In the nightcap of the double header, ORU sneaked past Harvard late for a 4-3 victory.
The Golden Eagles bats were hot in the second game of the double header, scoring a quick two runs in the first inning. The two runs came on RBI singles by Jose Trevino and Tyler Boss.
ORU after leading 3-1 for almost the entire game, the bullpen for ORU came in and couldn’t hold the lead. After a wild pitch to plate the first run of the inning, Nathan Garza gave up an RBI single, allowing Harvard to tie the game.
The Golden Eagles didn’t quit. After Brandy was hit by a pitch and moved over by a wild pitch, Jose Trevino moved him to third with a groundout to second. With the go-ahead runner at third, Harvard pitcher Danny Moskovits balked during his set and brought home the eventual winning run for the Golden Eagles.
ORU got an excellent start by Guillermo Trujillo. The sophomore starter pitched seven strong innings giving up one run (unearned), striking out nine batters while walking only two. Unfortunately, he received his second no decision of the season.
