Red-hot ISU baseball wins eighth straight game

NEW ORLEANS — Indiana State broke away from a tight ballgame with four runs in the fifth inning and went on to post their eighth-straight victory of the 2014 campaign with a 10-3 triumph over New Orleans Saturday.

David Stagg (3-0) was the winning pitcher for the Sycamores as he went seven innings. He allowed two runs, scattered nine hits and struck out eight.

ISU (8-1) scored in the top of the first inning after Landon Curry singled, went to second on a balk and scored on an RBI single to right center by Jacob Hayes. The Privateers answered with a run in the bottom half of the first and the game remained tied for the next three innings.

The Sycamores took the lead for good in the fifth inning when they scored four runs on five hits. Curry and Cody Zimmerman each hit one-out singles and both scored when Hayes doubled into centerfield. Michael Eberle followed with an RBI single into right center which scored Hayes. Eberle went to second as Brian Romero grounded out and then scored on an RBI single to left from Derek Hannahs.

ISU racked up five runs on seven hits in the seventh inning to take a commanding 10-2 lead. Eberle got the offense rolling with a one out single and scoring on Romero’s triple down the right field line. Hannahs singled in Romero with Connor McClain and Jeff Zahn each hitting single which loaded the bases. A two-out single from Curry drove in the final two Sycamore runs.

The Sycamores had 10 runs on 16 hits with New Orleans limited to three runs on 10 hits.

Curry had four singles in six trips to the plate to pace the Sycamore offense while Eberle had a triple and two singles in four trips to the plate. Hayes had a double and a single, Zimmerman and Hannahs two singles each, Romero a triple, and Taylor Steen and McClain had a single each.

Indiana State (8-1) will wrap up the weekend series with New Orleans on Sunday at 1 p.m.
