SHAWNEE, Okla. — For Kansas colleges to play baseball games this early in the season, sometimes they have to travel to play teams that are quite frankly out of their league.

McPherson College played four games this weekend at No. 4-ranked Oklahoma Baptist and, predictably, went 0-4 against the national championship contender.

Mac is now 2-6 on the year while Oklahoma Baptist is 9-0. A summary:

• OBU 17, Mac 1 — The Bulldogs actually hung tough behind the pitching of Inman High grad Treyton DeVore, before OBU put together back-to-back seven-run innings in the fifth and sixth. Evan Willow drove in John Feaster with the Mac run.

• OBU 8, Mac 2 — OBU scored eight runs in the first three innings before being held scoreless over the final four. Eight different Bulldogs had a hit. Loren Farley took the loss.

• OBU 19, Mac 3 — The Bulldogs were socked by 10 runs in the first two innings. Matt Bryan crashed a three-run homer to account for Mac’s scoring. Ethan Downing took one for the team by going route.

• OBU 6, Mac 0 — Bulldog pitcher Nathan Crowe gave Mac a chance by throwing four shutout innings before giving up a run in the fifth and five in the sixth. Three Bulldogs had one hit.
