Baseball Falls at Richard Stockton

GALLOWAY, N.J. – Wesley College's baseball team dropped a 12-5 decision at Stockton University on Tuesday afternoon, falling to 3-10 on the season.  The Ospreys improve to 7-4 overall.

Stockton scored 11 runs in the first three innings off starting pitcher Alex Marrs (0-2) before giving way to Sam Meck, who held the Ospreys scoreless in all three of his innings while allowing just two hits.

The Wolverines chipped away at the lead, scoring a run in the fifth and two more in the sixth.  Mike Calvarese led off the fifth with a single and advanced to second on a Joe Hummel groundout.  Eric Speidel then drove in Calvarese with a single to left field to get Wesley on the board.

Hummel then delivered in the sixth with a bases-loaded, two-run single to right center, scoring both Matt Domian and KeAndre Jones

Stockton got one of those runs back off Rob Mills, who pitched the last two innings, in the seventh, but the Navy & White continued to fight.  In the Wolverines final at bat, Cory Smith led off the frame with a walk and advancing 90 feet as Domian reached on an error.  Jones made the Ospreys pay with a double to the gap in left center, scoring Smith from second.  Domian later scored on another error before Stockton retired the side to earn the win.

Wesley tallied ten hits on the day with Jones collecting a career-high three base knocks.  Hummel and Calvarese also had two hits apiece while Hummel also walked twice.

Capital Athletic Conference rival Penn State Harrisburg visits Wesley on Wednesday, March 25 for a 3:30 pm start.
