DOVER, Del. – Runs in the seventh and eighth innings propelled the Wesley College baseball team over the Washington College Shoremen on Tuesday.
Washington responded with three runs in the second and a run in the fourth to take the 4-2 lead. However, Wesley tallied three runs in the bottom of the fourth behind Cody Dmiterchik's bases-clearing double down the left field line.
Washington answered with a run in the fifth and three runs in the sixth to go into the seventh inning with an 8-5 lead.
In the bottom of the seventh, Trey Mears scored after stealing third base and coming around to score on a throwing error by the catcher to cut the Washington lead to 8-6.
Wesley then overtook Washington in the bottom of the eighth. With the bases loaded and one out, Aaron Briggs was allowed to score from third when the Mears hit a grounder to the third baseman and the third baseman tried to get Briggs out at home but the catcher never touched home plate. Following a walk to reload the bases, Chris Seibert smacked a three-run double to center field to allow Wesley to surge ahead of Washington, 10-8.
Washington did get a run back in the ninth but Connor Springsteen struck out the side looking to seal the 10-9 win for the Wolverines.
Seibert and Calverese each went 2-for-5 with a run scored. Seibert and Dmiterchik each tallied three-run doubles respectively. Mears scored three times from the leadoff spot.
Springsteen picked up his second win of the season in two innings of relief.
The Wolverines (10-6) will be back in action tomorrow at 3:30 p.m. when they travel to St. Mary's City to face the Seahawks in a Capital Athletic Conference contest.
