TUCSON, AZ. -- The Williams College baseball team lost a twinbill Wednesday, dropping a 10-8 decison to Lewis & Clark University and then a 15-4 decision to Oberlin College.
The Ephs have lost four straight and stand at 1-4 after three days of their spring trip. They have the day off Thursday before playing Bethel and Buena Vista Friday.
In the nightcap, the Ephs rallied from an early 2-0 deficit to take a 4-2 lead with two runs in the third and two more in the fourth. In the third, David Rosas got things going with a one-out single. Adam Regensburg drew a walk and Kellen Hatheway lined a single to left that scored Rosas. Jack Roberts followed with a single to center that tied the game, but Oberlin starter Harrison Wollman wiggled out of the inning with a strikeout and a pop out.
In the Williams fourth, Jack Cloud led off with a double down the left-field line. He was sacrificed to third on a bunt by Alex Panstares and scored when Nathan Michalski singled up the middle. Rosas walked and Regensburg then grounded a 2-0 pitch through the right side to score Michalski for a 4-2 lead.
Oberlin responded with five runs in the bottom of the frame, taking a 7-4 lead and knocking Eph starter Will O'Brien from the game.
Williams had nine hits in the loss. Hatheway was 2 for 5 with an RBI.
