EVANSVILLE — History was made at German American Bank Field at Charles H. Braun Stadium in Evansville Sunday when Purple Aces center fielder and Lincoln City native Kenton Crews hit the first cycle in school history in the Purple Aces’ 10-1 win over Butler.
Crews started his journey to a cycle by getting the hardest part done first: hitting a triple in the bottom of the first to plate two runs.
He doubled in the bottom of the third, slapped a two-run home run to left field in the bottom of the seventh and in the bottom of the eighth singled through the left side of the infield to make history.
The Heritage Hills alum drove in four runs with his cycle to help guide the Aces to a series win over the visiting Bulldogs.
Evansville is now 9-10 on the year and will return to action next weekend when they host Xavier (Cincinnati) for a four-game series.
