Rio Grande Sports Information
    RIO GRANDE, Ohio - On the heels of one of the more notable wins in program history, the University of Rio Grande baseball team is hoping their new-found momentum can fuel a late-season run that could produce a post-season berth.
    The first chance to begin that run toward the Mid-South Conference tournament begins Friday afternoon when Lindsey Wilson College pays a visit to Bob Evans Field for the opening game of a three-game weekend set.
    First pitch is set for 2 p.m., with a doubleheader to close out the series on Saturday beginning at noon.
    Head coach Brad Warnimont's club posted a 2-0 win at NCAA Division I Ohio University on Wednesday night - the program's first win against a Division I opponent during the veteran head coach's tenure and, perhaps, the school's first-ever win against Division I foe.
    Unfortunately, full-season records in the Rio Grande Sports Information office go back only as far as 1997, so whether Wednesday's shutout of the Bobcats was, in fact, the school's first over an opponent from the ranks of the NCAA's top division remains unclear.
    What is clear, though, is that Wednesday's victory was the first non-loss against an NCAA Division I foe since March 1, 2000 when the then-Redmen, ironically, battled Ohio University to a 16-16 tie in Athens.

Junior Anthony Knittel allowed just two hits over 8-1/3 innings in Wednesday night's win at Ohio U.

    ATHENS, Ohio - After finding themselves on the short end of so many narrow losses this season, the University of Rio Grande finally found a way to emerge victorious in a close game.
    And against an NCAA Division I opponent, no less.
    Anthony Knittel and Mike Deitsch combined on a two-hit shutout and the RedStorm pushed across a pair of sixth inning runs en route to a 2-0 win over Ohio University, Wednesday night, at Bob Wren Stadium.
    Rio Grande improved to 18-25 with the victory, just its sixth of the year in 22 games decided by two runs or less.
    Ohio, a member of the Mid-American Conference, slipped to 5-28 with an 11th straight loss. The Bobcats also remained winless in 11 outings at home this season.

    RIO GRANDE, Ohio - Mother Nature's foul mood on Tuesday cost the University of Rio Grande baseball team a doubleheader, but it also bought the RedStorm a fill-in game against a neighboring NCAA Division I opponent.
    Rio's twinbill at Ohio Christian was cancelled as a result of Tuesday's rain and snow, but head coach Brad Warnimont managed to scramble and schedule a single game at Ohio University on Wednesday night.
    First pitch for the nine-inning contest is set for 6 p.m. at Bob Wren Field in Athens.
