Western Michigan Christian’s 19-game losing streak at the hands of the North Muskegon Norsemen ended on Monday night at Warrior Field.

Two unearned runs for WMC broke a 4-all tie and gave the Warriors a 6-4 victory in a nonleague baseball game.

North Muskegon grabbed a 2-0 lead in the first inning, but WMC came back to score three in the bottom of the second with the benefit of just one hit.

The game was tied at 4-all in the sixth, but WMC scored two unearned runs to complete the game’s scoring.

Warrior pitcher Austin Sandin allowed seven hits and struck out one. Logan Waller had a double and a single and knocked in two runs while fellow sophomore Eric Bourdo had two singles. Sandin and Henry DeKam had a single and an RBI each.

“We played extremely well defensively and a key play was Matt Vanderploeg throwing out a runner trying to advance to third,” WMC coach Darin Waller said. “It’s those kind of heads up plays that help you win ball games. It was a evenly matched game and well played by both teams.  “It was a big win for us and we give God all the glory.”
