Southeastern head coach Zach Crabtree picked up his 100th victory with the Savage Storm after a Blake McQuain grand slam helped lift SE to a 7-2 win in game two of a Friday twinbill, offsetting a 13-8 loss in game one against Ouachita Baptist on Friday afternoon at Mike Metheny Field.
 
The split moves the Savage Storm to 27-14 overall on the season and 16-10 in Great American Conference play with the rubber match of the series slated for noon on Saturday.
 
Crabtree picks up his 100th win at SE and brings his career win total to 381 between Southeastern and his seven seasons at Murray State.
 
Reid Rice and Dylan Herd each collected two hits in the nightcap on Friday, while McQuain supplied the power with a grand slam to drive in a team-high four runs.
 
Herd would tack on a pair of RBI, while Rice drove in one.
 
Cole Canuteson tossed a complete game in what looked like a pitcher's duel until the sixth inning as he picked up his fifth victory after allowing two runs on five hits over seven innings with 10 strikeouts.
 
OBU took an early lead with a first inning homer, but the Storm answered with Rice doubling home Seth Morrow to knot the game at 1-1.
 
It would stay tied until the fourth inning when the Tigers used an RBI double to take a 2-1 lead.
 
Herd would answer in the bottom of the fifth with an RBI single up the middle to score Angel Ochoa and tie the game at 2-2.
 
Matt Miles and Rice would lead off the sixth inning with back-to-back singles, and after a Cameron French sac bunt, Hayden Evans would draw an intentional walk to load the bases.
 
With the table set, McQuain would connect on a line drive homer over the right field wall to take a 6-2 lead.
 
Herd would tack on a run three batters later with an RBI double to set the final score at 7-2.
 
In the series opener, the Storm offense was led by Miles who posted three hits, including a homer, while French added three hits as well.
 
Rice picked up a pair of hits, as did Ochoa who doubled in both of them.
 
Miles would drive in two runs in the game, while Rice, French, Damon Burroughs, McQuain, Ochoa, and Bryce McDermott each drove in a run.
 
The Storm pitching staff did not fare as well, with Connor Priest getting the start and the loss after tossing 2.2 innings and allowing four runs on five hits with four strikeouts.
 
Jacob Potter followed with an inning of work and was tagged for five runs on four hits with three K's.
 
Jordan Compton came on and allowed four runs on five hits over 3.2 innings and Coby Langford finished the contest without allowing a run over 1.2 hitless innings with one strikeout.
 
OBU put up four runs in the top of the third, but the Storm answered with a McDermott RBI single and a Miles two-run homer to close the gap to 4-3.
 
Unfortunately, that would not last long as the Tigers put up seven runs in the fourth to stretch the lead to 11-3.
 
French would add a run in the fifth, but OBU answered with one in the seventh to make the score 12-4.
 
In the seventh, Rice would drive in a run on a single, followed by an RBI single by Burroughs.
 
McQuain would tack on an RBI walk followed by Ochoa bringing home a run on a sac fly to close the gap to 12-8.
 
That was as close as the game would get as OBU added one more run in the eighth and set the final score at 13-8.
