SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- Minnesota State wasn’t kind to the Bemidji State baseball team on Thursday, as the Mavericks walloped the Beavers 12-1 and 10-0 in a neutral-site doubleheader in Sioux Falls, S.D.
In game one, BSU was within striking distance deep into the game. Wyatt Hamann’s fifth-inning RBI single cut the Bemidji State deficit to 3-1, but in the bottom half of the frame, MSU put up six runs to pull away. The Mavericks added three runs in the sixth to post a sudden 12-1 win.
Parker Borg took the loss on the mound, tossing 4 1/3 innings and allowing four runs off three hits and four walks while striking out three.
In game two, Minnesota State shot in front 3-0 after the first inning and never looked back. The Mavericks added four runs in the second and three in the third to build up another double-digit lead that held firm.
The Beavers finished with just two hits in the nightcap and went down in order for their final 13 batters of the game. Jackson Back took the loss, allowing 10 runs (seven earned) off 13 hits over three innings of work.
The road doesn’t get any easier for BSU, which next faces another team receiving votes in the national poll. Bemidji State begins a three-game series against Augustana with a doubleheader starting at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, March 26, back in Sioux Falls.
