SDSU baseball walks off Oral Roberts
South Dakota State broke a four-game losing streak in a 4-3 win over Oral Roberts Friday afternoon at Erv Huether Field.
After inclement weather in the Brookings area delayed the game one hour and 45 minutes, Oral Roberts jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the third inning on a bases-clearing double.
The Jacks evened the score on one swing as Landon Badger's sixth home run of the season, a three-run shot to center field, tied the game at 3-all.
Rapid City native Cody Carlson got a no decision on the mound as he gave up 10 hits, no earned runs, four walks and struck out three in seven innings.
South Dakota State and Oral Roberts conclude the regular season Saturday. First pitch is scheduled for noon (MDT) at Erv Huether Field. The Jacks need a win or a Western Illinois loss to clinch a spot into the Summit League Baseball Championship. If both SDSU and Western Illinois lose Saturday, the Jackrabbits will advance to the conference tournament.
