Saints close out with splits


Roberts drove in the big run in the second game. His one-out sacrifice fly in the ninth inning scored Pattison with the winning run.

Iowa Wesleyan once again jumped in front to start Game 2 and plated a run in the first to grab a 1-0 advantage.

But the Saints weren’t about the send the seniors out on such a foul note. AU drove around five runs in the bottom half of the third inning to take control.

Pattison belted a bases-loaded single through the left side, scoring pinch-runner Danny Walczak and Petey Mroz for the first two runs. Then, a few batters later, Roberts singled through the left side to bring around freshman Patrick Pinlac before another single through the left side, this time by Reyes, scored Pattison and Kyler Kopach to end the extended run.

The Tigers battled back to score three runs and chase AU senior starter Ty Funk in the fifth. Two wild pitches and a bases-loaded hit batsman surrendered the trio of runs to pull IWC within 5-4.

AU left the bases loaded in the fifth, and the Tigers tied the contest with a run in the seventh.

In between games, Ashford celebrated the careers of eight seniors playing their final four-game set at Ashford University Field. Reyes, Funke, Kopach, Bumphrey, Michael Bruns, Tanner McLaughlin, Zach Smerz and Tommy Caravia all received recognition in between the pair of contests.

Ashford now prepares for the Association of Independent Institutions Baseball Tournament in Victoria, Texas. The five-team, double-elimination event begins Wednesday, with the championship set for Friday.
