The Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference’s 2014 tourney entered Day Two yesterday. The top seeded POINT PARK UNIVERSITY PIONEERS joined the fun and took the diamond against the 4th seeded BEREA COLLEGE MOUNTAINEERS. The two teams were tied up at 1-1 after the 1st Inning and remained in that state of affairs until the Pioneers took a 2-1 lead in the 4th. A big 5th inning for Point Park saw them notch 3 additional runs and with another run in the 8th for them plus a Berea run in the 7th the final score was Pioneers 6 Mountaineers 2. Manny Perdomo got the win with an 8 Inning performance for PPU.
Meanwhile the 3 seeds – the INDIANA UNIVERSITY SOUTHEAST GRENADIERS – improved to 2-0 in the tournament. The Grenadiers took on the 2nd seeded BRESCIA UNIVERSITY BEARCATS in a very odd game. The first three Innings went by with no runs recorded for either team but IUS put up a pair to take a 2-0 lead in the 4th. They added 3 more in the 5th Inning and 4 more in the 8th to walk away with a 9-1 victory. The lone Bearcat run came in the top of the 6th. Pitcher Clint Chestnut improved to 6-1 with the win.
The two Eagle teams who got relegated to the Loser’s Bracket the previous day bounced back. The 6th seeded ALICE LLOYD COLLEGE EAGLES pulled off a close upset with their 9-6 triumph over the 4th seeded Berea College, playing in their second game of the day. The Mountaineers are eliminated. ### And the ASBURY UNIVERSITY EAGLES – who came in as the 5 seeds – eliminated the 2nd seeded Brescia Bearcats, likewise playing in their second game of the day. The rest certainly helped the two Eagle squads as Asbury routed Brescia EIGHTEEN to SIX!
