MVC Tournament: Rain, lightning halts Dallas Baptist-Bradley game

Tournament schedule changes for Thursday and Friday

TERRE HAUTE — A lightning and rain delay postponed play in a winner's bracket game between Dallas Baptist and Bradley late Wednesday.

It altered the MVC Tournament schedule for Thursday and Friday.

The Wichita State-Southern Illinois game will be played as scheduled at 9 a.m.

Forty minutes following the conclusion of the WSU-SIU game, DBU and Bradley will resume Wednesday's game. DBU led 6-4 in the bottom of the 7th. Bradley had a runner on third with one out.

Forty minutes after the conclusion of the resumed DBU-Bradley game, the loser will play Missouri State.

Forty minutes after the conclusion of the Missouri State-DBU or Bradley contest, Illinois State will play the winner of the WSU-SIU game.

The game originally scheduled to be played at 7 p.m. Thursday will be moved to 12:30 p.m. Friday. Any other games that would need to be played Friday would be done so at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Friday. Necesscity to play those games will depend on results from earlier contests.

DBU (38-18) was ahead 1-0 four pitches into the game as Drew Turbin hit a home run to right field. Bradley answered in its half of the first after Max Murphy reached on a Turbin error and scored on a Greg Partyka sacrifice fly.

Bradley (24-26) took the lead in the second thanks to horror show defense by DBU.

With Evan Gruener on second, Isaac Smith reached base on a throwing error by DBU third baseman Nash Knight. Gruener then scored on a throwing error by DBU first baseman Mike Wesolowski, who was trying to throw out Gruener at third. Smith went all the way to third on the play and scored on a Chris Godinez sacrifice fly to make it 3-1.

The good times didn't last for the Braves. Making up for their combined E5-E3 error, Knight tripled and was driven in by Wesolowski to make it 3-2. Two batters later, DBU catcher Daniel Salters hit a towering home run to right to put the Patriots in front 4-3.

Dallas Baptist switched tack in the fourth as David Martinelli was sacrificed to second on a R.J. Talamantes walk and scored on a Camden Duzenack single to take a 5-3 lead. In the sixth, Duzenack single, advanced to second on an error and scored on a fielder's choice to make it 6-3.

Bradley got a run back in the bottom of the seventh. With Smith aboard, Chris Godinez tripled past leaping DBU right fielder Martinelli on a ball that just drew chalk on the foul line.

It was a dramatic last act before a lightning delay and subsequent thunderstorm delayed the game at approximately 11:30 p.m. It was called about 20 minutes later.
