Northwest Baseball Struggles in Kearney

Northwest baseball has a tough day up at Nebraska-Kearney

Posted: Mar 21, 2018 9:47 PM

The Northwest baseball team struggles out of the gate, falls to Nebraska-Kearney, 17-1 Wednesday. 

After two innings, things seemed O.K. for the Bearcats. Only facing a 3-1 deficit heading into the bottom of the third. That's where the wheels came off.

Kearney's Scott Platt hit a two-run home run to extend the Loper lead to four and didn't look back.

Northwest's Nathan Russell escaped the third, but the fourth was too much. Russell gave up eight earned runs in his outing lasting 3.1 innings. Reliever Jimmy McElwain came it to try and save the day, but it was much of the same. McElwain gave up seven earned runs in an inning pitched. Max Spitzmiller finished the day with an inning pitched and gave up two earned runs.

The Cats travel to Topeka to face Washburn in a three-game series. Game one starts at 4:00 p.m. Thursday, game two at 2:00 p.m. Friday and the final game 1:00 p.m. Saturday.

Temperatures today were slightly above average with highs in the mid 80s. Most of today was dry and sunny, but a weak cold front will move through late this afternoon into this evening giving us the chance for a few isolated showers and storms. Conditions will stay comfortable this weekend with highs in the mid 80s on Saturday and upper 80s on Sunday. Temperatures will start off above average on Monday before a cold front moves through. That front will give us additional rain chances Monday night and some much more fall like temperatures through the rest of the week.
