Wildcats split with Evangel on Senior Day

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The Baker University seniors will have something to hang their hat on, knowing the program as a whole is on the rise. Saturday afternoon the Wildcats split a doubleheader with Evangel University on Senior Day.

The Wildcats got on the scoreboard early in game one, taking a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first. The Wildcats held Evangel to just one run in five innings, but a big seventh inning sunk Baker in game one. The Crusaders managed to score three insurance runs, two of which occurred via errors committed by the Wildcats.

Erin Greenwood led the team offensively and defensively, going 1-for-3 at the plate with two RBI’s while pitching a complete game giving up just eight hits and three runs.

As usual though, the Wildcats managed to bounce back in game two, salvaging the split.

Baker got on the scoreboard early again taking a 2-0 lead in the first inning and adding subsequent runs in the second and third to grab a 4-0 advantage.

That was all Baker needed for pitching ace Maggie Holmberg who grabbed her 11th victory of the season pitching a complete game while striking out eight batters.Send-Off

Heather Gruber led the team with two RBI’s while senior Katie Worley and junior Brooke Allen added solo home runs to pace the Wildcats to a 4-2 victory.

The Wildcats will return to action on April 20th when they travel to Washburn University for a 3:00 p.m. doubleheader.
