Alex Gonzales tossed a career-high 13 strikeouts in eight scoreless innings to lead Oral Roberts to a 3-0 victory over the Northwestern State baseball team Thursday night in Southland Conference action.

Gonzales (8-5) struck out at least one Demon (15-39, 4-21 SLC) in every inning he pitched, including the second inning when he struck out the side in order for the ORU (22-29, 15-10 SLC) effort.

He only allowed three hits and one walk.

The Golden Eagles scored one run in three different innings.

The opening score came the first inning when leadoff hitter Kevin Cho hit a single up the middle and scored on a double to the left field wall one batter later from Matt Brandy.

ORU pushed it to 2-0 in the fifth inning on a single through the right side from Tyler Boss that scored Brandon Healy. Healy was a pinch-runner for Brantley who hurt his ankle on a slide into second base two batters earlier.

The final run was in the eighth inning when Nate Goro led off the inning with a single to right field and scored three batters later when Austen Colt singled to right center field.

Ashton Sivigliano (2-3) started for Northwestern State and took the loss on two innings pitched with one run on three hits.

Andrew Adams pitched three innings and allowed a run on four hits.  

A.J. Funk worked two scoreless innings with a walk and two strikeouts.  

Zach Krebs allowed the final run on two hits.

Brantley had two hits in three at-bats with a run batted in.  Cho was the only other Golden Eagle with a multiple-hit game with two knocks in four tries.

Will Watson was one-of-four, and Nick Purdy and Matt Burns were each one-for-three.
