RIO GRANDE, Ohio (Baseball) – Drew Haislop (SO/Oak Hill, Ohio) went 3-for-4, knocked in a pair of runs and scored twice, as the Shawnee State baseball team scored six runs in the first four innings – and scored in every inning but the fifth – as the Bears split a doubleheader in a mid-week non-conference bout with the University of Rio Grande on Tuesday at Bob Evans Field.

Following the 9-6 victory, SSU allowed seven runs in the fifth frame of game two and collected just two hits, leading to an 11-2 defeat which split the doubleheader. On the season, SSU held the advantage in the rivalry series, winning three-of-four games.

PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (Baseball) – Jacob Waters (JR/DeWitt, Mich.)' single down the left field line in the seventh inning of a 1-1 game sent the Shawnee State baseball team to a 2-1 victory over No. 16 Campbellsville University, as the squads split a doubleheader – the Tigers won game one, 9-4 – in Mid-South Conference play on Sunday afternoon at Branch Rickey Park.

Waters' walkoff single was set up by a leadoff single from Andrew Vanthournout (FR/Bowling Green, Ky.), who moved to second on a sacrifice bunt from Travis Bingham (FR/Versailles, Ky.). Back-to-back strikeouts from reliever Logan Truex set the stage for the two-out heroics from the senior second baseman.

PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (Baseball) – The Shawnee State baseball team scored three runs in the first three innings, keeping the contest within two runs through six innings, but a three-run seventh frame lifted No. 16 Campbellsville University to a 10-4 victory over the Bears, despite an 11-hit performance by the home squad on Saturday afternoon at Branch Rickey Park.

Connor Wilson went 2-for-4 with an RBI, Mason Wisner (SR/Bay Village, Ohio) went 3-for-4 with a run scored and Dalton Tinsley (SR/Kokomo, Ind.) added a 2-for-4 performance for the Bears, but 15 hits from the Tigers led to 10 runs, including nine off SSU starter Derek Moore (SO/Wheelersburg, Ohio).

(Baseball) – Andrew Vanthournout (FR/Bowling Green, Ky.)'s sacrifice fly in the top of the seventh inning scored Matt Dvorscak (FR/Whiting, Ind.), as the Shawnee State baseball team escaped a comeback effort from West Virginia Tech en route to a doubleheader split – winning game one, 6-5, before a 7-0 loss in game two – on Thursday afternoon in non-conference action at Martin Field.

The Bears jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the opening game, before a five inning fifth from WVU Tech brought the score back to even, setting up the late-game heroics from Vanthournout. Conner Wilson (JR/San Diego, Calif.), Adam Turner (FR/Lansing, Mich.) and Vanthournout each knocked in runs in the contest.
