On a blustery day, the Cornerstone University baseball team defeated Concordia University Ann Arbor in a shortened game, 15-9. With the wind blowing out 30 miles-per-hour, runs came in bunches.
The Golden Eagles knocked the Concordia starter out of the game after two innings by scoring 10 runs on 11 hits. Things didn't slow down much against the relief pitching as Cornerstone continued the offensive explosion. Overall, the Golden Eagles had 15 runs on 17 hits including 8 for extra bases.
Zach Harbison led the charge with three hits and two runs. Tyler Krahn was 2-3 with three runs and three RBI. Nick Covello was also 2-3 with three runs and two RBI. Eight Cornerstone hitters had at least 2 hits in the game.
Cullen Montgomery started on the mound and earned the win in spite of not having his best stuff. He went 4.1 innings in which he gave up 8 runs, 6 earned, on 7 hits, 6 walks, and 1 strikeout. Paul Freswick came on in relief and pitched the last .2 innings.
After the win, Cornerstone is 12-21 overall and 7-11 in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC). Cornerstone will continue the series against Concordia tomorrow in Grand Rapids.
