Bruins make quick work of Concordia

SEWARD, Neb. – Bellevue showed why it is receiving votes in the national poll as it rolled over Concordia 19-2 and 12-0 in run-ruled shortened games on a chilly Tuesday night. An 11-run first inning for the Bruins in game one set the tone for a rough day for the host Bulldogs in non-conference action. Concordia slumped to 9-18 overall.

Bellevue pounded out 32 combined hits in the doubleheader to run its mark to 26-7. The Midlands Collegiate Athletic Conference leader slugged 16 extra base hits, including four home runs on the day. Shortstop Amanda Neumann cleaned up, going 6-for-7 with two home runs, eight RBIs and five runs in the doubleheader.

The Bulldogs got their only two runs on the evening in the third inning of game one on Angela Harstad’s single to right that brought home Liz Maxwell and Clarissa Beving. Starting pitcher Julia Tyree notched Concordia’s only other hit in the game.

The Bulldogs managed four hits in the second game, but never more than one in a single inning as Bellevue’s Shelby Kindelin fired a five-inning shutout.

The Bulldogs continue a busy week at home with doubleheaders at Plum Creek Park on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday – all against GPAC foes. These games will all be webcast live via the Concordia Sports Network.
