One day after scoring 17 runs on 14 hits, the Nebraska Wesleyan baseball team was shutout and held to just two hits as Peru State College defeated the Prairie Wolves, 10-0, on Wednesday afternoon (Mar. 14) at NWU Field in Lincoln.
The Prairie Wolves (1-5) had defeated the Bobcats (13-5) 17-7 on Tuesday in Peru.
NWU did not get a hit through the first four innings as Peru St pitcher Austin Parker blanked the Prairie Wolves. Parker got his first win of the season going four innings not allowing a hit.
The first hit of the game for NWU came in the top of the fifth as Pete Sitorius sent a shot down the right field line. The next batter hit into a double play as the threat was denied.
Peru State jumped ahead 3-0 in the top of the first inning and never looked back as they finished with 13 hits. NWU threatened in the bottom of the first inning as the first three batters all walked to load the bases, but the Prairie Wolves were unable to drive any home.
Tyler Croushorn led the Bobcats at the plate going 3-4 with four RBI.
NWU will be back in action this weekend hosting Buena Vista University. The two teams will play a doubleheader on Saturday and one game on Sunday.
