Eastern Kentucky and Miami (Ohio) stepped out of their respected conferences for a midweek showdown.

The game between was originally scheduled for Tuesday night but was pushed back to Wednesday night due to weather.

After an explosive weekend offensively for Eastern Kentucky (17-19, 7-8 OVC) it took awhile for the bats to come alive against the Redhawks (13-19, 5-7 MAC).

Miami would score the first three runs in the game. Gary Russo would start the scoring for Miami in the first with a double scoring teammate Dan Walsh.

Steve Sada would continue the Redhawks scoring in the second inning with a two run double to give the Redhawks a 3-0 lead.

Eastern Kentucky would chip away though in the third when a Redhawk error would give the Colonels their first run. The next batter, Ben Fisher, would single to drive in TJ Alas to pull the Colonels within one at 3-2.

Another Steve Sada double would score Chad Sedio to make it 4-2 in the fourth inning. A Matt Honchel single would score Sedio again pushing the Redhawk lead put to 5-2.

Dan Walsh added a RBI single in the ninth to give the Redhawks a 6-2 lead.

Luke Wurzelbacer would start the Colonels ninth off with a single. Two batters later Kyle Nowlin would also add an one out single, Then Bryan Soloman with two outs would hit a RBI double to bring the tying run to bat.  Colonels would not be able to get any other runs and Redhawks beat the Colonels 6-3.

Eastern Kentucky will return to action tomorrow against Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville at 6 p.m. in Richmond.
