ORU Baseball Falls 3-2 at Missouri State

Posted: Updated:

Two homeruns by Jose Travino could not save Oral Roberts (9-10), and the Golden Eagles fell 3-2 to Missouri State in Hammons Field.

Trevino hit his second and third homerun of the season in the fifth and seventh inning, accounting for the only runs on the day for ORU. Brandon King was the only other Golden Eagle with a hit on the day.

Alex Gonzalez (1-1) made his first start since February 24, pitching 7.1 innings with one earned run off five hits and three strikeouts.

The Bears (15-6) took three out of four from the Golden Eagles in the series thanks to a quality start from Clay Murphy (3-1) who pitched 7.2 innings allowing two hits and two runs with 10 strikeouts.

Luke Voit and Brock Chaffin once again carried the bears offensively, each recording a hit and an RBI.  

Missouri State took lead with an RBI-double in the first inning to score Spiker Helms, and added to that lead in the third when two runs scored off errors by Kevin Cho and Cam Schiller.

Trevino gave ORU life with a solo shot over the leftfield wall to make it 3-1, and then put the Golden Eagles within one with his second homerun to leftfield, but that would be the last offensive threat for ORU as they remain winless at Missouri State since 2007.

The Golden Eagles begin a three game series with No.11 Cal-State Fullerton on Thursday, March 22 at 8 p.m.
