Patrick Clohisy (SLU) had two hits including a home run, and Jake McCutcheon (Missouri State) added two hits of his own in 13-4 loss for the O’Fallon Hoots (23-28)
Clohisy’s team-leading 10th home run went over the bullpen in the fourth inning. McCutcheon’s two hits were both hits, including a run-scoring single in the fifth.
On the mound, Aidan Haynes (Louisiana Monroe) pitched 2.1 innings in relief and struck out five in his Hoots debut. Trent Anderson (UMSL) followed him, pitching the final two innings and striking out four in his home debut for the Hoots.
The Cape Catfish (20-29) used a six-run fourth inning to provide them enough cushion to win the game. Colten Weber was credited with the win, tossing five innings and allowing four runs.
