ST. CLOUD – The Bemidji State baseball team struggled to match the scoring output of St. Cloud State on Sunday in St. Cloud. The Huskies jumped out to early leads in both games of the two teams’ doubleheader and kept adding on, ultimately winning by scores of 11-4 and 14-7.

In the first game, SCSU (28-10, 20-4 NSIC) scored two in the first inning and stretched the lead to 6-1 by the fifth. The Huskies added five runs in the seventh and final inning to put the game out of reach.

BSU (5-32, 2-21 NSIC) responded with three runs in the bottom of the seventh thanks to James Wirt’s RBI single and Derek Dolezal’s two-run double, but the Beavers could not pull off a miracle comeback.

Will Lavin took the loss for Bemidji State, allowing six runs on six hits in five innings pitched.

In the second game, St. Cloud State took complete control early. The Huskies put up 12 runs in the first two innings – essentially ending the game before it started.
