WINCHESTER, Va. - No. 9/11 Shenandoah University combined 23 hits with a strong pitching performance to dominate Mount Aloysius 20-4 in non-league baseball action Thursday afternoon.
Shenandoah (14-5) starter Zach Teeple overcame a shaky start to improve to 3-1 on the season after allowing three runs on four hits and four walks in 6.0 innings of action.
Teeple, who struck out five, gave up a leadoff single to Mount Aloysius (8-7) followed by a home run, but settled in to record the next 13 outs before the Mounties scored their next run.
By that point, the score was 14-3 in favor of the Hornets as SU put up an 11-spot in the fourth.
Coach Kevin Anderson saw 16 men come to the plate with the first eight reaching base via a hit.
Nate Loman started off the onslaught with a solo home run to left center before Lew Johnson, Joe Coleman, Tristan Baker, John Wilt, Abel Arocho and Jake Loew had consecutive singles. Dan Cameron, who finished the day 4 for 4 with two home runs and a double, finished that consecutive hit streak with a two-run double to center.
Loman had a home run and a double in the frame with Wilt contributing a single and a double. Wilt drove in five runs on the day with two singles and a double.
All nine starters had at least one hit with Loman joining Cameron with four hits and four RBI. Loman had a double in the second, the home run and a double in the fourth and a single in the sixth. His replacement, freshman Mason Dwinnell, had the final hit of the day with a double to right center.
Following the home run, Teeple retired 10 of the next 12 batters with the only two batters reaching base following a wild pitch and a throwing error following strikeouts.
Four relievers worked the seventh, eighth and ninth with Robert Klinchock recording the final out of the game on a strikeout.
