Baseball Bobcats Fall Twice to West Virginia State

Baseball Bobcats Fall Twice to West Virginia State

INSTITUTE – The old adage you can't win if you don't score held true here today for the West Virginia Wesleyan baseball team in a Mountain East Conference doubleheader with the West Virginia State Yellow Jackets.

Wesleyan was shutout in both games – 6-0 and 11-0.

The Bobcat offense managed a total of seven hits in the two games.

The two losses were also damaging as it slipped the Bobcats back to fourth place in the MEC South Division. The conference only takes the top three teams in each division to its tournament.

The 'Cats still have plenty of time to recover as everyone in the league still has eight conference games to play.

Wesleyan had just three hits in game one, a double by Nick Jones and singles by James Fraser and John Koon.

Hunter Rotarius suffered the loss on the mound as he went 5 1/3 innings.

In the nightcap, Wesleyan hung around until the eighth inning.

Wesleyan was down 4-0 heading into the bottom of the eighth when they allowed Concord a seven-run inning.

The Bobcats collected four singles in the game with Michael Logsdon going 3-for-4 at the plate and Fraser getting the other hit.

Brandon Stratton suffered the loss for Wesleyan as he went 6 2/3 innings.

Wesleyan is now 19-19 overall and 11-13 in the MEC.

They will return to action this Tuesday as they host Salem International in a non-conference doubleheader starting at 3 p.m.
