Demons Take Second Straight From SFA
March 29, 2008
NACOGDOCHES, Texas - The Northwestern State Demons took an early lead over SFA and starter Heath Henningan made it stand up as the SFA baseball team fell to Northwestern State 6-2 at Jaycees Field on Saturday.
SFA (11-13, 1-7) did not have an extra-base hit off of Hennigan, who went 6.2 innings with eight strikeouts and no walks for the Demons (15-10, 7-1) to pick up his second win of the year.
Lance Luetge gave up a run in each of the first three innings before SFA cracked the scoreboard in the third. Down 3-0, SFA got a leadoff single from Matt Whatley and two batters moved to second base when Kai Kirby walked. Jeff Brewer then got his second hit of the game - a single through the left side - that got under the glove of Demons' left fielder Jordan Nipp and allowed both Whatley and Kirby to come around to score to cut the lead to 3-2.
However, that is as close as SFA would get as Northwestern State got a pair of unearned runs off of Luetge in the fifth inning to push the lead back to three.
The `Jacks and Demons finish up the series at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday with Erich Lehmann scheduled to duel against Demons' righty Clayton Cooper.
The game can be heard live on KSFA 860AM.
