INDIANOLA, Iowa – Nick Stein hit a home run in each half of the doubleheader and Coe swept the Simpson baseball team, 5-3 and 10-5 on Saturday.
The wins helped the Kohawks (23-10, 17-5 Iowa Conference) take the four-game series, 3-1.
AJ Reuter drove in the winning run for Coe in the third on a double to left field.
Matt Pennings (3-4) gave up five runs – all earned – in five innings for Simpson while Drew Arends (7-0) remained undefeated, giving up four hits in the complete-game effort.
Stein's three-run homer in the third inning helped give Coe a 10-1 lead early in the nightcap.
Simpson chipped away at the lead with runs in the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh, but dug too deep of a hole to climb out of in the loss.
Stein finished 3-for-5 with four RBIs and Wade Morris (3-0) gave up six hits and three runs – two earned – in five innings.
