ORU 4, Northwestern 3
NATCHITOCHES, La. – Jake Clouatre scored on an infield single by Will Watson in the seventh inning against losing pitcher Alec Smith, the third of five ORU pitchers.
The Golden Eagles’ regular season comes to an end with a 23-30 overall record, 16-11 in Southland Conference play, while NWLA finished its season at 16-40 overall and 5-22.
ORU had five hits, no one with more than one, and scored all of its runs in the third. Nate Goro started things with a double to left, scoring on a bunt single by Brandon Healy. Kevin Cho, who also reached on a bunt single earlier in the inning, was driven home as Jose Trevino singled to left. Trying to throw Healy out at third, the Demon catcher threw the ball back into left field, allowing Healy to cross the plate.
Unfortunately for the Golden Eagles, the Demons knotted the game at three in the bottom of the inning, highlighted by a two-RBI double into the right field corner by Matt Burns.
ORU will take on Stephen F. Austin in the first round of the Southland tournament in Sugarland, Texas, at 9 a.m. Wednesday. The Lumberjacks swept the Golden Eagles in early April in Nacogdoches, Texas.
