OCU Baseball One Win From Regional Championship

The Blazer Baseball Squad took a big step on Tuesday with a 9-1 win over Johnson Bible College to advance to the championship game of the Mid East Regionals. OCU relied on pitching and defense to win over the Preachers at the VA Stadium in Chillicothe. Steven Vogelgesang picked up the win on the mound with a complete game performance giving up just 2 hits. "Our infield of Sines, Blevins, Keaton, and Peters played great defense behind Steven and that was the key to the win," summed up Coach Greg Bigam.

Offensively, OCU was led by catcher Max Ray who banged out 3 hits and had 4 rbi's. Peters and Keaton notched 2 hits each, while Blevins, Matt Bumpus, and Tae Spell all added a hit to the cause.

The Blazers now face Freewill Baptist College on Wednesday at the VA at 11:15. OCU needs one win for the championship while Freewill needs two wins over OCU to garner the championship.
