Yesterday the Bellwood baseball team traveled to Mo Valley and returned home with a 6-2 victory. They are  tied for first in the ICC with Mount Union with a 8-2 season record, and their overall record is 10-5.

The Blue Devils are now on a four game winning streak. Pitcher Travis Luensman took the win and only allowed 2 runs on 5 hits, he struck out 11 batters, and he pitched six innings.

Bellwood started off only scoring 1 in the 1st inning, and after that they turned up the heat. They went on to score 4 in the second inning and 1 in the third, which put them at a 5-0 lead.

Mo Valley finally scored two off of Luensman in the bottom of the sixth, before Alex Schmoke closed out the game.

Troy Walker went 1-for-2 and scored two runs, including a double.  Luensman also had a double, as did John Kost. Luensman went 3-4 with 2 RBI

The B-A boys hope to continue their winning streak Thursday against Juniata Valley.
