Box Score

Cape Girardeau, MO - The Indians needed a big win in today's game from starter Derek Herbig and got just that as they go on to beat Freed-Hardeman 12-4. Herbig, a junior transfer in his first year with the Tribe allowed the Lions just two runs on four hits in eight innings of work. If that is not enough, he came one strikeout shy of his game record 13, with 12 on the game.

Herbig, while brilliant on the mound, was not the center of attention. The Southeast bats stole the show as a hot Eric Horstman went 3-for-5 with two RBI. Ernie Bracamonte also had a big day going 2-for-3 with one RBI. Not to be outdone, junior center fielder Frankie Montiel had another great game at the plate going 2-for-4 with three RBI.

Southeast started the scoring in the first, when Montiel knocked in his first run, scoring Bracamonte from first on a one out double off Freed-Hardeman starter Ronnie Hughes (4-4). Southeast would not score again until the fifth inning, busting out for four runs. Montiel would record his second double and third RBI of the game in the inning.

The Freed-Hardeman Lions tried for eight innings to figure out Derek Herbig, but in the end just could not keep up as home plate umpire Bill Bonney called strikeout after strikeout. Herbig would leave the game after the Southeast eighth when the Indians would send five runs home, capped off by a pinch hit, two-run homerun by Eric Hoffman, his second of the year.

The Indians will continue conference play this weekend, hosting Samford this weekend in a three-game series. The first two will be played in a doubleheader on Friday. The first game is scheduled for a 1 p.m. start.
