WILMINGTON – The Wilmington College baseball team couldn’t keep Baldwin Wallace University off the scoreboard in a pair of Ohio Athletic Conference contests Sunday at Tewksbury-Delaney Field on Sunday afternoon.

The Yellow Jackets won game one 14-4 in seven innings and took the nightcap 11-4. BW won both games Saturday in Berea, 3-2 in 10 innings and 11-7.

On Sunday in the opener, Tre Nixon took the loss for Wilmington. Of the four relief pitchers used, Lincoln Howard was the lone Quaker not to surrender a run, scattering one hit with a strikeout in one inning.

Three Quakers – Tyler Shaneyfelt, Owen Baumann and Luke Kleindl – had one hit each. Jesse Reliford had a bases loaded walk to plate a run for WC.

In the nightcap, Reliford took the loss for Wilmington, allowing six earned runs on 11 hits in four innings pitched.

Evan Kelsey went 2-for-4 with an RBI for the Quakers. Baumann drove in a run with a sacrifice fly while Shaneyfelt had an RBI single.

Wilmington (1-7, 0-4 OAC) will battle Marietta College in an OAC series this weekend.

On Saturday, Caleb Scott homered for WC to give Luke Chappie an early lead. Chappie went eight innings, scattering nine hits with five strikeouts.

In the Quaker ninth, Aaron Burns doubled. Joe Legin then pinch-ran for Burns and tied the game by scoring on a wild pitch. BW won the game an inning later when Vanderhaar delivered the big hit.

GlenAllen Anderson took the loss for the Quakers. Four Quakers – Scott, Kleindl, Burns and Austin Turner – had one hit each.

In Saturday’s second game, Scott again homered early, a two-run blast. Shaneyfelt had two hits, an RBI and two runs scored while Turner also drove in two runs.
