CBB: Emporia St. Ends Augie's Season
RUSSELLVILLE, AR -

Augustana baseball season its season come to a close after a 3-0 loss to Emporia State in an elimination game on Saturday. The Vikings finished their season 41-16, while the Hornets moved on and improved their record to 42-18 in 2014.
Tyson Gau (6-4) took the loss for Augustana, despite putting on an incredible performance on the mound Saturday. Gau went eight innings, giving up just three runs, two earned, on three hits. The Alexandria, S.D. native had a scoreless game going entering the ninth inning before a series of unfortunate events unfolded for the Vikings that allowed ESU to get on the scoreboard.
Kye Winter gave the Vikings a good day at the plate, going 2 for 2 with two walks.
Jack Goihl was the other Viking who had a two-hit day in the game.
Neither team got it going early at the plate, with the two teams combining for four hits in the first three innings of play. Emporia State's Travis Hendry struck out the side in the bottom of the first. Gau responded with a 1-2-3 inning of his own in the top of the second inning that included two strikeouts.
Gau kept his strong day going on the hill with another 1-2-3 inning in the top of the fifth. The Alexandria, S.D. native got Zach Stucky to ground out to short for his fourth straight batter retired, bringing an end to the inning.
The Vikings had a scoring opportunity in the bottom of the fifth that they couldn't capitalize on. With two outs and runners on second and third base, Duxbury went down looking on strikes to end the inning for Augustana.
The Hornets finally broke open a scoreless game in the top of the ninth after a balk was called on the Vikings to allow the Justin Harris to score from third base to make it 1-0 ESU. Emporia State added two more runs to push their lead to 3-0.
The Vikings got some life with a one-out single to left field by Goihl. Winter would immediately walk to put runners on first and second.  Brendan Koistinen struck out for the second out, and Jacob James blooper to short was caught for the final out to give the Hornets the 3-0 win and bring the Augustana season to a close.
