Bucs Sweep MSOE on Senior Day

May 4, 2011 at 6:47 pm

Beloit, WI -- The 2011 Beloit College Baseball seniors came in to Wednesday's doubleheader as the winningest class in Buccaneer Baseball history.

They added two more with a sweep of Milwaukee School of Engineering, winning 3-2 and 9-1.

The eight seniors - Rick Chernik, Mike Eastburn Dan Edwards, Mike Kovach, Jake Majeski, Drew Oswald, Mike Ross and Jon Siil - now have 89 wins in their four-year career.

Edwards did his best to make the day a good one in game one with six innings of one-run ball in a rare start, scattering four hits for the win.  Aaron Bushur pitched the seventh and got his fifth save of the season.

Beloit jumped on top in the second on Oswald's second home run of the season.  They added two more in the fifth on an RBI triple by Evan Mascitti and a run-scoring groundout by Kovach.

The Raiders got their first run in the sixth on a solo home run and made it a one-run game in the seventh before Bushur closed it out.

Jake Tresemer had two hits to lead the offense.

In game two the Buccaneers got out front in the first when Kovach led off with a double, stole third and scored on Al Loth's groundout.  The double was the 37th of Kovach's career, breaking Rick Horvath's (2003-06) record.

Beloit added four in the second, the big hit coming on a two-run single by Loth.  Kovach got an RBI on a bases-loaded walk and Jordan Jaenicke hit a run-scoring groundout.

The Bucs made it 8-0 with three runs in the fifth.  Ross and Sean Little had RBI's while Jaenicke scored the other run on the front end of a double-steal with Ross.

Mascitti closed out the Beloit scoring in the sixth with his first career home run, clearing the left field fence.  MSOE got on the board in the seventh.

Dalton Deckert pitched six innings of one-hit, shutout ball, striking out four, for the win on the mound.  Loth finished up in the seventh, giving up the lone run while striking out three.

Tresemer, Little and Mascitti each had two hits.

The Bucs are right back at it on Thursday when they play Rockford College at The Ballpark.  Game time for the single game is 4:00 p.m.
