NKU PLAYS HOST TO INDIANAPOLIS - April 21, 2006
Norse seek to reach 30-win plateau for fifth time in last six years
 

Steve Thomas

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. - The Northern Kentucky University baseball team will wrap up its home season
this weekend with a four-game series against Indianapolis at Champion Window Field in Florence, Ky.

The Norse will host noon doubleheaders Saturday and Sunday. NKU is 29-14-1 overall, and the Norse lead the Great Lakes Valley Conference with a 27-8-1 record.

NKU is looking to reach the 30-win plateau for the fifth time in the last six years.

Indianapolis is 25-15 overall, 22-15 in the GLVC. The Greyhounds are in fifth place in the GLVC.

Prior to Sunday’s opener against Indianapolis, NKU will recognize its six seniors - Conor McGeehan, Steve Thomas, Paul David Patterson, Joe Kendall, Matt Jones and Chris Wilson - during Senior Day festivities.

NKU is ranked No. 2 in the latest NCAA II North Central Region poll. Grand Valley State, which swept a doubleheader from NKU last week, is No. 1 in the poll. The top six teams in each region advance to the NCAA Division II Tournament May 18-21.

Thomas, NKU’s senior closer, notched his seventh save of the season on Wednesday by pitching the final two innings against Kentucky Wesleyan. Thomas’ school-record streak of consecutive scoreless innings pitched ended at 28 when Kentucky Wesleyan pushed across a run in the bottom of the seventh.

The senior from Elder High School in Cincinnati had not allowed a run this season until Wednesday.
