CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - SEMO baseball completed the series sweep with an 8-7 win over Western Illinois on Sunday.

Entering the 14th inning tied at 6, the Bulldogs scored the first run since the 7th inning to go on top 7-6. In the bottom half the Redhawks took flight.

Peyton Leeper singled to right field with one out and no one on then stole second base. Next batter Carlos Aranda drilled a double to center field that hit off the bottom of the wall. Leeper came around to score and tie the game at seven.

With the game-winning run at second, Chance Resetich stepped into the batters box and sent a grounder back up the middle and into center field. Aranda galloped around third and slid safely into home plate.
