OWENSBORO, Kentucky - Asbury baseball kept things close on Saturday after dropping two to the host Bearcats of Brescia University on Friday, but in the end it was the hosts who came away with the series sweep, taking all four games from the Eagles this weekend.
The Eagles fell by scores of 4-2 and 7-2 in Saturday's twinbill.
Brescia captured the lead in the first inning of game one on the day. Johnson's sac fly scored one run for Brescia. AU tied it up in the top of the third inning with two runs but Brescia took the lead for good with two runs in the bottom half of the inning.
Another offensive outburst by the Bearcats in the first inning had the Eagles playing catch-up the rest of the way in game two. Brescia scored four runs in the bottom of the first and never looked back.
The Eagles will travel to Berea on Tuesday night to take on the Mountaineers in a single nine inning contest.
