Oral Roberts strengthened its hold on first place in the Summit League with a doubleheader sweep of UNO on Friday night at Anderson Field.

The Golden Eagles won the opener 12-3 and the nightcap 2-1.

In the scheduled seven-inning nightcap, the Mavericks had one baserunner through the first six innings against starter Isaac Coffey (8-1)  Keil Krumwiede singled in the second but was erased on a double play.

But in the bottom of the seventh, Harrison Denk led off with an infield single and went to second on a throwing error. An out later, Mike Boeve lined a single to center to score Denk to tie the game.

ORU regained the lead an inning later though. Jordan Wiley was hit by a Tanner Howe pitch with the bases loaded and two outs, bringing home the go-ahead run.

UNO would threaten in the bottom of the eighth, with two on and one out. Denk then hit a line drive down the first-base line, but it was caught and turned into a game-ending double play.

In the opener, Oral Roberts (25-19, 16-5 Summit) scored in five of the first six innings to pull away. Jake McMurray hit a two-run homer and later added a two-run single.

Krumwiede drove in all three runs for UNO (19-21, 11-10) with a two-run double in the third and a solo homer in the seventh.

The teams continue their series at 6 p.m. Saturday.
