Spencer Henson went 3-for-4 at the plate getting singles in each of his first three at-bats, including the eventual game winner in the second as he brought Noah Cummings home for a 1-0 advantage. Riley Keizor added a RBI single in the sixth plating Cal Hernandez and AJ Archambo hit a sacrifice fly to score Nick Roark and push the ORU lead to 3-0.


Fort Wayne recorded its first win of the 2018 season taking game one of a doubleheader at Alabama A&M by a 7-4 score.
