BROOKINGS, S.D. (GoJacks.com) — For the second day in a row, the South Dakota State baseball team recorded a season high in hits. And for the second consecutive day, the Jackrabbits won a game via the 10-run rule, downing Briar Cliff, 13-2, in seven innings Wednesday afternoon at Erv Huether Field.
Drew Beazley struck out five, walked three and gave up two hits in his three innings on the mound for SDSU. Four freshman pitchers — Jon Baker, Joe Husak, Reece Arbogast and Alex Clemons — each worked one inning for the Jackrabbits as the staff combined for 12 strikeouts on the afternoon.
In notching their ninth win in their last 11 games, the Jacks improved to 15-17 overall. Briar Cliff dropped to 24-15 on the season.
The Jackrabbits are idle this weekend and are scheduled to return to action next Tuesday (April 26) at Minnesota. First pitch is slated for 6 p.m. at Siebert Field on the U of M campus in Minneapolis.
