Dordt def. Dakota Wesleyan 4-0
HOW IT HAPPENED
The Dordt Defenders got a strong pitching performance in game two of their doubleheader with Dakota Wesleyan and secured a sweep with a 4-0 win on Saturday in Sioux Center.
Dordt got a solo homerun by Logan Cline to start its first inning and Cline knocked in a run with triple in the third and later scored on a Luke November single.
Dordt added to the lead with a run in the seventh when November singled in Nolan Christianson for a 4-0 lead.
While Dordt’s offense was getting on the board Logan Horne was in command on the mound. The senior righthander struck out nine and walked three while surrendering two hits. Horne worked out of trouble in the first inning when Wesleyan had runners at first and third with no one out but couldn’t get the timely hit.
Nick Yeager preserved the shutout with two innings of relief work and allowed one hit.
Logan Cline was 3-4 and reached base on all four appearances. He was a single shy of the cycle and knocked in two runs and scored two.
Luke November was 3-4 with two runs batted in and Dylan Stanley had a double.
Horne went seven innings and struck out nine and Yeager got the save with four strikeouts and he faced nine batters in the final two innings.
