Championship Game Preview

YORK, Pa. – Shenandoah University will attempt to earn its third regional title since 2009 in a 3 p.m. contest Monday afternoon versus Wheaton (Mass.).

The Hornets (41-9) and Lyons (26-15) were set to play at 10 a.m. this morning at PEOPLEsBank Park, but that start was delayed due to overnight rains in the York area.

The championship game is now to be played on Jaquet Field on the York College of Pennsylvania campus.

The game time and location will be announced via the Middle Atlantic Conference office Twitter feed:

Shenandoah and Wheaton are playing for one of the three remaining spots in the NCAA Division III World Series in Appleton, Wisconsin.

SU is hoping to punch its ticket to Appleton for the third time since 2009 and the first since 2010. Should the Hornets make it, they would join ODAC rival Roanoke in Appleton.

The Maroons won the South Region Championship Sunday with a 13-5 victory over Salisbury.

Shenandoah brings a .289 tournament average into the tournament with Abel Arocho hitting .476, Jake Loew .364 and Tristan Baker .320. Arocho has scored a team-high six runs with Loew driving in five.

Loew and Baker, with two doubles each, lead the squad in extra base hits.

Arocho is also in the midst of a 20-game hitting streak.

It figures to be 'all hands on deck' on the mound today with only senior Neil Dutton (9 1/3 innings pitched Sunday) likely unavailable.

Dutton had two wins in relief yesterday and four of the Hornets five wins on the mound have come from the relief corps. Steve Jones is 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA in 4 1/3 innings pitched with starter Gerard DePhillips picking up the other victory. He went the distance in Saturday morning's victory over Lesley (Mass.).

Colin Morse, the No. 1 starter and ODAC Pitcher of the Year, figures to get the start. Morse is 9-0 this season with a 2.66 ERA.

Wheaton is hitting .287 as a team this season and came into Saturday's play hitting .333 in the tournament.

Right fielder Zach Goodwin-Boyd leads the Lyons in the tournament with a .538 average – he is 7-for-13 in the squad's four games with four doubles, a home run and three RBI.

The pitching staff has allowed eight earned runs in 36 innings (2.00 ERA) and has 21 strikeouts in that span.

Dan Southerland went 6 1/3 for Wheaton yesterday with Brady Furdon throwing 8.0 innings Saturday versus Johns Hopkins.

Trevor Marques threw a complete game four-hit shutout versus SU on Friday. He struck out nine in that contest.
