Hanna Slugs 3 Homers as Eagles Sweep


OMAHA, Neb. - The Kirkwood baseball team went the extra mile on Sunday to sweep a conference doubleheader from DMACC.

Actually, the Eagles went an extra 170 miles.

Kirkwood was supposed to play the doubleheader on DMACC's campus in Boone, but the games were moved to Millard North High School in Omaha, Neb., due to unfavorable field conditions in Boone.

The 12th-ranked Eagles took the switch in stride and swept the Bears, 10-8 and 5-1, in the ICCAC conference opener for both teams with the temperature in the mid-30's.

Ellison Hanna socked three home runs in the doubleheader for Kirkwood, which raised its records to 18-3 overall and 2-0 in the conference with its ninth straight victory.

Hanna belted two homers and drove in four runs in the 10-8 triumph in the first game. Izaya Fullard was 2-for-2 and drove in two runs and Kal Youngquist hit a solo homer.

Cameron Cowan (2-0) picked up the victory with three innings in relief.

Hanna went 2-for-3 with a double, home run and two RBIs in the 5-1 victory in the second game. Taylor Jackson was 2-for-4 and scored twice. Fullard had two more RBIs.

Hunter Lee (3-0) pitched seven strong innings for the victory. He allowed only three hits with eight strikeouts and two walks. Will Rodruck and Kaden Wadle pitched one inning in relief.

Kirkwood and DMACC (9-10, 0-2) are scheduled for another doubleheader on Monday, this time in Boone.
