Southeast baseball teams sweeps doubleheader

Friday, May 20, 2011

The Southeast Missouri State baseball team swept Friday's Ohio Valley Conference doubleheader from visiting Eastern Illinois, 9-5 and 9-6.

Southeast improved to 31-20 overall and 13-8 in OVC play. EIU fell to 18-32 and 9-11.

Coach Mark Hogan recorded his 500th career win at Southeast. He is 500-418-1 in his 17th season.

The Redhawks remained second in the nine-team OVC with one regular-season game remaining, Saturday's 1 p.m. series finale against the Panthers.

Southeast also remained one-half game ahead of third-place Jacksonville State in the battle to finish second and earn a first-round bye for next week's Ohio Valley Conference tournament.

Jacksonville State swept a doubleheader from last-place Morehead State Friday. Southeast must either win Saturday or have Jacksonville State lose in order to clinch second place and the tournament bye.
