YORK, Pa. – Jordan Lozzi pitched a one-hit shutout in the opener, as the Wesley College baseball team split a Capital Athletic Conference doubleheader against York (Pa.) at Jaquet Field on Saturday afternoon. The Wolverines (12-5, 3-2 CAC) took game one, 2-0, before falling 8-0 in the second game. York is now 7-8 on the year and 1-4 in league play.
A senior from Forest Hill, Md., Lozzi improved to 4-0 on the year while striking out five and facing just four batters over the minimum. The first and only hit he allowed was a two-out single in the bottom of the third as the Spartans never got a runner into scoring position on the day.
Wesley's runs came in the fifth and sixth inning despite generating just three hits in game one. Matt Robles scored the first run after Morgan Rupp's sacrifice fly to center field. Robles reached on an error to start the inning.
Freshman Trevor Mears drove in Corey Jefferson with a single through the left side in the sixth as Jefferson reached on a double to right center and advanced ninety feet on a ground out by Steve Perone. Jefferson had two of Wesley's three hits in the opener.
The Wolverines only collected two base hits in game two; with one each coming from Jon Carlson and Perone as York's Josh Miller went the distance. The Spartans scored two in the first and three each in the third and fourth innings.
Zach Stuart got the start on the mound and allowed four earned runs in 2.1 innings, before giving way to Shane Yost, who gave up three earned in 1.1 innings. Andrew Cooper allowed just one hit and struck out one over the final 2.1 frames.
The same two teams will clash tomorrow in the finale of a three-game series starting at 1 pm.
