FAYETTE, MO. -- Central Methodist stretched its season-high win streak to seven games with two victories over Missouri Valley in Heart of America Athletic Conference baseball action at Estes Field. The Eagles rallied from two runs down in the sixth inning of game one for a 6-5 victory before cruising 9-2 against the Vikings in game two.

A double steal and three runs in the bottom of the sixth completed Central Methodist's (17-7, 13-3 HAAC) comeback in the Saturday's first game. Mike Wagner hit a two-run single to left field over the outstretched hand of shortstop Devin Burnworth to tie the game at five and advance pinch runner Brian King to third base. In the next at-bat, Wagner took off for second, inducing a throw down from catcher Anthony Corona. The throw was off line, allowing King to steal home for what proved to be the game-winning run.

Missouri Valley (2-25, 1-15 HAAC) entered Saturday's doubleheader in last place in the conference and losers of 13 straight but jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the second inning. Dominique Smith singled to left center, driving home Ruben Paniagua. The Eagles tied the affair in the bottom of the frame when Jesse Zellner scored on a fielder's choice.

The Vikings retook the lead by two runs on two occasions, starting in the third inning. Burnworth's RBI double allowed two runs to score, making the score 3-1. The Eagles again rallied with two runs in the bottom of the frame when T.J. Singh hit a solo shot, his second of the season, and Mike Allen plated Kyle Poynter on a RBI double to left.

Burnworth and Bob Warchuck hit RBI singles in the fifth and sixth innings, respectively, to build back a two-run cushion before the Eagles' bats came alive in the bottom of the sixth. Neal DeMartin and Allen got aboard via singles. After Daniel Peters was intentionally walked to load the bases with two outs, Wagner's single began the march to Central Methodist grabbing a one and a half game lead over Benedictine (Kan.) for first overall in the HAAC. The Eagles also lead Evangel (Mo.) by two and a half games in the East.

Singh, Zellner and Allen each had two hits for the Green and Black in game one. Allen and Wagner had two RBI apiece.

HAAC Pitcher and NAIA National Pitcher of the Week Drew Greiwe (6-0) tossed his fifth-straight complete game for the win, allowing five runs, four earned, on nine hits to go along with eight strikeouts.

Greiwe now has 125 career strikeouts, moving past Cory Cowsert (124 from 2009-10) for sixth on the school's all-time list. The Macon, Mo., product also garnered his 13th career win, tying him for seventh in school history with Brian Ash (1995-98), Doug Boyer (1992-95) and Tyler Pittenger (1990-93).
Jordan Amlong (0-6) took the loss on the mound in game one, surrendering six earned runs on 10 hits in six innings.

Burnworth was 3-for-4 at the plate in the first contest.

No rally was needed for the Eagles in the second contest, as Shane Lowe's first inning, two-run jack over the left field fence put the home team on top for good. The dinger was the fourth of the campaign for Lowe.

Central Methodist added three runs in the next frame on a throwing error and RBI single by Wagner. After the Vikings scored their first run in the fourth on a RBI walk, the Eagles tacked on four more in the bottom of the frame, highlighted by a two-run double by Singh.

Corona plated one run on a RBI ground out in the sixth, but Central Methodist pitcher Rhett Quinlan held the Vikings in check most of the afternoon.

Quinlan (4-2) picked up the victory with six innings of work, allowing two runs, one earned, on eight hits. He also recorded four strikeouts in the game to move into ninth on the school's all-time list with 109. Quinlan also notched his 14th win in only three seasons, tying Jeff Dodson (1989-91) for fifth on Central Methodist's career list.

The Eagles' Colby Stack pitched one inning of no-hit, scoreless relief.

Wagner, Zellner and Dustin Ray sparked the attack with two hits apiece. Lowe and Singh each had two RBI. Lowe and Peters each scored two runs.

Pitcher Brady Nowak (0-4) suffered the defeat, giving up five earned runs on three hits in only an inning and a third. He (3) and Reginald Hancock (4) combined for seven walks.

Both teams conclude the four-game series with a doubleheader on Sunday. First pitch from Estes Field is set for 1 p.m. CT.
