UNK close homestand this weekend

Kearney, Neb. – Junior right fielder Pate Katechis belted a Grand Slam and sophomore first baseman Ty Roseberry hit two home runs as Nebraska-Kearney dismantled Northwest Missouri State, 17-1 (7 innings), Wednesday afternoon at Memorial Field.

This was the first of three midweek games with the Bearcats (12-12, 8-5) this year. The contest was pushed back a full day due to weather and field conditions.

UNK (14-10, 7-3) has now won eight in a row, the longest win streak in the program since the 2011 team won eight straight between April 21-30. That squad won a school-record 38 games and reached the NCAA Central Regional finals.

To improve to 9-2 on its 14-game home stand, the Lopers pounded out 18 hits including six home runs and two doubles. On the mound, junior righty Alex Achtermann (Denver, Colo.) improved to 2-1 by fanning six and allowing just one run in five innings.

For the third time this home stand, junior center fielder Brett Young (3 for 4, two runs & three RBI's) led off the bottom of the first with a homer. Up 3-1 in the third, UNK saw senior second baseman Scott Platt (2 for 3, three runs) hit a two-run homer, his fourth of the year, to left field.

An eight-run fourth featured six hits including a one-out Grand Slam by Katechis (1 for 3). That was his sixth long ball of the year and helped UNK finally get a base knock with the bases full. Coming into today, the Lopers were hitting .167 (7 for 42) with three runners on base.

Next, senior catcher Dallas Schramm (3 for 4, three runs & two RBI's) and Roseberry(Kearney H.S.) hit back-to-back solo shots in the fifth with Roseberry (2 for 4, three runs & three RBI's) adding a two-run homer to left in the sixth. He's now at .450 with nine dingers and 27 RBI's, all team-highs.

Finally, sophomore third baseman Calvin Rudolph (3 for 4, two runs & one RBI) and redshirt freshman Peter Carlson (2 for 4, one run & one RBI) had multi-hit efforts.

UNK host the Lindenwood Lions this weekend at Memorial. Games times are 3 p.m.on Friday and Saturday and noonon Sunday.

Lue taking leave from Cavaliers

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue is taking a leave of absence from the team to address health issues that have included chest pains and loss of sleep.

Lue said Monday in statement that tests have offered no conclusion about what the issue is and offered no timetable for his return. The coach said he feels he needs to step away "and focus on trying to establish a stronger and healthier foundation" from which to coach the rest of the season.

"While I have tried to work through it, the last thing I want is for it to affect the team. I am going to use this time to focus on a prescribed routine and medication, which has previously been difficult to start in the midst of a season," Lue said. "My goal is to come out of it a stronger and healthier version of myself so I can continue to lead this team to the championship we are all working towards."

The Cavaliers also didn't say who would lead the team in Lue's absence, though that responsibility could fall to associate head coach Larry Drew.

A stress-filled season for the Cavs has taken a toll on the 40-year-old Lue, who led them to the 2016 NBA championship after taking over for David Blatt midway through that season. They are just 40-29, third in the Eastern Conference, and have endured roster shake-ups, injuries and other distractions as they try to return to the NBA Finals.

Now they will play without their coach.
