Baseball Stopped by Washington-St. Louis

GREENVILLE, Ill. -- The baseball team struggled in the opening game of a three-game weekend series against Washington University as the Bears defeated Greenville 11-1 in a game shortened to seven innings.  Tim Osborne provided the lone bright spot for the Panthers as he knocked his team-high eighth home run of the season.

Derek Reckmann started on the mound for Greenville, permitting seven runs on eight hits and four walks over four innings.  He struck out three before yielding the way to Jason Collingwood who gave up four runs in just two-thirds of an inning.  The 11 runs permitted by Reckmann and Collingwood were all that the Bears would receive as Michael Wittmer and Phillip Reedy combined to hurl 2 1/3 scoreless innings.

A lone Washington run started the scoring in the top of the second.  The Bears scored four in the fourth and six in the fifth as they took control.  Osborne's home run came in Greenville's half of the fourth inning.

The Panthers (17-16) continue their series against Washington on the road Saturday in St. Louis in a Noon doubleheader.
