OKWU Baseball Season Ends

Share on RSS

 

The quest for a NAIA National Baseball Championship came up short for Oklahoma Wesleyan University as Lewis-Clark State ended the Eagles season with a 9-5 win Thursday evening at Lewiston, Idaho.  OKWU led 4-1 going into the top of the sixth inning and that's when things changed.  Lewis-Clark scored seven of their nine runs in the top of the sixth and never looked back.  As a team, the Eagles committed four errors.  Sam Haynes took the loss on the mound to finish with a 9-3 record.  In over five innings of work, Haynes gave up six runs on five hits, walked two, and struck out one.  Garrett Easton went 2 for 3 while Avery Flores, Jeff Butler, Jose Ruiz, Cody Riley, Will Price, and Asa Manship each got a hit.

The Eagles finished the 2014 season with a 58-8 record.  So many accomplishments for OKWU this season including the Midlands Collegiate Athletic Conference regular season and tournament champions, NAIA Regional Champions, and making their first ever NAIA World Series.  The 58 wins for OKWU is the most in school history.  Congrats to Coach Matt Parker and the entire Eagles baseball program for an excellent season.
