McPherson College baseball opened the 2013 season Friday, with the Bulldogs splitting a doubleheader with Southern Nazarene University.
The Crimson Storm blasted out to a 5-0 lead after the first inning, thanks in part to a Chance San Miguel grand slam.
Mac College had a run in the third, but SNU responded with a four-run fifth.
The Bulldogs got the rally caps going in the seventh as Zach Wilson got a three-run homerun, but it wasn’t enough as McPherson fell 9-5.
Scott Hughes took the loss.
The Bulldogs scored first in game two, but the Crimson Storm responded with a three-run bottom of the second to take a 3-1 lead.
McPherson would then score two in each of the fifth and eighth innings, while holding Southern Nazarene scoreless after the second to claim the 5-3 win.
Taylor Werts took the win for McPherson (1-1).
