The baseball team seeks its ninth straight win Friday in a 4:30 contest versus No. 4 Wooster (Ohio).

ADRIAN, Mich. – No. 16 Shenandoah University continues its play at the Adrian Regional Friday afternoon with a 4:30 contest versus No. 4 College of Wooster (Ohio).

Based on the NCAA Tournament manual, Shenandoah (35-10) should be the home team in the winner's bracket semi-final versus the Scots (37-8).

SU advanced with a 3-2 victory over Marietta Thursday morning in game one while Wooster followed with a 4-2, game two victory Wabash (Ind.).

Friday's game is just the second-ever between the Hornets and Scots in baseball. Shenandoah was a 7-1 winner over Wooster in a spring break contest in 1992.

Coach Kevin Anderson's squad comes into Friday's contest on an eight-game winning streak – the Hornets have not lost since dropping an extra inning decision to NCAA Tournament participant Virginia Wesleyan on April 28.

SU is hitting .329 as a team with Chase Smallwood leading the squad at .398, Robert Marcelle .379, Grant Thompson .354 and Tristan Baker .352.

Baker and Christian Rice each had two hits Friday in the win over Marietta.

Anderson looks to be in a great spot with the pitching staff as senior Colin Morse threw a complete game Thursday.

Junior Robert Klinchock (6-3, 5.40 ERA, 39 K in 60.0 innings pitched), freshman Michael Prosperi (3-1, 1.80 ERA in 40.0 IP) and senior Michael Bugonowicz (5-2, 2.18 ERA and 66 K in 62.0 IP) figure to be the most likely candidates to start with Gerard DePhillips (6-1, 6.49 ERA in 34 2/3 IP) and Reeves Lowry (3-0, 4.70 ERA in 23.0 IP) as additional possibilities.

Wooster is hitting .356 as a team while scoring 10.6 runs per contest.

Junior shortstop Michael Wielansky is hitting an even .400 on the season with 19 doubles, six triples and six home runs in 175 at-bats.

The Scots have hit 54 home runs this season with six players hitting at least four. Dan Harwood, with 14 dingers, leads this group.

Chandler Dippman threw a complete game, his third of the season, in the win versus the Little Giants, so the Wooster coaching staff can turn to three pitchers: Nanak Saran, Brian Murray and Alec Hammond, with at least five wins.

Saran is 8-2 in his 11 starts and sports a 2.80 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 64 1/3 innings.

The Scots are 7-3 over their last 10 games and have wins over Adrian Regional opponents Otterbein and Wabash during that time.
