While the Decorah area was getting another dose of blowing snow, 358 miles south Luther and Washington-St. Louis played the first of three games this afternoon at CarShiled Field, O'Fallen, Mo.
Things did not go well in game one as the Bears defeated the Norse 7-0. Wash U scored one run in both the first and eighth frames and put two on the scoreboard in the fifth and score three runs in the seventh. Senior pitcher John Howard tossed a five hitter that included nine strikeouts.
Joey Cardamon was credited with the loss. Cardamon threw 6 1/3 innings, allowed six runs on four hits, walked five and struck out four.
The loss gives Luther an overall record of 3-2. Wash U improves to 3-2-1.
These two teams will play a twin bill (2x9) tomorrow starting at Noon.
