HAMMOND, La. (Sunday, February 27, 2005) - Fueled by three-run home runs from Frank Montiel and Jordan Payne, the Redhawks offense bruised Southeastern Louisiana for 14 runs on 16 hits as they won the third and final game of the weekend series against Southeastern Louisiana 14-7 in Hammond.

Southeast Missouri (2-4) began their offensive explosion with the first at bat of the game when third baseman Jordan Payne led the game off with a single to left field. The bases quickly loaded when Eric Horstman walked and Ernie Bracamonte reached first base on an infield single. After Frank Montiel lined out to third, Freddy Lopez drove in two runs on a single through the right side. Brent Lawson then extended the Redhawk lead to 3 runs with a sacrifice fly to right that allowed Bracamonte to cross the plate for the first of his three runs scored on the day.

Chris Gibson singled through the right side, and then James Clayton drilled a double down the right field line that scored Lopez and ended the game for Southeastern Louisiana (5-5) starting pitcher Chad Catalano after only two-thirds of an inning of work.

The Southeastern Louisiana Lions were able to answer in the bottom half of the inning with one run on freshman shortstop Steve Clevenger's solo home run off of Redhawks starting pitcher Ryan Forsyth. Both teams were held scoreless in the second, but the Redhawks tacked on another run in the top of the third. After the Lions answered with two runs in the bottom half of the inning, Southeast Missouri's offense put the game away in the fourth inning.

After free passes were given out to Payne and Horstman, Frank Montiel drove in three of his five RBIs on the day when he turned on the first pitch from pitcher Chad Pendarvis and blasted it over the left field fence. Montiel added RBI doubles in the fifth and eighth innings. Southeast rallied with two outs in the sixth when Clayton hit his second double and Brady Noll reached on a fielding error by the third baseman. Jordan Payne then belted a three-run homer of his own to extend the Redhawk lead to 12-5.

Led by Clevenger, who drove in three runs and scored twice in a 2-for-4 affair, Southeastern Louisiana managed to score two runs again in both the fifth and ninth innings. However, the Redhawks offensive onslaught was too much to overcome, and Redhawks pitchers scattered hits and only gave up one walk in the contest. Starter Ryan Forsyth (1-1) worked 5 innings, and relievers Josh Parham, Andrew Johnson, and Brad Smith closed out the last four innings from the bullpen while giving up only three hi
