By The Hays Daily News

TOPEKA -- The Fort Hays State University baseball team split its MIAA doubleheader against Washburn University on Thursday.

The Tigers fell 7-4 in Game 1, then exploded with an 18-14 win in the nightcap. That included Jay Sanders hitting for the cycle, the first Tiger to do it in nearly two seasons.

The split leaves the Tigers at 20-15 overall, and 16-14 in MIAA play. That leaves them eighth in the conference standings.

The Tigers are on the road this weekend with a doubleheader each on Saturday and Sunday at Northeastern State (Okla.) University in Tahlequah, Okla. Game time is 1p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Saturday.

In Thursday's Game 1 at Washburn, Fort Hays fell into a 7-0 hole, then attempted a rally with its four runs through the final three innings of the seven-inning contest.

Jesse Hart (3-2) got the start, and allowed seven runs (four earned) through 2.2 innings before Drew Martineau finished the game. Hart allowed eight hits with three strikeouts and one walk, but the Tigers had two errors in the second inning that helped lead to five runs.

The Tigers' first run came in the fifth on a bases loaded wild pitch, scored by Shane Wade.

Horace Johnson hit a two-run home run in the sixth, and Kelton Rule had a two-out RBI single in the seventh. Rule finished 2-for-4.

In the nightcap, the Tigers blasted out 19 hits, 10 for extra bases, while Washburn tallied 17 hits.

Michael Edlefson (3-1) took the win in five innings, with Nathan Briar pitching three innings.

Sanders had an RBI single in the third, a two-run home run in the fifth, a double in the sixth, and a three-run triple in the eighth. Nash Smith was the last Tiger to hit for the cycle on April 16, 2011, against Southwest Baptist (Mo.) University.

Rule also had a big game with two home runs and five RBIs. He also had a triple in the game. Six Tigers had multiple-hit games.

Washburn dropped to 7-24 and 7-23 in MIAA play.
