Missouri S&T’s baseball team returned to the field in Arkansas Friday and ran into a hot Henderson State team, with the end result being a double-header sweep by the Reddies by scores of 5-2 and 4-0.

The Reddies, who extended their winning streak to eight games with the sweep, jumped on top in the opener in the fourth inning by scoring twice off S&T starter Andrew Page.

S&T knotted the score in the fifth, as Zac Helton singled with one out and Hunter Scheib drew a two-out walk to precede a two-run double off the bat of Brandon Cogan.

However, Henderson regained the lead in the bottom half of the sixth. A leadoff walk and a hit batter got the rally started, then a bases-loaded single with one out broke the tie. Two more runs scored later in the inning on a fielder's choice, the latter run scoring on an throwing error as the Miners were trying to turn an inning-ending double play.

The Miners were held to five hits in the opener, while Page took the loss on the mound as he pitched into the sixth inning.
