Red Raiders Season Ends With Loss To Bacone

20th-ranked Northwestern had its record-breaking season come to an end with a 2-0 loss to Bacone College (Okla.) in an elimination game played at the NAIA Baseball Championship Opening Round in Shawnee, Okla. 

Northwestern ends the season with a 42-13 record, setting the record for wins in a single season. 

The Red Raiders totaled six hits, five singles and a double, against Bacone righthander Michael Kirkland, who improved his record to 4-2 on the year. Kirkland walked one and struck out five. It was the second time that Northwestern was shutout this season. 

Matt Piocos (10-3) suffered the loss, despite giving up just four hits and two earned runs in six innings. The senior walked three and struck out three in the final start of his career. Isaac Horigan was perfect in three innings of relief, striking out four. 

Davis Bloemendaal and Erik Widener led the NWC offense with two hits each. Bloemendaal had a double while both Mitch Peschon and Tony Schultz each hit a single.
