Mavericks sweep doubleheader against Bemidji State

Mavericks sweep doubleheader against Bemidji State

(Continued)

Batula walked the leadoff batter in the fourth, and it came back to haunt the right hander. After a single, another walk and a pair of RBI sacrifices, Batula nearly escaped with minimal damage. But Bemidji’s Terry Hadden drive to the left field fence bounced off Branstad’s glove, scoring two more and tying the game at 4-4.

The third-ranked Mavericks (30-7, 18-4 NSIC) regained the lead in the bottom of the inning when Standish reached third on a Max Waletich’s single. Standish later scored from third when Waletich was thrown out trying to steal second. The Mavericks, who finished with 11 hits, added two more insurance runs in the fifth. Relief pitchers Mitchell Bauer and Matt Geislinger added three innings of scoreless relief.

In Game 2, MSU broke a 2-0 lead wide open against the Beavers (13-14) in a six-run eighth inning. Nolan Johnson started the hit parade with a leadoff home run and his third RBI of the game. Parker Sullivan added a 2-run triple, and Standish’s double scored two more en route to the Mavericks’ win. MSU starter Josh Matheson went 5 1/3 innings, struck out five and allowed four hits.

After a 6-0 home stand, the Mavericks continue conference play with a doubleheader Thursday at Northern State
