CHESTERTOWN, Md. – The Wesley College baseball team dropped a 6-4 decision to the Washington Shoremen on Thursday to split the season series with their local rival.
After trailing early, the Wolverines took a 3-2 advantage in the top of the third inning. Chris Seibert knocked a single to right center field to score Trey Mears for Wesley's first run. A batter later, Mike Calvarese followed with a single to right-center to score Cody Dmiterchik. A double steal with Seibert stealing home would give the Wolverines the 3-2 lead.
Washington would overtake Wesley for good after tying the game in the fourth and then a Jay Felts three-run homer would give the Shoremen the 6-3 lead in the sixth.
Wesley tried to rally in the ninth, getting a run across on a Mears' sacrifice fly that would plate John Joines from third but Washington would hold on for the win.
Calverese paced the offense with a 3-for-4 day with a double and an RBI. Mears, Dmiterchik and Joines all notched two hits in the contest.
The Wolverines (11-7) will resume conference play on Saturday with a double-dip with the York Spartans at Wesley's Bob Reed Field. Game one of the series is scheduled for a noon first pitch.
