Spring Training 2011 vs. Mt. Vernon Nazarene

Rob Coe recorded three more RBIs to add to his team leading total (14) as the Warhawks defeated Mt. Vernon Nazarene 8-6 on Monday in Auburndale, Florida. UW-W has won three straight and improves to 6-1 while Mt. Vernon Nazarene falls to 8-5. UW-W got on the board first in the top of the first when Coe pushed his first RBI across the plate on a ground out. UW-W built on that lead with two more in the top of the third, again thanks to Coe. Coe doubled in Daniel Putnam and Matt Meisenheimer who reached on back-to-back singles to start the inning. Mt. Vernon Nazarene closed the gap to 3-1 in the bottom of the fourth scoring one run on a double to right center, but UW-W continued to pull away going up 5-1 in the top of the fifth and adding one more in the sixth. The Cougars tightened the score at 6-2 in the bottom of the sixth scoring a run on a single through the right side of the infield but two more UW-W insurance runs in the top of the eighth proved to be the difference in the game as Mt. Vernon plated four in the bottom half of the inning. Eric Schmitz struck out the final batter of the inning and got the Cougars to go 1-2-3 in the bottom of the ninth.
