Denison logs first win of 2014

Brandon Morgan's four hits helped Denison pick up its first win of the year.
Brandon Morgan's four hits helped Denison pick up its first win of the year.

Eight runs over the final two innings helped the Denison baseball secure its first victory of the 2014 season.  The Big Red knocked off previously undefeated Anderson University, 12-2, on Monday afternoon at Grady's Field in Xenia, Ohio.

DU jumped out to a 3-0 lead after scoring single runs in the second, third and fifth innings.  Sophomore catcher Brandon Morgan singled in Nick Marsit in the second, while junior Ryan Mulligan pushed across the other two runs.  Mulligan scored Alex Enrique on a sacrifice fly in the third, while a double in the fifth allowed Charlie Apfelbach to score from first.

The Ravens shrunk the deficit to one with a pair of runs in the bottom of the fifth.  Connor Morris scored on a base hit by Cole Heberling and Austin Young came around to score on a sac fly to center by Jeremy Shelmadine.

Denison regained a two-run lead when Apfelbach knocked in senior Andrew Touhy from second base.  In front by two with two outs on the board, the Big Red scored five times thanks to four hits and a two walks.  After a two-out triple by Morgan, sophomore Joe LaPlaca and junior Zac Lewinski drew back-to-back free passes to load the bases.  With the bases full, Touhy delivered a single that scored Morgan and LaPlace.  Apfelbach followed with a two-run double to clear the bags.  Apfelbach's double ended Ben Yoder's day after 2.2 innings and triggered a change that brought Nick Nunez into the game.  Mulligan greeted the new hurler the only way he knew how, with a single that drove in Apfelbach.

After opening the ninth with a leadoff walk, DU's Georgie Montes legged out a triple that scored Marsit from first.  Morgan picked up his fourth hit and second RBI of the day when his single plated Montes.  Two batters later, pinch hitter Lascelles Lagares doubled in Morgan for the Big Red's 12th and final run. In the bottom of the ninth, Kyle Colgain finished out his third inning of work by striking out the side.

Morgan finished 4-for-5 and was a home run shy of the cycle on Monday.  The sophomore drove in two runs and scored two more.  Apfelbach logged three hits, drove in three and scored a pair, while Mulligan and Touhy each had a pair of hits.  Mulligan knocked in three, while Touhy had two RBIs and two runs.  Senior Connor Murphy improved to 1-1 on the year after tossing six innings of two-run baseball.  Murphy scattered six hits and struck out five.  Colgain allowed just one hit and fanned seven in three shutout innings en route to his first-career save.

Heberling and Young each finished with two hits. Heberling and Shelmadine drove in Anderson's two runs, Young and Morris. Senior Blake Hall suffered his first loss of the season after allowing three runs on six hits in five innings. Hall also struck out two and walked three batters.

With the win, Denison improves to 1-2, while the loss drops the Ravens to 3-1.  The Big Red returns to the diamond on March 15 when they take on Trinity (Conn.) at Chain of Lakes Park in Winter Haven, Fla.
