Nigut helps Eagles split with No. 16 SCC

PDF

Will Nigut allowed only one earned run in six innings Friday to help  the Kirkwood Eagles trim 16th-ranked Southeastern, 5-4, in the second  game of their ICCAC doubleheader at Kirkwood.

Southeastern claimed the first game, 8-2.

The split left Kirkwood at 30-17 overall and 14-12 in the league.  Southeastern is 37-16 overall and 15-11 in the conference. Kirkwood  finishes the regular season with a twinbill at Southeastern Saturday  in West Burlington.

Nigut (3-1) was touched for four runs, but only one of those tallies  was earned due to a Kirkwood error. Jackson Bennett tossed three  scoreless innings in relief with five strikeouts for his fourth save.

Brett Givens was 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs for the Eagles.  Levi Usher was 2-for-5 with two RBIs and two stolen bases. Kirby Kerr  also had two hits.

Joel Vaske had two hits, including a solo home run, for Kirkwood in  the 8-2 loss in the opener.
