Pittsburgh, Pa-- The Redhawks split a pair of non conference home games against Waynesburg (1-11, 4-2) at John Arnold Sr Memorial Field this afternoon. The potent Redhawk offense was stymied for much of the afternoon but some timely defensive plays forced a split of the double header.
The offense was held in check throughout the first game as Brian Resnik of Waynesburg kept them off balance and threw a complete game.
The Jackets started with the first two in their lineup getting on and coming around to score giving them a 2-0 lead.
A big 5th inning for Waynesburg put the game out of reach as walks and a few timely placed singles earned the Jackets five runs. Final Score: La Roche 1 Waynesburg 11.
A sac fly by David Lemely and a 2 run double by Cody Scruggs got the Redhawks rolling and made it 3-1 after the first. Freshmen Nick Tunstall got out of a bases loaded jam in the top of the 2nd to negate a response from the Jackets. Colin Williamson singled home Tyler Craig to push the lead to 4-1 La Roche through 2 innings.
The Redhawk's split brings their record to (15-7, 2-0). They will be back on the field tomorrow against AMCC foe Hilbert College at 1 and 3pm.
