ABILENE — Southeastern piled up 22 runs on 25 hits to earn a run-rule victory in eight innings over McMurry in Game 2 to earn a split in the doubleheader on Tuesday evening after dropping the opener 7-3.


The 22 runs and 25 hits mark the biggest offensive output for SOSU (13-14) since a 27-10 win over East Central on April 23, 2010 in a game in which the Storm put up 26 hits. All nine starters recorded hits.


Chevis Springer, Brayon Colley, Evan Ramsey and Trevos Bowen each collected four hits, while Jacob Carter, Ryan Salter, Chance Burcham and Cody Coats each had two. Bowen collected the game’s only home run and finished with five RBI, while Springer and Ramsey each drove in four. Jacob Soisson drove in a pair of runs.


SOSU got off to a rough start in Game 1, however, as the War Hawks put up two runs in the first and three more in the third to mount a 5-0 lead. Springer collected a pair of hits, while Soisson, Ramsey and Burcham each drove in a run.


The Storm have one game remaining in the series against the War Hawks slated for a 1 p.m. first pitch today.
