They were able to redeem themselves in game two with a score of 4-2. On Saturday, April 22, the Roadrunners split the games again, finishing the series 2-2. They are now 22-8 overall and 12-4 in conference, leaving them in the number one spot.

Head Coach Ryan Gipson thinks the key players this week included Logan Hatley, Damon Peters, and Jack Bauer.

A sophomore pitcher, Hatley currently leads the NWAC in wins.

“My favorite part about playing at LB is my team, I think coaches do a good job with who they pick,” said Hatley, who plans to play baseball at OSU next year.

The second key player, Peters, is a freshman third baseman. After LB he plans on playing baseball at a four-year university.

“I love the team atmosphere,” said Peters.

Last but not least was Bauer, a sophomore catcher.

“He’s a great developing player,” said Coach Gipson.

Bauer also plans on playing baseball for a four-year university.

“I like being able to build our own dynasty and legacy,” said Bauer.
