First Weekend of Northern Sun Play in the Books

Baseball Banner1

As a part of my reduced time investment to this blog my entries are going to be less frequent and rely more on school press releases.  It still gives NSIC baseball fans a place to share information and jabs. 

The first weekend of play is complete and 6 Northern Sun teams saw their first action over the past few days –

Minnesota Duluth and Southwest Minnesota State battled each other at the Metrodome with the Mustangs coming away with a 2 games to 1 advantage.  Duluth got robbed of a 9-1 win in the 4th scheduled game when they ran out of time with 3 outs to go in the 7th inning.  Bulldogs-Mustangs Recap

St. Cloud State swept 3 games from Wisconsin – Parkside at the Metrodome.  Heralded freshman, Jordan Smith, lived up to the early hype and had 3 multi-hit games going 7-11 for the series.  He’s the early favorite for Player of the Week.  St. Cloud State Sweeps

Bemidji State swept a non-conference doubleheader from fellow NSIC team, Minnesota Crookston by scores of 7-0 and 8-4.  Beavers sweep Golden Eagles  The perfect season was short lived as they dropped a pair of games the next day against Rockhurst University Rockhurst Wins 6-2 & 5-4

Concordia University split it’s season opening doubleheader against Northwestern (IA).  Both games were decided by 1 run as the Golden Bears won game 1, 7-6 but dropped the nightcap 5-4.  Concordia Splits 

Finally, Augustana kicked off their season at the Metrodome with a split against the same Rockhurst team that had swept Bemidji State.  Both games were blowouts with the Vikings winning game 1, 13-2 but being blown out in game 2, 14-5.  Vikings Split To Open Season
