WILMINGTON – Miami University-Hamilton used three big middle innings to defeat the Wilmington College baseball team 13-4 in the Fightin’ Quakers’ final non-conference contest of the season Wednesday at Tewksbury-Delaney Field.
Similar to his last outing, Wilmington starter Michael Weisenberger allowed just one hit and no runs through three innings, but the fourth inning proved much different. The sophomore allowed the first seven baserunners, including five via base hits, to reach. Thomas Hueber relieved him with two runners on and a 5-0 deficit. The Harriers scored two more runs on Hueber to close out a seven-running inning and tack on four more runs on two home runs in the top of the fifth.
Trailing 11-0, the Quakers plated three runs on three hits including an RBI-single from Nick Silvis along with a MUH error. After the Terriors twice in the sixth but WC rebounded when Antonio Miller singled home Marko Salajcik in the bottom of the inning. With the score 13-4 and the bases loaded, a flyout ended the threat.
Weisenberger dipped to 0-4 with the loss allowing six earned runs in 3.1 innings pitched. Cameron Harbert, Matt Oney and Adam Doerger all pitched effectively in relief for Wilmington.
Offensively, Miller finished 3-for-5 with two RBIs and two stolen bases. Mason Walker, who also stole a base, had a multi-hit game as well.
