WINTER HAVEN, Fla. – The Mount Vernon Nazarene University baseball team was edged out by Missouri Valley College Monday afternoon in a 9-inning game at Chain O' Lakes Stadium.
- Score: MVNU 4, MVC 5
- Records: MVNU 10-6 | MVC 8-6
- Location: Chain O' Lakes Stadium | Winter Haven, Fla.
- Neither team was able to put much offense together in the first six innings. MVC held a 2-0 lead as the Cougars came to the plate in the 7th. MVNU scored two in the bottom of the frame to tie the score.
- Aaron Saal singled in the bottom of the 8th and would eventually score on a passed ball to give the Cougars a 3-2 lead heading into the 9th.
- Missouri Valley took advantage of two Cougar errors in the top of the 9th, plating three runs to take a 5-3 lead.
- MVNU loaded the bases after Axel Carreras was hit by a pitch, Drew Ritchey walked, and Brandt Miller bunted for a base hit. A fielder's choice scored Carreras, but that would be all the offense the Cougars could produce, falling 5-4.
- Yanni Patten: 2-for-3, BB
- Brandt Miller: 2-for-3
