TOPEKA, Kan. – The Northwest Missouri State baseball team had to change locations for their double-header Tuesday but came up short as they fell to UNK 10-6 in game one and 5-4 in extra innings in game two.
Nebraska-Kearney added six runs in the first two innings of game one to go up on Northwest. The Bearcats came back to score one run in the bottom of the second and would not score again until the fifth inning.
Down 8-1 going into the fifth, Northwest put together a good inning to get back into the game. Ryan Abernathy, Tyler Durant and Brandon Huske had all the bases occupied when Cam Bedard singled to left field to drive in two runs.

Warren went seven strong innings giving up eight hits and three earned runs while striking out five. Warren was given the no-decision in his start.
UNK and the Bearcats traded runs in the third and fifth innings and remained deadlocked at 2-2 going into the bottom of the sixth.
