Williamstown, MA.- First year shortstop Kellen Hatheway led the offense today for the Ephs going 4-8, with 2 home runs, 6 RBI's and 4 hits as the Williams College baseball team edged Wesleyan 5-2 to gain a split of a double header.
In game one, Wesleyan took the lead in the bottom of the first with a two-run home run from Jordan Farber. Both teams were pretty quiet in the next few innings until the Ephs were able to get on the board in the bottom of the sixth. Doug Schaffer led the charge with a single to left center field followed by a single from Kellen Hatheway. Adam Dulsky grounded out to send Doug Schaffer home and a collision between Adam Regensburg and Wesleyan's second baseman, Will O'Sullivan, inhibited O'Sullivan from making the throw home giving Hatheway time to score tying run.
Duff pitched all 7 innings for the Ephs and earned the win on the mound giving up 4 hits, 2 runs and striking out 4. Nick Miceli took the loss today for Wesleyan pitching 6.1 innings, giving up 5 hits, 5 runs and striking out 7.
Williams began to gain some momentum in the bottom of the 8th scoring one run but, unfortunately, that was all they could put up on the board for the game. Wesleyan ended up spoiling the Ephs' bid at a series sweep and took the final game of the series by the score of 13-6.
Jack Bohen took the loss in the second game for Williams pitching 4.2 innings, giving up 11 hits, 7 runs (6 earned) and striking out 2. Ethan Rode collected the win for Wesleyan pitching 6 innings, giving up 9 hits, 5 runs and striking out 1.
The Ephs moved to 8-14 overall and 4-5 in the NESCAC West, while Wesleyan moves to 16-7 overall and 3-3 in the NESCAC West.
