LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A late offensive outburst helped the Earlham College baseball team
pick up its third win in a row on Saturday.
The Quakers scored six runs over the last two innings to beat Penn State
University-Behrend 9-0 in a contest at Spalding University.
Leading 3-0 going into the top of the eighth, the Quakers scored five times to put
the game away. Matt Barger put down a perfect bunt that allowed Ted Williams to
score the first run of the frame.
Devin Spurgon was hit by a pitch to drive in the next run. The next run came on a
wild pitch and the final two came home on an error.
In the ninth, Eric Elkus blasted his first career home run to left field to cap the
scoring for the contest.
The Quakers began the contest with single runs in the first three innings.
Alex Arovits knocked in one in the first. In the second, Ethan Bailey had a
run-scoring single to make it 2-0.
Arovits gave the Quakers a 3-0 advantage in the third with a RBI double after
Williams started the inning with a tripled.
Zach Lee (1-0) picked up the win after entering the game with two outs in the first
inning for Earlham starter Matt Brankle, who left the mound with an injury.
Lee worked the next four innings and gave up five hits with a strikeout. Adam
Warning tossed the next two frames giving up a hit.
John Cornett worked the eighth and Garrett York was perfect in the ninth to close
out the game.
