of runs to go ahead 3-2.

 

The Tigers would tack on two more runs in the bottom of the eighth, which would be the final runs of the game, leading them to a 5-2 victory.


Jordan Petty (Fort Collins, Colo./Highland) got the start for the Pride on the mound, allowing just one run through six innings while striking out one.

 

Brett Shoults (Oxford, Ind./Benton Central) and Deven Smith (Royal Center, Ind./Pioneer) each pitched one inning for the Pride out of the bullpen.

 

Alex Batistatos (Hobart, Ind./Hobart), Alec Skalka (Munster, Ind./Munster) and Hunter Thorn (Portage, Ind./Portage) each led the Pride with two hits apiece.
