UNION, N.J. – The Shenandoah University baseball team will complete a long day of play Saturday at Union NCAA Regional by taking on Westfield (Mass.) State in a 7 p.m. elimination game. 

Shenandoah (32-13) advanced to the contest with a 9-2 win earlier Saturday over Ithaca, while Westfield (28-15) fell to host Kean in the second game of the afternoon.

The two teams are fighting for the right to take on Kean in Sunday's championship round. The Cougars will have to be beat two times in order for SU or Westfield to claim the title.

Westfield, the MASCAC champions, opened the Union Regional with a 4-2 win over top-seeded Ithaca before falling to Kean.

Kean defeated Shenandoah, 5-3, on Friday to complete the first day of action.

Westfield entered the second day of play hitting .299 as a team with outfielder Anthony Crowley leading the way at .385. Four Owls starters are hitting better than .300 this season.

On the mound, freshman Alex Honey figures to get the call this evening for his eighth start of the year. Honey is 6-0 with a 2.93 ERA and 22 strikeouts in 46.0 innings pitched.

The Hornets will also call on a freshman as Carson Kulina has been tapped by SU skipper Kevin Anderson for the start. Kulina is 5-0 with a 4.39 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 41.0 innings pitched.

Kulina was the winning pitcher in last week's 8-6 win over top-seeded Randolph-Macon in the second game of the ODAC Tournament.

Tristan Baker extended his hitting streak to 23 games earlier today with a 2-for-4 performance that included a double, an RBI and a run scored.

Baker is now eight hits from the all-time lead at SU and four runs from the top spot in that category. He is already the Hornets career leader in games played, starts and walks.
