Hassert of Villanova
John Whooley delivered a walk-off double in the tenth inning at Villanova Ballpark on Friday to lift the Wildcats past Rider, 7-6.

Whooley finished the day with two hits while Cameron Hassert led the offense, finishing 4-for-4 with four RBIs and two runs scored. 

Rider took a three-run lead in the eighth, but the Wildcats battled with a run in the bottom of the frame and then two more in the ninth to push the contest to extras. Hassert played a role in both innings, collecting an inside-the-park homer in the eighth while delivering a two-run single in the ninth that evened the score.

Zach Camp recorded the win. Chic DeGaetano started for the Wildcats, surrendering three runs (two earned) over 5 1/3 innings. He whiffed six and didn't walk a batter.

The two clubs resume their weekend set on Saturday.
