Eagles struggling to reach .500
Over the Easter weekend the CEU baseball team went on the hunt for wins instead of eggs.
They had limited success as they beat the College of Southern Idaho in the first of four games before losing the final three. On Friday, April 2, the Eagles earned a 4-0 in the opening game of the series. They then dropped the second game 2-1.
On Saturday they found themselves on the short end again with a 4-2 loss and then a 6-0 shutout against the other Golden Eagle conference opponent.
Cameron Schmidt (3-2) earned the win for CEU on the mound on Friday. He went six shut-out innings. The offense pounded out nine hits for four runs.
The Eagles scored a pair in the first and one more in the third before Garrett Argyle went deep in the fifth inning to put the icing on the win.
Game two was a defensive battle. Neither team scored until they both posted a run in the fourth.
It was CSI that broke the stalemate with one more in the sixth to earn the win. Jacob Zumbrunnen took the loss for CEU.
On Saturday, April 3, It was again the fourth inning before either team could score. This time they both put up a two spot on the board. Austin Smith sent one over the fence for CEU.
Just like the game before it was the sixth inning that decided the win for CSI as they added the final two runs. Josh Swenson went six deep and got the loss for CEU.
Jesse Harris took the mound for CEU in the final game. He only went 3.2 innings before he was force out. CSI put up two runs in the third and four more in the fourth.
That handed Harris the loss. The Eagles were not able to mount any offense of their own and were shut out in the final game of the series.
The Eagles will be at home this weekend for a four game series with Western Nevada. Game times begin at 1 p.m. on Friday and noon on Saturday, April 10.
