Spartan Offense Stifled, Seven-Game Win Streak Snapped in 5-1 Road Loss to B-W

BEREA, Ohio – The Case Western Reserve University baseball team saw its seven-game win streak snapped, 5-1, on Friday, April 8 while visiting local rival Baldwin-Wallace College at Heritage Field. With the setback, the Spartans drop to 21-11 on the season.

The Spartan offense, which had been averaging over 10 runs during the win streak, managed only one score during a game dominated by pitching. Jon Capadona twirled five innings of one run ball for B-W and was relieved by Bill Bostelman, who shutout the Spartans over the last four frames to preserve the win.

Case grabbed its lone run in the sixth inning when junior outfielder Sam Alexander (Alexandria, VA/T.C. Williams) scored on a double play ball. Senior Devin Dye (Canton, OH/Jackson) pitched 6.2 innings for the Spartans, allowing five runs and taking the loss to fall to 2-2 on the season. Freshman Ray Kelly (Rochester, NY/Aquinas Institute) hurled the final 1.1 frames, allowing just one hit and striking out one.

The Spartans will be back on the field Sunday, April 10 visiting Muskingum University. First pitch is scheduled for 1:00 p.m.
