LEBANON, IL -- The William Woods University baseball team added two more victories to its record on Friday, downing former American Midwest Conference foe McKendree University by 11-5 and 6-3 scorelines.

Robbie McMorris picked up his fourth win of the year, scattering four hits in six innings in the first game, while Gianfaro Randazzo picked up the win in relief in the second game for the Owls.

In the first game, William Woods jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the second. Derek Fletcher opened with a single to left, with Matt Thomas taking advantage of a fielding error by the McKendree center fielder. Zach Woody plated both runners with a double to left. A Jordan Thompson single allowed Woody to score.

WWU continued to roll, scoring in every inning and building a 9-0 lead before the host Bearcats were able to light the scoreboard in the bottom of the fifth. The teams matched pace in the sixth and seventh innings, scoring one run apiece in each half-inning for a final score of 11-4.

The Owls recorded 12 hits and saw four McKendree errors in the first game, allowing just five hits and being charged with two errors.

In the second game of the doubleheader, WWU again opened with three runs in the top of the second and added two in the third, but McKendree was able to answer with one in the bottom of the fourth after holding the Owls scoreless in the top half of the frame.

WWU was able to push the margin back to 6-1 in the top of the fifth, with Brian Carr doing much of the work himself. He led off the inning with a single, stole second, then advanced to third on a fly out. A single up the middle from Watson pushed the run across.

McKendree was able to pull two runs back in the bottom of the fifth with a two-run homerun from Brandon Gargus, but the Owls were able to get out of the inning as Randazzo sandwiched a pair of strikeouts around a double to retire the side.

WWU moves to 13-5 on the year while the Bearcats fall to 3-11 on the slate. The two teams will close out the series with a doubleheader on Saturday. First pitch is set for noon.
