LA ROCHE BASEBALL TEAM SNAGS WIN AGAINST MARIETTA DEFEATS #12 NATIONALLY RANKED COLLEGE THIS WEEK


3/23/2009

Pittsburgh, March 20, 2009 — After a disappointing 2-5 start to the 2009 season, the La Roche College Baseball team defeated #12 Marietta College yesterday 10-8 in the first game of a doubleheader. It was a night of firsts for La Roche, beating Marietta College for the first time during the two teams’ history. In addition, La Roche had never defeated a nationally ranked program until this March 18 matchup.

"This victory was a true reflection of the direction that this baseball program is heading,” Coach Rowe stated after the game. “For us to finally compete with a program with the prestigious history of Marietta College is huge for us as we continue to build the strengths of our program."

La Roche was led offensively by junior shortstop Keith Borman’s 3-4 day at the plate. Junior Andrew Wilmoth and freshman Mitchell Meyers also slapped 2 hits apiece. Reed Tomlinson got the win for the Redhawks, going 4.2 innings, giving up 5 runs on 8 hits while striking out 3 batters. In game two, La Roche jumped out to an early 7-1 lead before a Marietta comeback in the bottom of the sixth inning to take the lead 10-9. La Roche outhit Marietta on the day 23-18. The team opens up AMCC play on Saturday, March 21, when they play host to Pitt-Bradford at 1 p.m.
