The Cornerstone University baseball team got swept in a Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) double header by the University of Northwestern Ohio in Lima, Ohio today.
Cornerstone lost both games in lopsided fashion by scores of 12-2 and 9-0 in a day where the Golden Eagle pitchers struggled in every way.
Kyle Marburger started game one on the mound for Cornerstone and was lifted in the fourth inning after giving up 10 runs, nine earned, on 11 hits. Marburger was tagged with the loss. Brandon Willard pitched three innings in relief and gave up two runs on six hits.
The Golden Eagle offense had nine hits but only two runs in the seven inning game. Dillon Reust, Sonny Mastromatteo, and Tom Enslen each had two hits in the loss. Reust and Mastromatteo scored the two runs for Cornerstone.
Game two was more of the same as Cornerstone starter Ryan Harris was unable to make it out of the third inning. Harris received the loss and was charged with six runs, three earned, in 2.2 innings and allowed five hits and five walks. Lefty Ben Sheckler allowed two runs in two innings and Paul Freswick pitched 1.1 innings of shutout ball.
The offense was held in check throughout game two and managed just three hits in the shutout win for UNOH. Reust and Mastromatteo stayed hot by each adding a hit in the second game.
Cornerstone is scheduled to play another double header tomorrow beginning at 1:00 in Lima, Ohio against UNOH. The Golden Eagles will attempt to improve upon their 13-10 overall record and 3-4 conference record.
