For the second straight weekend, Seattle University baseball (18-9, 6-0 WAC) swept their Western Athletic Conference series, improving to 6-0 in league play to start the season. The Redhawks defeated Chicago State (6-20, 0-6 WAC) in both games of the doubleheader, both in seven innings, earning a 14-1 win in game one and a 12-2 win in game two.

Among Redhawks with three or more plate appearances on the day, Sheldon Stober (Kent, Wash.) went 5-for-8 at the plate (.625) with two doubles and three RBI. Brock Carpenter (Milton, Wash.), Jeffrey Morgan (Auburn, Wash.), and Griffin Andreychuk (Nanaimo, B.C.) drove in a team-high four RBI apiece on the day.

Carpenter and Jack Reisinger (San Juan Capistrano, Calif.) each hit a home run for Seattle U on the day while Curtis Perrin (Vancouver, Wash.), Dalton Hurd (Bend, Ore.), and Reisinger collected a hit in each at bat on the day, with one, two, and three hits, respectively.

A singular big inning for Seattle U in each game sealed the Cougars’ fate as the Redhawks scored 11 runs in the seventh in game one and 10 runs in the second inning in game two. They collected six and nine hits, respectively, in these two innings alone as they outhit Chicago State 14-2 and 16-3 in the pair of games.

On the mound, Ted Hammond (Shoreline, Wash.) improved to 5-1 on the season with a win in game one, striking out seven batters while allowing just one run in six innings pitched. In game two, Nick Meservey (Scottsdale, Ariz.) picked up the win, also striking out seven batters while allowing just two runs to improve to 4-1 on the season.

The Redhawks continue their seven-game road trip with a three-game WAC series at North Dakota next weekend before facing Washington at Husky Stadium on Tuesday, Apr. 12. SU returns home to face Corban University on Wednesday, Apr. 13 before a three-game league home series vs. Grand Canyon on Apr. 15-17.
