AUM Senators split doubleheader at Talladega College

TALLADEGA, Ala. ---- The Auburn University at Montgomery baseball team had its 12-game winning streak snapped on Tuesday, as it split a twin bill against Talladega College, winning the opener, 19-8, and falling in the nightcap, 8-2.

In the opener, AUM matched a season-high with 18 hits, marking the seventh consecutive game it posted double-figures in the hit column.

Junior Hunter Cross led the attack, finishing 4-for-4 with three runs scored and five RBIs, while finishing just a double short of the cycle. Fellow junior Colton Mathis added a season-high four hits, including a double and a triple, as well as three runs scored. Senior Matthew Ingram recorded three hits, three runs and three runs batted in.

On the mound, junior Chris Allen earned the victory for the Senators, tossing 4 2/3 innings of relief to improve to 1-0 on the season.

In game two, AUM struggled to get its offense going, as only juniors Brian Wheeler and Michael Dugan finished with multi-hits, while fellow junior Jorden Johnson picked up the lone RBI of the contest.

Junior Will Ruffin took the loss in the contest, falling to 2-1 on the year.

As a result of the split, the Senators now stand at 23-13 overall entering this weekend's Southern States Athletic Conference series against No. 12 Belhaven University. The opening game of the series will be held Friday at 6 p.m. at the AUM Baseball Complex.
