• Earlham 10, Rose-Hulman 3 — At Richmond, Earlham College scored six runs in the first inning to earn a 10-3 victory over Rose-Hulman in Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference baseball action on Saturday night.

The result, combined with other scores in the conference this weekend, means that Rose-Hulman must win at least one game in Sunday's doubleheader against Earlham to qualify for the 2013 HCAC Tournament. The Engineers would earn the No. 3 seed with a sweep, the No. 4 seed with a split, and be replaced in the tournament by Defiance if Earlham sweeps.

Seven Earlham players had two hits each to lead the Quaker offense. Sam Ward had two hits and three RBIs, Ross Yoho had two RBIs and Alex Arovits pitched in with a double and one RBI to lead the balanced attack.

Justin Broach scattered seven hits and struck out five in a complete game victory on the mound for Earlham.

The Rose-Hulman offense was led by sophomore Kody Alayon with a single, a double and one run scored.  Freshman Patrick Klima added one single, one run and one RBI.

Earlham improved to 10-27 overall and 6-16 in league play with the win, while Rose-Hulman stands 12-10 in conference games and 15-22 on the season. The doubleheader begins at noon today in Richmond.


• ISU postponed — Rain Saturday wiped out a Missouri Valley Conference doubleheader at Price Field between Southern Illinois and Indiana State.

The two teams will play twice at 11 a.m. today, with ISU’s Senior Day festivities between games.


• Engineers still fifth — At Hulman Links, Rose-Hulman’s men’s team remained in fifth place after the third round of Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference tournament play Saturday.

Transylvania, which got a hole-in-one from Hunter Frazier on the 150-yard 13th hole, leads the standings with one round left that will be played today.
