WINCHESTER, Va. – Shenandoah University ran its baseball winning streak to seven games Tuesday evening with a 7-6 non-league victory over Elizabethtown.

Pinch hitter Wyatt Potter had a bases loaded single with no outs in the bottom of the ninth to lift the Hornets (25-11) to the win over E-Town (12-25).


Potter hit his ball to the base of the wall in left-center, allowing Jamie Naill to trot home with the game-winning run.

The Blue Jays had brought in an extra infielder in an attempt to cut down the run at the plate, but Potter made the move academic by lifting the long fly ball over left-fielder Dylan Everly's (playing in left-center) head.

The game-winning hit made a winner of senior Brandon McKenzie (2-0), the ninth SU pitcher on the night. McKenzie had given up two runs in the top of the frame but got the win as Shenandoah got its first walkoff win of the season.

SU took the early lead with single runs in the first and second innings only to see E-Town answer with two runs in the third and one more in the fifth.

The Hornets scored their first run on a Luke Nussman sacrifice fly to center before Tristan Baker was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded.

Baker had scored that initial run by singling through the left side with one out, stealing second and to third on an infield error.

Shenandoah regained the lead with a three-run seventh. Pinch hitter Grant Thompson led off with a single to right and following a Baker sacrifice bunt, came home on Keegan Woolford's double to right center.

Woolford advanced to third on an infield error and scored the go-ahead run as Jaime Naill drew a bases loaded walk.

SU scored its fifth run on another bases loaded walk, this one to Matt Moon, and its sixth run came via a balk.


Shenandoah hosts Hampden-Sydney this weekend in the opening round of the ODAC Baseball Tournament.
