The Huntington University baseball team didn't waste any time getting back on track after seeing its 12-game win streak snapped in the first game of a doubleheader on Saturday, April 15, clubbing visiting Marian University, 10-0 in the nightcap.

After collecting just five hits in a 6-2 loss in game one, the Foresters battered three Marian pitchers for 16 safeties in the nightcap laugher, which included home runs by Shea Beauchamp and TJ Lindstrand.

The Foresters, 22-8 overall and 15-3 in the Crossroads League, wasted no time in taking the fight to Marian in the nightcap, scoring one run in the first inning, two in the second, three in the third and another two in the fourth. They added solo tallies in the sixth and eighth innings to end things.

Beauchamp, the Foresters' first baseman, added three other hits to his home run and had four runs batted in for the game. Dalton Combs had three hits and two runs batted while Adam Roser added two hits and an RBI.

Andy Roser and Jamar Weaver each recorded a pair of hits.

The big batwork took any pressure off hurler DJ Moore, who went the first seven innings and yielded seven hits, with four strikeouts and two walks. Tarrin Beachy threw the final frame, allowing one hit.

Michael Crowley had two of the Foresters' five hits in the opener.

Mason Shinabery took the loss on the mound, going six innings, allowing six hits for four earned runs, with two strikeouts and three walks.

The Foresters took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning on a Beauchamp groundout, but couldn't find another run the rest of the game. Marian, meanwhile, tied the score in the second inning and pushed across three runs in the fourth inning. Marian got its final two in the seventh.
