Wayne State & Augustana Have Tough Day in Colorado

Wayne State entered the season confident and on a high after winning their 6th straight Northern Sun league title in 2009 and with rankings among the Top 20 in all 3 preseason Division 2 college baseball polls.  On Saturday the Wildcats, ranked #2 in the Central Region by the National College Baseball Writers Association, faced off in a doubleheader against Central Region’s #10 ranked Nebraska Kearney in La Junta, CO. 

The Lopers, who were only 26-32 in 2009, swept the 2 games by scores of 6-4 and 6-1 to drop Wayne State to an 0-2 start for the season.  To add insult to that start, bad weather forecast for Sunday has already forced the cancellation of the 2nd scheduled doubleheader and the Wildcats will head back to Nebraska until next weekend when they can travel to Kansas to play Pittsburg State.  Lopers Sweep #14 Wayne State

Augustana (1-3) didn’t fare any better on Saturday as they lost 2 games to Colorado School of Mines and gave up a ton of runs in the process.  The Vikings gave up 11 runs in each of the 2 losses, losing 11-6 in game 1 and losing late in game 2 by a score of 11-10. 

The losses by Augustana may have even been worse than Wayne’s.  The game 2 loss was taken by Brett Severtson who entered the year as a 2009 NSIC 2nd Team All-Conference selection and Augustana’s most reliable pitcher.  In addition, Colorado Mines was the worst team in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference in 2009.  The team finished the season with a 10-37 record.  The teams are scheduled to play another doubleheader today.  Augie Baseball Drops 2 Games
