Lions drop final two games in Omaha
Omaha, Neb. -- The Missouri Southern baseball team lost both ends of a double-header today at Nebraska-Omaha, falling 9-0 and 4-2 to the Mavericks in the final two games of the weekend series.
Southern (16-22, 12-20 MIAA) managed just four hits on Omaha (24-11, 20-11 MIAA) pitchers Zach Croonquist and Andrew Reck in game one. Dallas Burke, Patrick Deao, Tee Helsel and Zach Campbell all had a hit each for the Lions in the game.
A four-run first inning in game two proved to be enough for the Mavericks in the nightcap.
Omaha sent nine batters to the plate in the first with the big hit coming from a three-run home run off the bat of Trevor Gapa.
The Lions will be back in action next weekend with double-headers on both Friday and Saturday.
