CWR sweeps Guilford during Sunday on the diamond, but well-known Will Cornelius(NWG) connects for Quakers and Wooden whacks two more
GREENSBORO, N.C. â€“ Case Western Reserve received two strong pitching
performances from young southpaws to sweep Guilford College in a
nonconference baseball doubleheader Sunday at McBane Field. The Spartans won
the opener, 9-5, and took game two, 11-7.
Rookie Jarrett Gish (1-0) fanned four and yielded one earned run over five
innings in the Spartans (2-2) opening-game win. Case Western took advantage
of Guilford starter Sammy Stuartâ€™s (0-2) four walks and one hit batsman to
open a 6-1 lead after three innings. Mike Pecoraro was three-for-three with
two doubles and three RBIs. Sam Alexander also had three hits and three RBIs
for the Spartans.
Guilfordâ€™s Kyle Wooden belted his third home run in as many games, a
three-run shot in the sixth inning.
Wooden belted a two-run homer in the bottom of the first inning of the
nightcap off of sophomore lefty A.J. Boshinski, but the Spartans scored in
all seven innings for an 11-7 victory in the nightcap. Rookie southpaw A.J.
Hora replaced Boshinski in the fifth inning and worked out of a couple
late-inning jams for his first college save. Alexander had three more hits
and three more RBIs and Pecoraro added two hits.
Will Cornelius (Greensboro, N.C./Northwest Guilford) hit a three-run homer
in the fifth inning to make it an 8-6 contest. Cornelius, Drew Ward and
Derek Hardison all had two hits for the Quakers (5-3).
