Chestnut Hill Baseball
Chestnut Hill pieced together a stellar performance on Saturday afternoon, securing their first two wins of the season as they wrapped up the four-game series at the Wilson Tobs College Classic in Wilson, N.C. 
 
With a combination of strong pitching, timely hitting, and solid baserunning, the Griffins emerged victorious against West Virginia Wesleyan, 9-4, and the College of Saint Rose, 12-3. 
 
With these wins, the Griffins now stand at a 2-6 record for the season. 
 
Starting pitchers Ben Bradt and Dylan Broderick delivered standout performances, each earning a well-deserved win in their respective games. Bradt impressed in the opener against West Virginia Wesleyan, pitching five innings and allowing just two runs on five hits while striking out three. Broderick followed suit against St. Rose, tossing six frames and conceding only two runs on six hits while striking out seven. 
 
Colby Seelig and Marlon Rose also made notable contributions, with Seelig securing his first save of the season in the opener and Rose recording his first save in the nightcap. 
 
Michael Pascoe led the offensive charge with three hits in the opener, while Phoenix Bowman and Christian Peluso contributed two hits each. Bowman also made an impact with two RBIs. Justin Geiger showcased exceptional baserunning skills, tying a school record with five stolen bases, while Pascoe added four steals to the team's tally. 
 
Pascoe continued to rake in second contest, driving in four runs, while Andrew Sawarynski added two RBIs with a two-run home run. Eight different Griffins contributed with at least one hit, with Sawarynski leading the pack with two hits. RJ Huth and Calvin McCall showcased their speed on the basepaths, stealing three bases each. 
 
Chestnut Hill returns to the diamond in their home opener on Tuesday as they host Bloomsburg. 
 
Elsewhere, securing victories over Concord and Frostburg State at the USA Baseball National Training Center on Saturday, No. 18 West Chester (6-0) extended their undefeated streak in impressive fashion. 
 
The Golden Rams, who have dominated each of their first six contests, showcased their offensive prowess once again. Against Concord, the Golden Rams clinched a narrow 10-9 win. Following this close contest, they continued their momentum by dispatching Frostburg State with a decisive 10-3 victory. 
 
The Golden Rams have been held to single-digit runs scored only once this season. 
 
Evan Profy and Joe Kaleck each finished 3-for-5, and Casey Vaughan had a pair of hits in the opener to pace the West Chester offense. Kaleck's two-run double highlighted a three-run sixth that proved to be the difference. 
 
Anthony Boccio 3-for-3 with three runs scored while Zack Miles was 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs in the nightcap.
