CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. (Baseball) – Shawnee State surrendered 16 hits, allowing a four-run fourth inning and three more in the fifth, as the Bears fell to Campbellsville, 10-0, in seven innings on Saturday afternoon at HIG Field to drop the opening game of a three-game Mid-South Conference set over the weekend.
The Bears were limited to just six hits in the game, as Zachariah Freeman (JR/Richmond, Texas), Conner Wilson (SR/San Diego, Calif.) and Matt Dvorscak (SO/Whiting, Ind.) each collected a pair of knocks.
After a four-run second inning from the Tigers, SSU threatened, as Dvorscak and Freeman each singled to open the top of the third. But the Bears were unable to capitalize, as Campbellsville starter Nick Przybylek induced a fielder's choice, a strikeout and a groundout to end the threat.
Neither team recorded a run in the third or fourth frames, but the Tigers added another three in the fifth to put the contest out of reach. CU added two more runs in the sixth and a single run in the seventh to bring the game to a close two innings early.
Przybylek earned the victory for CU, going 6.2 innings, allowing no runs and five hits while striking out nine. Derek Moore (JR/Wheelersburg, Ohio) took the loss for SSU, allowing seven earned runs on 10 hits and four strikeouts. Tyler Arthur (SO/Morehead, Ky.) provided two innings of relief, allowing three runs on six hits.
The Bears close out the weekend series with a doubleheader on Sunday at HIG Field. First pitch of game one is set for 1 p.m.
