The quest to advance to this year's NAIA World Series came up short for Oklahoma Wesleyan University Eagles as Davenport, Michigan won the NAIA Regional Championship game Friday afternoon 11-4. The loss ends OKWU season with a 49-14 record.
It looked like the Eagles were going to win the game early as they led 4-0 going into the bottom of the fourth inning.

Davenport took the lead for good, scoring two runs in the sixth, two runs in the seventh, and three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning. Davenport held OKWU scoreless in the top of the ninth to advance to the NAIA World Series.
