Junior Reggie Kock (Breda, Iowa/Ar-We-Va) gave the Beavers a much-needed complete-game effort on the hill, allowing just the two runs on five hits, while striking out five.
BVU got on the board in a convincing way with a five-run second inning. With runners at the corners and one out, sophomore Nick Schlecht's (Omaha, Neb./Skutt) RBI bunt single put the Beavers on the board before Ryan Scheetz (Omaha, Neb./Millard North), Joe Paletta (Omaha, Neb./Millard South) and Brock Yossi (Dallas Center, Iowa/Dallas Center-Grimes) all chalked up RBI singles. Dillon Plath's (Omaha, Neb./Burke) RBI ground out pushed the margin to 5-0.
Scheetz, who finished 3-for-6 with two RBI in the contest, extended the advantage to 6-0 in the fourth with his second RBI single in as many innings before a two-out error by the Norse in the fifth scored Jesse Munsterman (St. Peter, Minn./St. Peter) from third to make it 7-0.
Luther put together a threat in the bottom of the fifth, scoring a pair of runs with only one out before Kock picked up a big strikeout and a ground out to third to end the inning.
The Beavers took advantage of a key two-out throwing error by the Norse in the sixth, to score a pair of unearned runs before Yossi, who went 4-for-5, came through with his second RBI single of the contest.
Paletta continues his torrid hitting by going 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored. He's now hit safely in seven straight games, including six multiple hit contests. Foxx also added three hits for a Beaver offense which pounded out 16 overall.
BVU has now scored 21 runs on 30 hits over its last two contest.
With the win, the Beavers improve to 24-18 overall and become the first-ever fifth-seed to make its way into the championship game.
