Minks hits 2nd grand slam in as many days as VU falls to Wabash Valley

Sophomore Chris Minks hit his second grand slam in as many days Monday as the Vincennes University Baseball Team fell, 20-11, to visiting Wabash Valley at Jerry Blemker Field.
Minks, who had two homers in the second game of the Trailblazers' Sunday doubleheader vs. St. Joseph, came to the plate Monday with the bases loaded again and clubbed the opposite field shot to give him 10 hits in his last 14 official plate appearances. The round-tripper also gave him 12 RBIs ove rthat same stretch.
Thanks to Minks' blast and freshman Grant Buckley's 3 2/3 innings of solid relief pitching, the Trailblazers were locked in a tight game with the Warriors through the first five innings Monday. But Wabash Valley erupted for nine runs over the final four innings to pull away for the win.
VU returns to the diamond today at Jerry Blemker Field for a 2 p.m. doubleheader vs. Sinclair Community College. The Trailblazers wrap up their longest homestand of the season on Wednesday when VU hosts Danville at 6 p.m.

The Vincennes University Athletic Department hosts Play4Kay and raises donations for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund annually. VU Women’s Basketball Coach and Athletic Director Harry Meeks has a special connection to the late Yow, who was the longtime coach at North Carolina State. He had the pleasure of meeting her while he was an assistant coach at Western Carolina University. This left a lasting impression on him and made this cause important to him and the Trailblazers.
