SMSU Makes Themselves At Home, Sweeps NSU



Bookmark and Share

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Steven Kremer drilled a two-run go-ahead home run in the seventh inning to help lead Southwest Minnesota State to a 7-6 victory over Northern State on Saturday night and complete a twin bill sweep for SMSU.  The Mustangs won the opener 3-2 behind a strong pitching effort from Steven Wehr.

 

SMSU with the two victories improves to 12-22-1 overall, 7-13 NSIC, and kept its NSIC tournament hopes alive.  NSU drops to 13-23, 6-16 NSIC, and has now lost 12 straight games.

 

In the opener, Wehr (1-3) pitched into the seventh inning (the longest outing of his career), allowing six hits, two runs (one earned) with four strikeouts and two walks to pick up the victory.

 

NSU scored the game’s first run in the fourth inning on a two-out fielding error, but SMSU quickly answered in the top of the fifth.

 

NSU starting pitcher Nathan Nietfeld retired the first 12 batters of the game, but Kyle Young started the rally in the fifth for the Mustangs with a leadoff single to left field.  Steven Kremer followed with a double to left-center field to tie the game and later scored on a throwing error by the NSU catcher to give SMSU the lead.  Tanner Neale capped the scoring with a sac fly to score Ryan Engels and push the margin to 3-1.

 

Wehr started the seventh inning, but allowed back-to-back singles before being relieved by Corby McGlauflin.  The SMSU closer ended the game with a ground out, strikeout and ground out to seal the victory for SMSU and pick up his third save of the season.

 

SMSU was held to just three hits in the opener.
