ADRIAN, Mich. – The No. 16 Shenandoah University baseball team continues play at the Adrian Regional Saturday afternoon with a 12:15 elimination round contest versus Ithaca (N.Y.).

Shenandoah, 35-11 and the fifth-seed in the tourney, takes on the sixth-seeded Bombers (29-16) for the first time in history in the second contest of the day Saturday.

The Hornets dropped into the elimination round after dropping a 13-5 decision to No. 4 Wooster (Ohio) Friday night.

The Bombers hit .308 as a team with five players: Sam Little, Webb Little, Cam Fuoti, Jake Generali and Domenic Boresta, hitting at least .306 and having a minimum of 125 at-bats.

Sam Little leads this group with a .365 average to go along with 13 doubles, three home runs and 37 runs batted in.

Webb Little has a team-high five home runs.

Jake Binder and Emmett Dunn have started Ithaca's two games on the mound, with Binder taking the loss versus La Roche and Dunn lasting only five outs against Otterbein.

Jack Morello and Tyler Hill have each made nine starts this season with Morello posting a 5-3 record, 3.41 ERA and a team-high 57 strikeouts in 63 1/3 innings pitched.

Hill is 3-5 with a 3.81 in 52.0 innings pitched. He has 45 strikeouts.

Shenandoah went five deep on the mound Friday – starter Robert Klinchock threw 5.0 innings with Jonathan Dance tossing 3.0.

Coach Kevin Anderson has 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) available along Gerard DePhillips (6-1, 6.49 ERA in 34 2/3 IP) and Reeves Lowry (3-0, 4.70 ERA in 23.0 IP).
