Dallas Baptist Finishes Sweep of Siena Nine
The Siena baseball team lost a 14-6 decision at Dallas Baptist Saturday in the final game of its eight day, nine-game Texas tour. The Saints lost their last eight games of the trip after defeating Arkansas State in the season opener.
The Saints are searching for their first NCAA Tournament win, something they almost pulled off in dramatic fashion Friday night.
A pair of right-handed juniors will face off Saturday. Ed Lewicki (4-7, 5.02 ERA) gets the start for Siena, Paul Voelker (9-4, 3.16 ERA) will start for Dallas Baptist.
The Patriots won 40 games (40-20) and are coming off a week in which they won the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament. DBU has won nine of its last 11 despite dropping a 2-1 decision to No. 3 seed Sam Houston State Friday. They entered the Championships with an RPI of 28.
The winner of Saturday's game will advance to face the loser of the TCU/Sam Houston State game Sunday at 3:30 p.m. in another elimination game.
