On a perfect Wednesday afternoon in Huntington, West Virginia, Ohio took one of two games in a doubleheader against the Marshall Thundering Herd.

Game One

The Georgetown Tigers proved to be as good in person as they are on paper, as the Rio Grande RedStorm (27-16) dropped both games of a doubleheader to the Tigers. Pitching was the Tigers’ strong suit throughout the day.

The Rio Grande RedStorm traveled to Miami-Hamilton to take on the Harriers on Tuesday evening and cruised to a 12-3 victory to win their fourth game out of their last five. Kirk Yates led the RedStorm, going 2 for 4 with three RBIs and a run.

With a trip to Huntington, W.Va., awaiting the Ohio Bobcats on Wednesday, the team looks to rebound from a two-game skid and bring out the bats against Marshall.

The ‘Cats come in having scored only five total runs in their last four games (and won two of those games against Miami).

On Wednesday, the Rio Grande Redstorm (27-14) will resume play after splitting a doubleheader on Monday with No. 8 Lindsey Wilson (38-6) against the second-ranked team in the Mid-South Conference in Georgetown College (25-11).

Walking into the practice room in the Convocation Center, the stench of sweat is overwhelming. Wrestlers slam into one another as they drain every ounce of their strength. The walls are lined with padding because when two wrestlers are wrapped up in a match, their sense of location gets lost.
