Baseball put on an offensive show in their two wins against the Wilmington College Quakers (Wilmington, Ohio) Tuesday. Kenyon (12-5) took 12 innings to win the first game, but rolled to victory in the second game. The two wins brought the team’s win streak to six to add to the six wins and five losses they amassed before the streak began.
The first game against Wilmington (3-18) took almost four hours. It went back and forth until the Lords capitalized on two Quaker errors in the 12th inning to score three runs and secure a 14-11 victory.
The Lords continued their stellar performance at the plate in the second game, plating seven runs in the second inning and five in the third. Pitchers Sam Gillespie ’16 and Ross Scheinberg ’19 dominated from the mound to help the Lords cruise to a 12-4 win.
Offensively, a mix of young talent and veteran experience leads the team. Jason Clebowicz ’19 went 3-4 with three runs batted in in the first game, while Matt Contreras ’19 added two hits and an RBI. Across the two games Jackson Celestin ’17 went 4-9 with three runs and one RBI.
The Lords are heating up at the right time and look to extend their winning streak as they begin conference play on Saturday with a doubleheader at Hiram College (2-11).
