Where good news shines
Baseball season? Already?
At Metro State, it is. The Roadrunners last weekend opened their season with a three-game sweep of Northwestern Oklahoma State.
MSU-Denver posted 6-1, 13-10 and 11-6 wins.
Ross Smith and Zach Schuler showed the Roadrunners have some pop in the lineup, combining for 30 total bases over three games. Smith, a sophomore from Broomfield, and Schuler, a California native, each had a pair of home runs and combined for 13 RBI.
Andrew Hayes, Reichle Arcilise and Reese Lansville logged pitching wins, while 12 Roadrunner pitchers got time on the mound.
MSU-Denver next has an eight-game road swing before returning to Assembly Athletic Complex against Mary (N.D.) on Feb. 24-26.
