With just six home games remaining at the Ballpark at Benedictine, the Raven baseball team wrapped up cross divisional HAAC play on Saturday with a split against the leader in the east division Evangel University.
Evangel (23-13, 12-6 HAAC) took game one 9-4, before Benedictine (7-24, 5-13 HAAC) rallied to take game two, 7-2.
Harrisison gave up just two more runs, scattering four hits over the remaining five innings to give the Ravens a shot at the win. He also struckout seven while walking just one.
Offensively, the Ravens recorded seven hits at the plate and came up with a three-run fifth to put the pressure back on the Crusaders but couldn't get any closer than three runs as Evangel held off the late-inning comeback.
In game two, Adam Burns earned the start for the Ravens. He held the Crusaders to just two runs off six hits over nine innings to earn the win.
At the plate, the Ravens scoring was kicked off by a solo home run off the bat of Josh Kagarise in the bottom of the second. That home run sparked the Ravens offense and led to six unanswered runs over the next two innings, which proved to be more than enough in support of Burns.
Burns finished with six strikeouts while walking just two Crusaders to pick up the complete-game win.
At the plate, in addition to Kagarise's home run, the Ravens recorded five extra-base hits. Hunter McDaniel wieht 2 for 5 with a triple, double, three RBIs and a run scored. Chris Johnson went 3 for 4 with a double and RBI while Heit and Patrick Walseth each recorded a double in the win.
The Ravens wrap up their home schedule on Thursday and Saturday this week as they take on Avila University back at the Ballpark. First pitch both days is scheduled for 1 p.m. This series with Avila also marks the end of an era as the baseball program will move to the Asher Sports Complex for the 2015 season.
