Redhawks drill IPFW 26-7 to win series

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - A 10 run home half of the first inning was all the Redhawks needed to beat visiting IPFW 27-6 and take the three game series.

Southeast scored one run shy of the school record set back in 2007 against Freed-Hardeman.

The Redhawks (3-4) blistered the baseball to the tune of a .500 batting average (18-36).

Redshirt freshman Andy Lennington and OVC preseason player of the year Trenton Moses had a solid day at the plate, each recording three hits and driving in six runs.

IPFW starter Daniel Tursell threw 70 pitches in the first inning.

SEMO continues their ten game home stand when they open a two game series against Hannibal-LaGrange College Tuesday.
