ORU Baseball Gets A Shutout Win

Posted: Updated:

A key defensive sequence backed up an early game home run as the Oral Roberts University baseball team slipped by the Incarnate Word Cardinals by a tally of 2-0 on Wednesday at J.L. Johnson Stadium.

Despite being a contest between two Southland Conference member schools, Wednesday’s game was played as a non-conference contest. The victory moved ORU’s record to 9-10 on the season, while the Cardinals dropped to 6-15.

Jose Trevino had two of the Golden Eagles’ five hits in the game, including a solo home run to left in the second inning, his fourth blast of the season. Logan Domenico followed with a double and scored on an Audie Afenir single up the middle for the 2-0 win.

Anthony Sequeira added a double in the bottom of the seventh and Tyler Boss picked up a single.

Two ORU streaks ended in the contest as Matt Brandy had a 19-game hitting streak come to an end, as did a 17-game on-base streak by Emmanuel Forcier. However, Brandy did reach on an error in the eighth inning to extend his on-base streak to 20 contests.

Pepe Gomez (1-2) had a career evening on the mound as he made his longest appearance as a Golden Eagle with seven innings of work and a career high six strikeouts in the start. Jordan Romano entered the game in the eighth and recorded a five-out save, his fourth, with two strikeouts.

Aaron Warren led the Cardinals with two hits, including a double, while Geno Encina (2-4) took with loss in five innings of work.

The Golden Eagles turned a pair of double plays in the game, including one with the bases loaded in the eighth inning. Romano snagged a comebacker to the mound, tossing it to Afenir at home who gunned it to first for the 1-2-3 DP, preserving the lead.

In the ninth, after UIW’s Slade Brown extended his on-base streak to 22 games, the Golden Eagles picked off a pinch runner for the first out. Romano then struck out the final two batters to close the game.

ORU hits the road for its first Southland road series of the season as they travel to face McNeese State in Lake Charles, La., for three games. First pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Friday.
