Savas (7-0), lasted eight innings for the third time this season, allowing no runs on three hits with eight strike outs. David Suarez worked a scoreless ninth to preserve the win.
Creighton starter Nick Musec (1-5), was chased from the game in a two-run Redbird fifth inning. He allowed three runs, all earned, on five hits with four walks and no strike outs over 4.1 innings.
Hinshaw’s RBI-triple in the third inning plated Stewart to give the Redbirds an early 1-0 lead. In the fifth, Hinshaw drew a bases-loaded walk and Zac Johnson added a run-scoring fielders choice to give the Redbirds 3-0 lead after five innings.
The first three Redbirds reached to open the sixth inning. A two-run single from Stewart broke the game open and was following by a run-scoring fielders choice by Hinshaw to cap the scoring.
The Redbirds have now won 19 of their last 21 games, improved to 17-4 at Duffy Bass Field and have won four-consecutive Missouri Valley Conference series’.
The three-game set concludes Sunday with a 1:00 p.m. first pitch versus the Bluejays. Admission and parking remain free at Duffy Bass Field.
