FAYETTE, Mo. - Central Methodist won its season-high ninth straight game following a doubleheader sweep of Missouri Valley in Heart of America Athletic Conference baseball action Sunday at Estes Field. The Eagles also swept their second consecutive four-game conference series.

Central Methodist's Kyle Poynter was responsible for all four RBI in a 4-1 decision in the first contest. The Eagles charged out to a 12-run lead in game two and withstood a furious Vikings' comeback in the seventh for a 13-12 victory.

The Eagles trailed 1-0 in the bottom of the fourth inning of game one, but Poynter erased the deficit with a three-run shot to left. The junior right fielder jacked his second homer to left of the contest, a solo shot, and fourth of the season in the sixth for the final margin.
Poynter was 3-for-3 at the plate with four RBI and two runs scored in game one. Daniel Peters was 2-for-3.

Tyler Paule (3-2) earned the win on the mound with a complete game, allowing just one earned run on five hits.

Pitcher, Kevin Key (0-3) took the loss, surrendering three earned runs on five hits in three and one-third innings. He also was charged with three of the team's six walks.

The second contest Sunday looked to be completely one sided with Central Methodist racing out to a 9-0 lead through the first three innings. The Eagles started with four runs in the first, as Neal DeMartin and Jesse Zellner came through with RBI singles before Dustin Ray took a Brandon Cooper offering to left for a two-run dinger, his second of 2013.

Daniel Peters and Shane Lowe each laced a RBI double to right in the second frame, increasing the margin to 6-0. Mike Allen's first homerun of the season, a three-run blast over the left field fence in the third, made the difference nine before Bob Warchuck got the Vikings on the board for the first time with a solo homerun in the top of the fourth inning.

Central Methodist stretched its advantage to nine runs, 13-4, after Eli Bowers plated Brock Grant in the sixth and appeared to have the game in hand before Missouri Valley mounted a comeback attempt.

Anthony Corona's RBI hit to left field was the first of six run-scoring singles in the top of the seventh. The Eagles used three pitchers in the frame to squash the rally, which ended when Colby Stack induced back-to-back outs on a bases-loaded force at home and pop up to Brian King.

Twelve different Eagles had at least one hit in game two, led by DeMartin, Poynter and Allen with two apiece. Allen had three RBI, while Ray and T.J. Singh each had two.

Mike Wagner (6-1) got the victory on the mound in game two, holding the Vikings to only one earned run on three hits in five innings to go along with six strikeouts.

Pitcher Brandon Cooper (1-7) suffered the defeat, giving up six runs, three earned, on seven hits in only two innings.

Central Methodist, which holds a three-game lead on Evangel for first place overall in the HAAC and the Eastern Division, will face the Crusaders on the road in a four-game series April 19-20. First pitch on Friday, April 19, is set for 1 p.m. CT.
