Appalachian State Baseball Drops Second Game of Series to Old Dominion

App State fell to Old Dominion, 13-1, Saturday at Smith Stadium, with the weekend series to wrap up on Sunday.

App State was held hitless at the plate until the fourth inning, when Xavier Moronta led off with a double. Luke Drumheller singled in the seventh to extend his hitting streak to nine straight games, while Hayden Cross drew a walk in four plate appearances, extending his on-base streak to 25 in a row. Dylan Rogers tallied the lone two-hit game for App State.

The Monarchs scored three runs in the second inning and four more in the third, highlighted by a three-run home run by Alex Bouche.

Eli Ellington took over in relief in the fourth inning, and threw 0.2 scoreless, picking up a strikeout. The Mountaineer bullpen finished the game strong, with Ryan Sleeper, Jeriah Henry, and Jordan Fisher combining to allow just two runs over the final 3.1 innings.

The finale of the three-game series is set for Sunday at 1 p.m.
