Thursday, February 28, 2013 - by Bryan Grisham
The Cleveland State baseball team loaded up the big bats for their road trip to Gordon College on Wednesday afternoon and made quick work of the Highlanders as they pounded out 15 hits in a 16-3 whitewashing of their hosts.
 
The Cougars wasted no time as they put a four spot on the board in their first turn at the dish. Ethan Davis plated the first run of the day with a groundout. Keith Buckhault followed with a two-run double and then came around to score on a passed ball for a quick 4-0 lead.

 
Gordon got a run back in the bottom the first on an RBI double from Aaron Mizzell and added another in the bottom of the second on a single from Devin Bonin. The Cougars added a run in the second on a sacrifice fly from Evan Speicher and then added three more in the third on two errors, a two-run double by Zach Janes and an RBI single from J.D. Cowart to push the lead to 8-2.
 
Cleveland State then put the game completely out of reach with a six run outburst in the top of the fourth. DeAndre Allen started the rally with a double and eventually scored on a wild pitch. Two Highlander miscues, a pair of plunked batters, a two-run double by Davis and RBIs from Cowart and Allen completed the rally and pushed he Cougar lead to 14-2.
 
Randall Coley joined the Cougar hit parade in the fifth with an RBI and then singled in another run in the seventh to cap off the impressive offensive output. Jordan Dyer singled in a run for the home team in the seventh, but it was too little to late as the Cougars stopped the rally and picked up the win.
 
Tyler Kilgore got the win for the Cougars (9-4) while Derek Chandler, Jeb Scoggins and Andre Wilson all pitched in relief. Dylan Peppers suffered the loss for Gordon College.
