Loe hits milestone as baseball beats UNKBox Score
COFFEYVILLE, Kan. – The Northwest Missouri State baseball team opened MIAA play with a 13-6 win over UNK in Coffeyville, Kan., on Friday. The game was moved there due to weather concerns in Kearney, Neb. For head coach Darin Loe, it was his 370th victory with the Bearcats, becoming the program’s all-time leader in wins. Northwest moves to 4-3 on the year and 1-0 in MIAA play. UNK falls to 6-2 and 0-1 in league action.
Brandon Huske and Austin Wulff each had four hit games with each scoring three runs. Pomatto drove in three runs including a second inning solo shot.
Northwest scored in the first inning as Wulff singled in Huske. After UNK tied it, Northwest added a pair in the second and broke it open in with a four-run fourth. Northwest would add two in the seventh on hits by Zac Ferreira and Huske.
The Lopers responded with a four-run seventh inning to pull within four at 10-6. But Steve Garber had an RBI double in the top of the eighth, followed by a Pomatto two-RBI double, to stretch the lead to seven.
Ryker Fox picked up the win for Northwest, going 6.1 innings, allowing just two runs on eight hits with four strikeouts. He only allowed one walk. Tanner Smith and Daulton Perry combined to work scoreless eighth and ninth innings.
The two teams will play a doubleheader tomorrow starting at 1 p.m. Both games will be seven-inning contests.
