CHESTERTOWN, Md. – It was a pitcher's duel, but the Wesley College baseball team fell at Washington College, 2-1, on Wednesday afternoon at Athey Baseball Park. The Wolverines now stand at 1-6 on the year while the Shoremen move to 5-2 overall.
Wesley went hitless for the first six innings but got on the board in the seventh for a run. Trevor Mears led off the inning with a single and stole second prior to Matt Domian's bloop single. Connor Bowers then lined a shot to center field, which was caught, but deep enough to score Mears.
KeAndre Jones singled later in the inning to put a pair of runners on with only one out but the Wolverines were unable to capitalize.
Sam Meck had the best outing of his career on the mound but still took the loss, allowing just one earned run on two hits while striking out four. Brett McCulley then pitched the final two innings without allowing a run.
Both of Washington's run came in the fourth inning on a sacrifice fly and a passed ball.
Wesley returns to action on Thursday, March 19 when it hosts Misericordia in a 3:30 pm start.
