Baseball Opens with Sweep

Baseball Opens with Sweep

SALEM, Va. - No. 14/17 Shenandoah University opened up its 2015 baseball season with an ODAC doubleheader sweep over Roanoke Monday afternoon.

Shenandoah (2-0, 2-0 ODAC) was an 11-2 winner in the opener before taking the nightcap 8-1 over Roanoke (1-4, 0-2).

In game one, seniors Daniel Freshley and J.J. McDaniel each had three hits, with McDaniel driving in four runs as SU (1-0, 1-0 ODAC) won its season opener for the fifth time in the past six years.

Junior Ryan Mossman (1-0), who came on in relief of starter Darrell Thompson, earned the win with 5 2/3 innings of scoreless relief.

Mossman allowed four hits and one walk while striking out three.

Thompson pitched the initial 3 1/3 innings and allowed two unearned runs on on two hits and seven walks.

Thompson, the 2014 ODAC Pitcher of the Year, struck out two.

The Hornets scored at least one run in all but the first and six innings; coach Kevin Anderson's squad broke open a 4-2 ballgame with a three-run fifth.

McDaniel proved all of that fifth-inning offense with a 3-run HR.

All nine hitters in the SU lineup either hit safely or drove in a run.

Shenandoah scored four runs in the first and two more in the third before riding the pitching performance of junior Michael Scimanico (1-0) in the nightcap.

Scimanico allowed an unearned run on three hits and two walks in 6.0 innings of work in game two.

Phillip Morse worked the seventh and eighth, striking out three, before Matt Riegler got the final three outs to close out the sweep.

Corbin Lucas had three hits with John Wilt, Freshley and Nolan Overby getting two each in the nightcap.

Overby had a solo HR to cap the four-run first.

Freshley drove in three runs.

Shenandoah is back in action on Wednesday at Washington and Lee.
