Coach Frame’s crew dominated the 2017 Baseball All-Conference honors as nine different Foresters earned some sort of All-Conference badge as announced by the Crossroads League earlier this morning.

Of the four starting pitchers named All-Conference, HU landed three of those spots in senior Tanner Wyse, sophomore DJ Moore and freshman Mason Shinabery.

Wyse has accumulated six wins this season against two losses. In his 54.1 innings on the mound, he has limited opponents to a .246 batting average, the 7th lowest in the league, and 57 hits, 26 runs and 16 walks while striking out 62. He ranks 4th in earned runs allowed at 22, 6th in conference play with his 3.28 ERA and 3rd in batters struck out per 9 at 9.25.

Moore leads the league in wins with eight and has given up 53 hits, 26 runs, and 16 walks while striking out 48 in his 59.1 innings pitched. He claims a 3.03 ERA and is holding opponents to a .228 batting average to rank 3rd and 4th in the league respectively. He also ranks 5th among his conference peers in hits allowed per game (8.04) and 3rd in earned runs allowed (20).

Shinabery (5-2) has spent 56 innings in the circle and claims the league’s least amount of runs scored (16) as well as hits allowed (46). He also boasts the 2nd lowest ERA (2.25) in the conference and has given up the 2nd fewest earned runs (14) while earning the 3rd spot in opponent batting average (.225).

The Foresters also landed three position players on the All-Conference Team.

For the second straight year, senior Dalton Combs claimed a spot on the team as an outfielder. As one of the most dangerous hitters in the league, he is batting a team-leading .409 to rank 2nd in the league.

Combs sits atop the conference in slugging percentage (.677) and on base percentage (.517) and is among the top three in five other categories including 2nd in runs scored per game (1.11), 2nd in hits per game (1.52), 2nd in total bases per game (2.52), 3rd in on base percentage (.486) and 3rd in doubles per game (.41). Combs has amassed a team-best 67 hits so far this season which includes 27 for extra bases, a team-high 49 runs and 37 RBI.

After earning Honor Mention accolades last year, senior Shea Beauchamp was named the All-Conference first baseman this season. The heavy hitter has logged 49 hits, which includes seven doubles and 14 dingers, and a team-best 58 RBI. He is sitting atop the league in runs batted in per game (1.32) and home runs per game (.32) and ranks 5th in the league in total bases per game (2.23) and 6th in slugging percentage (.620).

Junior Adam Roser also earned All-Conference honors as the league’s top shortstop. To date he claims a .342 batting average and has collected 54 hits, 13 for extra bases, and 33 RBI. He’s drawn a team-best 31 walks and carries a .448 on base percentage. Defensively, Roser turned 24 double plays and has committed 12 errors at the shortstop position for a .927 fielding percentage.

A trio of Huntington seniors were also honored by the Crossroads League as members of the Gold Glove and Honorable Mention teams.

Mike Crowley, a three-time conference honoree, is currently hitting .346 and has tallied 46 hits on the year which includes ten doubles and seven homers while driving in 33 runs. He carries a .579 slugging percentage and has racked up 77 total bases. He has committed five errors on the year for a .983 fielding percentage. The first sacker has tallied 286 chances and 263 putouts to rank 3rd among his league peers in chances per game (6.98) and putouts per game (6.42).

As Huntington’s second baseman, Dylan Henricks has turned 25 double plays and registers a .953 fielding percentage to date. He has racked up 92 assists which ranks him 7th in the league in assists per game at 2.36. He is currently carrying a .325 batting average while slugging out 39 hits, 12 for extra bases. He has scored 34 runs and driven in 33 more.

Andy Roser has saved his best for last. The third baseman has collected 40 hits, including 15 doubles, two triples and two homers, and 37 RBI. His name appears is in the top ten in the league in five different offensive categories which includes being ranked 2nd in doubles per game (.43), 5th in batting average (.385), 5th in slugging percentage (.625), 5th in runs batted in per game (1.06) and 6th in triples per game (.06). Defensively, he’s committed just three errors at the hot spot for a fielding percentage of .946.

Rounding out the awards was Coach Mike Frame earning Coach of the Year honors as voted on by his peers. To date, Frame has posted 803 victories against 664 losses. Along the way, he has guided the Foresters to eight regular season conference championships and eight tournament conference championships. His teams have earned three bids to the NAIA World Series. He has coached 12 NAIA All-Americans and five of his players have gone on to play professionally.

It was history in the making Wednesday afternoon at Taylor University’s Winterholter Field as the top-seeded Huntington baseball team breezed past 3rd-seeded Marian University 15-3 to claim the Crossroads League tournament championship. The win is the Foresters’ seventh tourney title but more importantly, marks the first time in program history that HU has been crowned the league regular season champs as well as the tournament champs.

After giving up a run in the top of the first, Coach Frame’s crew reeled off the game’s next nine runs to open up a 9-1 lead by the fourth inning. The game was never in question after that and was reminiscent of the whole tournament as HU’s average margin of victory throughout the tourney was just under 11 runs. The Foresters outscored their league foes 53-10 over the course of the four-day tournament.

Huntington scored at least two runs in five of the nine innings with the fourth frame proving to be the most productive as they scored six times, all of the unearned variety, by way of four Knight errors and just one hit. But it was baseball’s biggest hit of them all as Mike Crowley unloaded for his seventh dinger of the year with bases loaded for a rare grand slam.

While Crowley highlighted HU’s offense, it was a well-balanced Forester attack when all was said and done. Tyler Zimske blasted a two-run shot over the left field fence in the bottom of the sixth and scored three times. Dalton Combs, beaned three times, tripled in two runs and also scored three times while Shea Beauchamp finished with a hit and three RBI.

Just as Forester fans have come to enjoy a high octane offense, they have also come to appreciate HU’s lock down pitching and today’s performance at the mound didn’t disappoint. Connor West spent the first 4.2 innings in the circle where he gave up six hits and three runs before being relieved by Tarrin Beachy who tossed 3.1 innings of scoreless relief to earn the win.

Beachy (4-1) gave up just one hit while striking out four of the 11 batters he faced. Caleb Landrum wrapped things up by retiring the side in order in the top of the ninth to spur the dog pile celebration at the mound.

As the regular season champs, Huntington (33-11) received an automatic bid to the 2017 NAIA National Tournament while the Knights (29-21) earned the league’s second automatic bid as the tournament runner-ups. Both teams will find out tomorrow afternoon where they will be playing the opening round slated for May 15-17.

It was more like a football score than a baseball score for the top-seeded Forester baseball team as they cruised to a 21-1 win over 7th-seeded Goshen College Tuesday afternoon in semifinal action of the Crossroads League Tournament. The win sends HU to the finals of the tourney slated for tomorrow at noon at Taylor University’s Winterholter Field.

The win is Huntington’s largest margin of victory this season. The Foresters hammered out 18 hits while drawing a season-high 13 walks. Shea Beauchamp paced Huntington’s potent offense with a pair of dingers to bring his homerun total to 14 on the year. He collected five RBI in his two big swings in addition to scoring four times and posting a third hit, a single up the middle in the fifth.

The Foresters spent the first four frames building a 3-0 lead but it was the fifth that proved pivotal in the blowout. HU sent 15 batters to the plate where they sifted through four Goshen pitchers on the way to pounding out eight hits for 11 runs. Four different Foresters registered an RBI-base poke in the inning with Andy Roser posting a pair of run-scoring hits that accounted for three runs.

It was all over after that as HU went on to log seven more runs before the Maple Leafs finally scored with two outs in the ninth.

DJ Moore effectively shut down Goshen’s offense during his six innings on the mound. He worked his way out a pinch in the first and then again in the third to leave five Maple Leafs runners stranded. It set the tone as the he gave up just one hit after that to post some impressive numbers. He scattered three hits on the day and issued three base on balls while striking out six for the win. The sophomore hurler currently leads the league in wins with eight.

Dalton Combs finished with four hits, two of which were doubles, and a walk and scored twice while driving in two runs. Jamar Weaver added three hits and scored twice. Tyler Zimske posted a hit and racked up three RBI. When all was said and done, ten different Foresters registered at least one hit and nine different Foresters logged at least one RBI.

The Foresters’ record stands at 32-11.

The top-seeded Huntington baseball team sent 4th-seeded Mount Vernon Nazarene University into the loser’s bracket of the Crossroads League Tournament Monday afternoon at Forest Glen with a 6-5 win over the Cougars. The Foresters now advance to the semifinals where they will face 7th-seeded Goshen College tomorrow at noon at Taylor University’s Gudakunst Field.

Today’s win wasn’t without dramatics as the Foresters had to come from behind to prevent the upset. After taking a 3-1 lead in the first that stood for the next three frames, HU watched their lead slowly slip away as the Cougars tied it up in the fifth and then picked up a run in the seventh and again in the eighth to enjoy a 5-3 lead.

But Coach Frame’s determined crew found a way to play spoiler to the upset-minded Cougars. After managing just two hits in their previous six at bats, Huntington pieced together a rally in the bottom of the eighth to plate three runs and climb back on top.

After two hit batters sandwiched a walk to load the bases with no outs, Will Coursen-Carr delivered a two-run single through the hole at short to knot things up at 5-5. With runners on the corners, Mount Vernon worked a double play at first and second but not before Kyle Selvey, pinching running for Andy Roser who was one of the hit batters, scored what proved to be the game-winner.

Tarrin Beachy slammed the door shut on any sort of last ditch effort by the Cougars as it was three up, three down for MVNU in the top of the ninth. Beachy, who relieved starting pitcher Tanner Wyse in the seventh, tossed the final three frames and gave up two hits, a run and two walks while striking out two for his third win of the year.

Just like the eighth, the Foresters had a little help from the Cougar pitching staff to score their first three runs. After Dalton Combs sent one long for the eighth time this season, Adam Roser drew a base on balls and came around to score on Dylan Henricks’ double to the fence in right-center. Mike Crowley wore one for the team, Andy Roser loaded the bases with a single into left and then Coursen-Carr drew HU’s second walk of the frame to plate run #3 for the early 3-1 tilt.

HU managed just six hits to Mount Vernon’s 12. Combs finished with a pair of hits including his dinger in the first while Coursen-Carr posted three RBI.

The Foresters are now 31-11 on the year.
