Shawnee, Oklahoma- March 14, 2016- The game was forced into extra innings, and in the end, the Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) baseball team fell to St. Gregory’s University 5-4.  The nightcap of the doubleheader was suspended in the fifth inning due to darkness.  That game will resume at noon on Monday with SGU leading 7-4.

In game one, SGU picked up the early lead by scoring four runs in the bottom of the third.  The Cavaliers scored those four runs off of three hits and two SAGU errors.

In the top of the fourth, SAGU was able to score two runs. Jake Payonk doubled to right-center and was able to score after SGU dropped Raul Castro’s fly ball. Eric Hagstrom singled to short, scoring Castro.

In the top of the sixth, SAGU tied the game at four all. Griffin Glenn singled to left field. Derrick Clement came into the game to pinch run for Glenn.  On a 2-2 count, Eric Hagstrom hit a two run home run over the right field fence.

In the top of the seventh it looked hopeful for the Lions to score again, but they left one on base.

It took until the bottom of the ninth, but SGU scored on a wild throw, giving the Cavaliers a walk-off victory.

Jacob Keltner started on the mound and pitched six and 1/3 innings for the Lions. Carson Conarty pitched one and 2/3 innings in relief.

Hagstrom led SAGU offensively, going two for four with three RBI’s and one run.

In game two, the Cavs built a 3-0 lead entering the fourth inning.  SAGU took back the lead with a four-run fourth.  Unfortunately for the Lions, the lead was fleeting.  SGU countered with four runs of their own in the fourth.

Umpires convened following the fourth inning and determined it was too dark to continue. The game will resume from that exact point – with Glenn due to lead off the fifth for the Lions.
