Goshen takes two from Foresters

 In their conference opener, the Foresters were swept by the Goshen College Maple Leafs losing 2-1 and 5-4 in the doubleheader.

In game one, HU (11-10, 0-2) manufactured a run in the top of the first on a walk to Austan Kas, a sacrifice bunt from Thad Frame and a RBI single by Andy Janzen, but that was all the scoring they would do as Goshen pitcher, Ben Taylor, held the Foresters to just one other hit in the game. The Leafs got three of their five hits in the bottom of the fourth to plate their two runs, and then Taylor quieted HU's bats the rest of the way to seal the win. Josh Clark went the distance in the loss for the Foresters. He allowed two runs on five hits while striking out three and walking one.

In game two, HU again took the early lead with two in the first and one in the third. Goshen got on the board with two in the fifth, but HU made it 4-2 with a run in their next at-bat. The Leafs then tied it at 4-4 with two more in the bottom of the sixth. Neither team scored in the seventh forcing the game into extra innings. Goshen finally got the game-winner in the bottom of the ninth on two singles a sacrifice bunt and a sac fly.

HU out-hit the Leafs 12-9. Blake Hindsley went 2-2 and drove in two runs to lead the Foresters at the plate. Korey Grow took the loss for HU. He gave up a run on four hits and three walks in three and a third innings of work.
