WC baseball falls to Oberlin in Sunday twinbill


Oberlin College was dominant in all facets of the game in a doubleheader sweep of the Wilmington College baseball team Sunday as the Fightin’ Quakers fell 10-1 and 12-3 at Tewskbury-Delaney Field.

In game one, Wilmington managed two hits – one from Nick Silvis and one from Luke Kleindl – as the Quakers struggled to solve the Yeomen pitching staff.

Jarett Trautman took the first loss of his senior season allowing seven earned runs in three innings.

Despite only having two hits, the Quakers did draw seven walks including two from catcher Kasey Bottorff.

In game two, the Yeomen plated at least a run in five of the first six innings including a four-run sixth.

Matt Oney dipped to 0-3 with the loss as he allowed 11 hits and five earned runs in six innings pitched. Adam Doerger provided the best performance for the Wilmington pitching staff on the day, allowing just one hit in three innings pitched.

The Quakers had five hits in game two, including a 2-for-4 performance by Silvis with an RBI batting in the lead-off slot.

Kleindl had a run-scoring single in the fourth and Kyle Short added a sacrifice fly as WC led 2-1. The Muskies scored twice on WC errors in the fifth and then added a pair of two-out runs in the sixth to go up 5-2.

Gage Bley doubled home Antonio Miller and Silvis to make it 5-4 in the eighth.

Joey Hollback took the loss for the Quakers despite turning in a quality start by pitching six innings and allowing just one earned run.

In the second game, WC again took a 2-1 lead on a pair of sacrifice bunts, but Muskingum scored seven in the fourth to take the lead for good, 8-2.
