TUCSON, Ariz. — The No. 25 Buena Vista University baseball team jumped on Lawrence University early and never let up in a 20-3 nonconference victory on Wednesday.

Lawrence (2-6) scored three times in the top of the first to take the lead, but the Beavers (11-1) regained the lead with four runs in the bottom half of the inning.

Buena Vista scored three times in both the second and third, added a single run in the fourth and ended the game with nine runs in the sixth.

Tanner Truesdell went 4-for-5 and drove in four runs for the Beavers, who collected 21 hits.

Sam Kossow went 2-for-3 to lead the Vikings, who were limited to six hits.

Tyson Valentine pitched 2.2 innings of relief to earn the victory. Atley Gay allowed 12 hits over four innings and took the loss for Lawrence.

The Vikings wrap up their spring break trip on Thursday with a pair of games against Lewis and Clark.
