IWU baseball blasts Bethel


Caleb Eder hit three home runs on Friday to lead a potent Indiana Wesleyan University baseball power display in a 15-5 win over Bethel (Ind.) in a game that was called after seven innings. The Wildcats pounded seven home runs and 10 extra base hits on a blustery day at Wildcat Field.

The three home runs by Eder is a new Wildcat record for a single game. He now has 12 home runs and is just six shy of the IWU single-season record set by Brandon Shaffer in 2016.  Eder already has a program-best 33 for his career.

Kyle Hall pitched a complete game to improve to 4-4 this season. He allowed just two earned runs, scattered seven hits and two walks while striking out six Pilots.

Indiana Wesleyan and Bethel wrap up the weekend series on Saturday at 1 p.m. The doubleheader will be played at Wildcat Field.
