University of Cincinnati baseball suddenly got going with three straight wins.
The Bearcats improved to 17:19 on Tuesday night with an overwhelming 15-5 win over Miami (OH) University’s RedHawks at Marge Schott Stadium.
The win weighed a little more heavily than Miami defeated UC 12-8 in 11 innings last Wednesday in the Joe Nuxhall Classic championship game hosted by UC.
UC followed 5-1 towards the fifth inning Tuesday before the offensive exploded for 14 runs in the final four innings.
“Our boys weren’t in a panic,” said UC head coach Scott Googins. “That was the big thing. Our boys stuck further away and gave good bats and good things happened … Our boys were ready to go. “
After an eleventh inning walk-off home run in the second game of the double headed game on Sunday with the University of Central Florida (UCF), UC sophomore left fielder Joey Wiemer knocked down an undoubted thing on Sheakley Lawn in the seventh inning to round out UC’s rating. He added a double and a single to end 3-of-4.
UC reliever Andrew Noelker took the win after giving up three hits in three innings and scoring four hits.
Typically a starting pitcher, UC senior AJ Kullman threw a goalless seventh inning for relief, recording a strikeout.
“[Googins] asked if I wanted to put a bullpen or an inning into the game, ”said Kullman. “I think the gaming experience is always a little better.”
The Bearcats headed for a three-game series at the University of Houston this weekend.
