Tewes on crutches

Wichita State freshman pitcher Sam Tewes watched Thursday’s second game on crutches with a black brace on his right leg.

He suffered a dislocated kneecap in Thursday’s morning game while trying to field a bouncing ball in front of the mound.

“I reached for the ball across my body and my cleat stuck in the ground and I rolled over my kneecap,” he said.

With the bases loaded in the sixth inning, SIU’s Jake Hand bounced a ball past Tewes and over the mound. Tewes reached back across his body, twisting awkwardly, and fell to the turf. Trainers protected his leg in an air cast and he left the field in the bed of a cart, clapping to his teammates as the vehicle passed the WSU dugout.

“He twisted his knee pretty well,” WSU coach Todd Butler said. “He was in a lot of pain.”

The ground ball ended SIU’s best threat and kept the game tied 1-all. Second baseman Zair Koeiman ranged behind second base and threw Hand out in a close play.

Tewes held SIU to one hit over six innings, walking four and striking out three.

Off the glove

Both teams got a break from the umpires in the first inning.

The Shockers turned a double play, although replays showed first baseman Casey Gillaspie dropped the ball. After a conference, umpires upheld the call and Illinois State’s Paul DeJong went to the dugout with the second out.

In the bottom of the inning, Gillaspie walked with two outs. Chase Simpson lofted a ball down the right-field line and Jack Czeszewski, playing toward the gap, ran a long way to reach for it near the foul line. He grabbed it before his knee bumped the ball out of his glove.

First-base umpire Brett Bruington immediately ruled it foul, sending Gillaspie back to first after he rounded the bases. Replays showed Czeszewski caught it in fair territory before carrying it across the line. WSU coach Todd Butler argued his point to no avail. Simpson followed by singling to move Gillaspie to third.

“(Bruington) said it was eight inches foul,” Butler said. “I couldn’t tell, because he gloved it. It’s not like he’s going to change the call.”

Other games

Dallas Baptist 6, Bradley 5 — Third-seeded Dallas Baptist remained unbeaten by winning a game delayed by Wednesday’s threat of weather. Patriots closer Brandon Koch held seventh-seeded Bradley to one hit over 2 2/3 innings to preserve the one-run margin. Drew Turbin and Daniel Salters homered for Dallas Baptist.

Missouri State 7, Bradley 2 — Sixth-seeded Missouri State eliminated the Braves, striking for five runs in the seventh inning. Alex Jefferson singled and Dylan Becker doubled in the seventh, both driving in two runs. Bears reliever Jake Powers struck out eight in 3 2/3 hitless innings.

Worth noting

The tournament cost Gillaspie his chance to hit .400. He entered the week hitting .406 before a 2-for-14 slump dropped him to .389. He walked six times and didn’t drive in a run. He has 34 career home runs, 16th on WSU’s list.… Illinois State eliminated WSU with two wins in the tournament after the Shockers swept the Redbirds in the final series of the regular season.… WSU reliever Aaron LaBrie made his 91st appearance, tying Pat Cedeno (1986-89) for seventh on WSU’s career list.
