BROOKINGS, S.D. – A second inning Kendall Whitman (Huntington North H.S.) grand slam sent IPFW to a five-run advantage, one that they would not give up for the remainder of the game, as the Mastodons won their 26th game of the 2015 season – a new program wins mark – and into the third seed for the upcoming Summit League Tournament.
With the win, the Mastodons pass the teams from the 1998 and 1994 seasons that each had 25 wins, and the team’s berth into the Summit League Tournament is the second straight – both times as the No. 3 seed.
IPFW beat South Dakota State 7-2 on Thursday. The two play again on Friday.
