Embry-Riddle Baseball’s World Series Run Comes to an End

The Embry-Riddle baseball team made history Monday when they played in their first NAIA World Series game. Tuesday, the Eagles made history again when they got their first World Series win. It wasn’t even a contest as Riddle obliterated Oklahoma City 10-0. Travis Strickler drove in three runs. Blake Moore drove in two runs and scored two runs. Jesse Kaphing got the complete game victory, striking out seven.

In their second game of the day, the Eagles had a rematch with British Columbia. The Thunderbirds took an early 2-0 lead, but Riddle tied it up in the top of the fourth. BC scratched out runs in the fourth and fifth innings to regain the lead. Javier Izaguirre drew the Eagles to within a run with an RBI single in the seventh, but British Columbia held on for the 4-3 win.

That brings Embry-Riddle’s season to an end, with an overall record of 30-20.
