SCORE

Doane defeats Dordt 9-1

HOW IT HAPPENED

A six run sixth inning pushed Doane to a 9-1 win in game one of its doubleheader with Dordt in Sioux Center on Thursday night.

The game was originally scheduled for Saturday but was moved due to a poor forecast.

Doane put one on the board in the first but Dordt answered in the second inning with Justin Silva getting hit by a pitch.  Silva advanced to second on a wild pitch and to third on a passed ball and scored on Chris Schrieber’s sacrifice fly.

The tie was short lived as Coane scored two on a two run homerun by Tommy Anderson over the left field fence.

The 3-1 lead held until a six run, five hit uprising in the top of the sixth that put the game out reach.
