Eagles make easy work of St. John's at Midwest Regionals

La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -

Another offensive explosion for the UW-La Crosse baseball team carried them to another easy win Thursday.

Justin Anderson led the way this time with four hits and five runs batted in in a 10-0 win over St. John's in an NCAA Div. III Midwest Regional game at Copeland Park.

Anderson set the tone with a run-scoring single in the first inning as the Eagles led 5-0 after two innings.

He later added a two-run home run, his 11th of the season.

Taylor Kohlwey had a first inning run-scoring single, extending his WIAC record hitting streak to 47 straight games.

The Eagles had 15 hits total.

Troy Kenkel was the beneficiary of all the offense.

Kenkel tossed seven shutout innings while giving up just four hits and striking out eight.

"Obviously, our offense getting out to a good  start is a big help, but having fastball command. Moving the ball in and out, making them uncomfortable that always helps. When you have fastball command like that it makes all your other pitches that much better," said Kenkel.

"Execution in all three facets of the game, pitching, defense, and offense was all there in today's game. Kudos to the players for the effort they put in," said head coach Chris Schwarz.

The Eagles will play at 4:30 PM Friday at Copeland Park.
