SPRINGFIELD, IL -- The William Woods University baseball team picked up a series split against Benedictine University-Springfield. The Owls dropped the opening game of the doubleheader 6-12, hanging on to win the series finale 3-2. Adam Brush picked up the win for the Owls, with Jon Hecht taking the loss in the opener. Derek Fletcher hit a pair of home runs - one in each game - on the afternoon.

The Bulldogs opened up the first game with a run in the bottom of the first inning, but William Woods answered in the top of the third. Blake Wilson led off the inning with a walk, moving to second on a sacrifice bunt from Derek Fletcher. Wilson swiped third before scoring on a wild pitch.

The Owls threatened again in the fourth and the fifth, but stranded runners in both innings. After a scoreless sixth, Chris Fletcher sent a 3-1 pitch out of the ballpark to lead off the seventh. WWU put two runners aboard and despite stranding them, Matt Thomas came on in the bottom of the seventh and closed out the game to pick up his sixth save on the year. Kyle Burns picked up the win in relief to move to 3-0.

WWU would score a run in the top of the first in the nightcap, as Damon Adrian scored on a single from Robert Butvin. The Owls threatened in the top of the second as well, but stranded runners on the corners.

Benedictine-Springfield would answer with two runs in the bottom of the second and closed out the game, allowing just two WWU hits over the next five innings. Brian Carr took the loss for the Owls, falling to 2-4 on the year.

In the second game the Owls opened the scoring in the top of the first inning with one run, but the Bulldogs equalized in the bottom of the first and scored in each of the first five innings to close out the game.

In the nightcap, the two teams locked horns in a defensive duel through the opening three innings, with WWU opening the scoring in the top of the fourth. Fletcher led off the inning with a first-pitch home run to deep left field, with Robert Butvin following up with a double. After Blake Wilson struck out, Austin Clapp plated Butvin with a double of his own.

The Bulldogs were finally able to level the score in the bottom of the sixth, but William Woods retook the lead in the top of the seventh and slammed the door on Benedictine-Springfield in the bottom of the seventh.

WWU moves to 24-13 on the year, with a 9-7 mark in AMC action. The Owls host Central Methodist University in a doubleheader on Tuesday night. First pitch is set for 5 p.m.
