The Cornerstone University baseball team lost a Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) game to Madonna University today by a score of 8-5.
Cornerstone starter Brandon Willard suffered the loss after struggling with command. He pitched 3.1 innings in which he allowed six runs, all earned, on four hits and six walks. Both Kyle Marburger and Paul Freswick were effective in relief.
The Cornerstone offense went ahead 3-0 early and had the tying run at the plate in the bottom of the ninth but was unable to complete the comeback late. Zach Meyer was 2-3 with a run and an RBI. Johnny Abbadusky also went 2-3. Dillon Reust and Tom Enslen each added two hits.
The loss moves the Cornerstone overall record to 14-27 and 3-21 in the WHAC. Cornerstone will host Madonna again tomorrow for a doubleheader and senior day festivities beginning at 1:00.
