HAYS — A couple of former McPherson Bullpups powered Fort Hays State’s baseball team to a 9-8 victory over arch-rival Washburn on Wednesday.

Cody Starkel hit two home runs and a single, good for two RBIs, and scored four runs in the victory. Starkel has started to see more action recently for the Tigers and has raised his average to .300.

On the mound, MHS grad Alex Ruxlow pitched six innings of four-hit, one-run baseball to pick up the win, his fourth of the year.
