USI wins one, loses one at KWC

Game 1: USI 6, KWC 1

Game 2: KWC 3, USI 0

The University of Southern Indiana baseball team won the opener, 6-1, but lost the nightcap, 3-0, in Wednesday's doubleheader at Kentucky Wesleyan College. USI's record goes to 8-10 overall and 5-9 in the GLVC, while KWC goes to 12-8 overall, 10-6 GLVC.

Jeremy Kehrt

USI sophomore right-hander Jeremy Kehrt (Plainfield, Indiana) recorded his first complete game and his second victory of the year in the 6-1 Screaming Eagles win. Kehrt (2-2) allowed four hits and run, while striking out seven hitters in seven innings of work.

Kehrt's toughest inning was the third when he worked out of a bases-loaded, no-one out jam. He worked out of the jam by allowing just one run and stranding two.

At the plate, USI took the lead in the fifth inning with a pair of runs. Freshman third baseman Alex Thierhoff (Greenfield, Indiana) scored on a fielder's choice by freshman shortstop Chad Bruce (Fountaintown, Indiana), while senior catcher Jed Davis (Grayville, Illinois) scored on a wild pitch.

The Eagles pushed four insurance runs across in the top of the seventh. The offensive surge was highlighted by a RBI double by sophomore second baseman Darin Mastroianni (Huntersville, North Carolina) and a two-run home run by freshman centerfielder Chad Werry (New Harmony, Indiana).

KWC junior right-hander James Thomas stifled the USI offense in the nightcap as the Panthers won 3-0. Thomas (3-0) went the distance, scattering three USI hits over nine innings for the complete game shutout.

USI junior left-hander Brent Wendholt (St. Anthony, Indiana) pitched well in his first start of the year, but took the loss. Wendholt (0-1) went 5 2/3 innings and allowed four hits and three runs. Freshman right-hander Adam Thomas (Plainfield, Indiana) and senior right-hander Dustin Jourdan (Evansville, Indiana) finished the game for the Eagles.

The Eagles return to the friendly surroundings of the USI Baseball Field this weekend when they host the University of Wisconsin-Parkside for a four-game series. The first pitch is scheduled for noon Saturday and Sunday.
