Wennerberg went 3-0 during last week's spring break games, allowing zero earned runs in 22.2 innings pitched, while striking out eight batters. During the Spartans' 3-2 win against Mount Saint Mary, Wennerberg pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing two runs (both unearned) on six hits and striking out five batters.

Case Western Reserve will return to Cleveland to host their home-opening doubleheader on Tuesday, March 21st against Kenyon College. The first pitch of the first game is slated for 3:00 p.m.
