The Cornerstone University baseball team split a conference double header today with Aquinas winning game one 7-2 and dropping game two 5-4. It was Cornerstone's first Wolverine Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) games of the 2014 season.
Junior Jon Knapp pitched a tremendous game to start the day throwing eight strong innings. Knapp (3-0) did not allow an earned run and scattered seven hits on the way to his third victory of the season.
Sophomore Travis Gordon led the offense with two doubles and three RBI. Junior Sonny Mastromatteo, sophomore Zach Bohl, and freshman Johnny Abbadusky each added two hits in game one. Senior catcher Zach Harbison reached base three times as well.
Sophomore Ryan Harris started game two on the mound for Cornerstone and suffered the loss as he struggled with his command in the third inning which led to three runs on only one hit. Harris battled his way through 4.2 innings and allowed four earned runs on five hits and three walks. Sophomore Brandon Willard finished the game without allowing a run.
Mastromatteo and Bohl continued their hot days with two hits each in game two as well. Junior Tom Enslen also added two hits and an RBI. Junior Dillon Reust was 1-4 with a double, two runs, and an RBI.
Cornerstone's record moves to 11-7 overall and 1-1 in the WHAC. Aquinas is now 8-7 overall and 1-1 in WHAC play. Cornerstone will play again on Friday with a double header at home against Sienna Heights.
