Daniel Farrar tossed six effective innings and Chad Mansmann drove in the go-ahead run to lead the Auburn Montgomery baseball team past Shawnee State 2-1 Sunday.
With the win, the Warhawks improved to 5-4 on the season, while the Bears fell to 2-5 overall.
“They say any win is a good win, but we are starting to get discouraged offensively,” head coach Q.V. Lowe said. “We have to get things right. Pretty soon our pitching is going to collapse if we can’t score a few runs for them. I am very pleased with the way our pitchers have responded the last few ball games. At the end of the day, I am proud of the team for gutting out a win, but we have to get better.”
On the afternoon, AUM recorded just three hits, one each by Mansmann, Branden Kelley and Josh Thompson.
Mansmann delivered the key hit of the game, a run-scoring double in the third inning, which scored Wes Hughes. Hughes led off the frame by working a walk and later stole second.
