LSUS falls in opening round of NAIA tournament

The no. 24 LSU Shreveport Pilots got a good outing from Cade Bowen on Thursday afternoon but could not provide any runs support as the fell to the no. 18 Madonna Crusaders 8-0 at Olympic Field on day one of the 2013 NAIA Baseball National Championship Opening Round in the Cleveland bracket.

LSUS (40-17) has their work cut out for them now as they must win five straight games, four over the next two days to stay alive in the Opening Round. The Pilots will face elimination tomorrow at noon ET against the five seeded Grand View Vikings who lost their opener to Avila 7-0. LSUS will be the home team.

Today Bowen (5-4) allowed two runs in the in the third and fourth innings and was lights out keeping the Pilots in the game working perfect innings five other times. Bowen scattered 10 hits but only two were hit hard and seven came in the third and fourth innings. He finished with four strikeouts and did not walk a batter.

LSUS reliever Riley Spencer surrendered four earned runs in his two-thirds of an inning of relief work.

The Pilot bats managed only five hits against Madonna starter Matthew Cook who did a great job the whole game working ahead of the Pilot hitters as he controlled nearly every at bat. The only two hitters in the lineup that had any success off Cook were K. J. Semien and Greg Friesen. Semien was 2-for-4 while Friesen was 3-for-4 but that was all the Pilots could do offensively.

Madonna (37-9) started the third inning with three straight hits that started their first of three rallies. The Crusaders will face the Lee/Avila winner tomorrow at 3:30 ET. The 18th ranked team had multi-hit games from only three with Steve Pelletier going 2-for-5, Donny Holland was 2-for-4, and the nine-hole hitter Alex Charles was a perfect 4-for-4.
