PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. – A four-run sixth inning broke open what was a tie game and sent Western Michigan to a victory over the St. Bonaventure baseball team Tuesday morning at the Snowbird Classic, 8-3.
Western Michigan (2-8) led early, 3-0, after a run in the second and two in the third, but the Bonnies rallied in the middle innings.
Down a run in the fifth, the Bonnies would tie the game.
The tie would not last long, though.
In the sixth, Jesse Forestell ripped a two-out, three-run home run to break the tie. A fourth run would later come home following an RBI single from Drew Devine and the Broncos never relinquished control.
Kelder stayed red hot at the plate, enjoying his best day as a Bonnie with a 4-for-5 effort and is now 8-for-14 in the team's first three games.
Tyler Germanowski picked up his first start with the Bonnies, working five innings while allowing three runs on four hits. The redshirt freshman struck out six opposing batters.
After a day off, the Bonnies are back in action against Mount St. Mary's on Thursday.
