MINNETONKA -- The Bemidji State baseball team got swept at the hands of Concordia-St. Paul over the weekend, falling twice in Saturday’s doubleheader and again on Sunday in Minnetonka.

The Beavers fell 2-0 and 7-2 on Saturday, then 2-1 on Sunday to open their conference schedule.

In the opening game, BSU (3-14, 0-3 NSIC) managed just three hits and finished 0-for-3 with runners in scoring position. Logan Barrick went six innings and allowed just two runs on two hits, but the bats couldn’t support him in the 2-0 defeat.

In the nightcap, Bemidji State got runs in the fifth and sixth innings -- James Wirt scoring on a wild pitch and John Perkins scoring on Parker Borg’s sacrifice fly -- but the Golden Bears (9-6, 3-0 NSIC) racked up seven runs of their own to claim the 7-2 victory.

In Sunday’s game three, CSP struck with the first two runs, but the Beavers halved the deficit when Wirt scored on a fifth-inning sac fly. Yet BSU couldn’t push the tying run across in the final four frames, ultimately falling 2-1.
