It was an exciting night of baseball between the Pilots and Knights of Marian University on Friday. Even with 14 innings scheduled in the doubleheader between the squads, the fans in attendance got more than expected when the first game on the docket went into extra innings. BC cut the extended ballgame short, winning the contest in the eighth inning 11-8. However, the good fortune did not spill over into game two as MU ran away with the nightcap 9-4. BC moves to 11-21 on the season and 7-13 in Crossroads League play while Marian now sits at 11-14 overall and 10-10 in league action.
Stepping out of Crossroads League play, the Bethel Pilots picked up a split on Tuesday afternoon against the Warriors of Indiana Tech, winning game one 3-0 and falling in the nightcap 9-11. The 3-0 result in the opener marks the first shutout of the season for the baseball team and gives the team their 10th win of the campaign. Bethel now sits at 10-20 on the season with 14 games remaining before postseason play begins in early May.
The Bethel baseball team closed out the weekend by dropping a pair of contests to the Wildcats of Indiana Wesleyan University 6-7 and 1-3. The Pilots fell in three of the four meetings against IWU and move to 9-19 on the season and 6-12 in league play while the Wildcats sit at 20-20 and 10-8.
Bethel baseball used an explosive second inning to take down the Wildcats of Indiana Wesleyan University 7-4 in game one of today's doubleheader. It looked as if the Pilots would earn the sweep of the Wildcats, leading IWU late in the nightcap, but a last-inning comeback by the hosts stole game two to make BC finish the day 1-1. The Pilots move to 9-17 on the season and 6-10 in league play while IWU sits at 18-20 and 8-8 in the Crossroads League.
