MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Miles broke out the big sticks again Saturday as it won both games of a doubleheader against rival Tuskegee at Paterson Field. The Golden Bears (22-18, 15-5 SIAC) took the opener 14-10 and earned an 11-4 win in the nightcap to finish a four-game weekend sweep of the Golden Tigers (11-25, 8-12). Peyton Logan had five hits, including a home run, and seven runs batted in over the two games while Jacob Schuster reached double-digit strikeouts for the third time this season.

GAME 1 – Miles 14, Tuskegee 10 

The Golden Bears jumped out to a big lead before slowing a Golden Tigers rebellion in the seventh. Logan’s RBI double in the first got Miles on the board but it was a big eight-run third inning that broke the game open. Ryne Benson and Alex Bentley each drove in two runs as Tuskegee had trouble catching the ball. A gusting wind made it tough on the outfielders as several catchable balls blew away from the defenders and Miles made them pay.

Logan’s three-run homer in the fifth, his second of the season, made the score 14-1 and Miles was set to cruise to another win. But Tuskegee started to chip away against Schuster (7-2), who gave up four runs in six innings while striking out 10. In the seventh, the Golden Tigers really went to work against reliever Tyler Hastings, who surrendered six runs while getting just one out. Benson would come in to retire the final two hitters to hear his first save of the season.

Dalton Roberts also had a big game at the plate with two hits and three RBI.

GAME 2 –  Miles 11, Tuskegee 4 

The Golden Tigers scored three times in the second against starter Tanner Stinnett to take their first lead of the series. But a RBI single by Logan and sacrifice flies by Brandon Conner and Destin Davidson gave Miles a 4-3 lead. The Golden Bears would add five more in the fifth, highlighted by a two-run single by Logan, to extend the lead to 10-3.

Stinnett (2-3) would settle down and pitch six innings, allowing five hits and two earned runs while striking out six to earn the win. Roberts added three more hits and scored three times while Bentley and Conner each had two hits for the Golden Bears.
