Jarrell Tosses Six No-Hit Innings
CHESTERTOWN, Md. – Washington College junior pitcher Dan Jarrell (Alexandria, Va./West Potomac) tossed six no-hit innings to lead the Shoremen to a 2-1 victory over visiting Wesley on Wednesday afternoon in a non-conference baseball game at Athey Baseball Park. The Shoremen improve to 5-2 overall, while their Delmarva rival Wolverines fall to 1-6.
Jarrell, who improved to 2-0 win the win, in his six hitless innings walked one and did not strikeout a batter. Sophomore centerfielder/pitcher Logan Dubbé (Glenelg, Md./Glenelg) would pitch the final two innings of the game without giving up a run to notch his second save of the year. He struck out three Wesley hitters in his two innings of work.
The Shoremen scored both of their runs in the bottom half of the fourth inning to take a 2-0 lead. With one out, senior first baseman Dennis Thomas (Baltimore, Md./Archbishop Curley) scored on a sacrifice fly to right field off the bat of freshman catcher Wes Robertson (Cheshire, Conn./Cheshire) for the game's first run. With two outs, sophomore designated hitter Evan Hirschbaum (Massapequa, N.Y./Plainedge) came home on a passed ball for the frame's second run. The Shoremen had two of their four hits in the contest in the last of the fourth.
The Wolverines got onto the scoreboard in the top of the seventh with nobody out when Trevor Mears scored on a sac fly to center off the bat of Connor Bowers. Mears got the Wolverines' first hit of the game leading off the seventh on an infield hit to shortstop. All three of Wesley's hits in the game came in the top of the seventh.
In the top of the eighth Wesley had the tying run at third base with two away, but Dubbé got Mears to strikeout swinging on a curveball to end the threat. In the ninth, the Wolverines had a runner on first with two away, but a popup by Conner Gobright ended the game.
Sam Meck was the hard luck loser for Wesley as he went six innings, giving up two runs, one earned, on two hits. He walked one and fanned four in dropping to 0-2.
Washington committed three errors, while Wesley had one error.
The Shoremen are in action once again tomorrow afternoon at home at 3:30 p.m. versus fellow Free State institution #16 Frostburg State.
