3.27.14 BASEBALL: Malone Takes Two from Cavs
(NORTH CANTON, Ohio) Walsh (9-15, 1-5) dropped both ends of a GLIAC double header to Malone University (10-11, 5-1) by the scores of 1-0 and 7-2. Walsh has dropped its last five games. The Cavs look to get back on track on Saturday, when they host Tiffin University in a GLIAC double header on Saturday at 1 pm. The games will be broadcast live on TEAMLINE.
Malone scored an unearned run in the top of the seventh inning to win the opener 1-0. With one out, and runners on first and third Matt Davis lined out to shortstop Jordan Shank (Jr., Canton, OH/GlenOak) for the second out of inning. But, when Shank tried to double the runner off of first base, the throw sailed, and the runner scored from third with the only run of game one. Ian Drapcho (Sr., Dover, OH/HS) made his first start of the season and was tagged with the tough luck loss, falling to 0-1.
Malone scored runs in four different innings in game two to complete the sweep, scoring two in the second, one in each the fourth and sixth innings and three in the fifth. Brandon Whitslar (Jr., Seville, OH/Cloverleaf) started for Walsh and suffered his first loss of the season, falling to 3-1.
The Cavs managed just six hits in the two games.
