COLLEGE BASEBALL: Grenadiers’ season ends with 8-6 loss to Point Park

IU Southeast can’t hold on to 5-1 lead in title game

NEW ALBANY — The IU Southeast baseball team’s season ended Saturday as Point Park claimed the KIAC title with an 8-6 victory.

The Grenadiers (27-27) trailed 1-0 before erupting for five runs in the fifth inning. IU Southeast loaded the bases and Frank Pluskota delivered with a bases-clearing double to make it 3-1 in support of starter Joey Harness.

The Pioneers stormed back in the sixth with five runs of their own and added one each in the seventh and the ninth to take an 8-5 lead into the bottom of the ninth.

Senior Justin Hurst hit a solo home run to left in the bottom of the ninth to try and spark a late rally, but that would be the only run IU Southeast could muster.

Evan Bickett took the loss to finish the season at 2-5.

Point Park wins the KIAC title in its first season in the league.
