B-W Baseball Team Upsets Second-Ranked Wooster

The Baldwin-Wallace College baseball team upset the second-ranked College of Wooster 7–3 last Thursday at Art Murray Field in Wooster.

Sophomore pitcher Scott Luthman snuffed out a 15-game Wooster winning streak by throwing an eight-inning gem at the Fighting Scots’ high-powered lineup. He scattered eight hits and only walked one batter on the way to his first win of the season. His classmate, first baseman and relief pitcher Brian Boveington, closed the game by striking out the last two Scots batters.

Senior second baseman Nate Luken, who went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and two runs batted in, and junior catcher Matt Bolte, who reached base in all five of his plate appearances and hit his first home run of the season, led the Yellow Jackets’ tenacious offense.

Earlier in the week, B-W split a doubleheader with Muskingum College, as junior pitcher Jim Jaskowak struck out nine Muskies in seven innings for a complete-game, 6–3 victory in the Jackets’ Ohio Athletic Conference opener.

Thanks to our typical early spring weather, the Jackets, now 8–6 overall and 1–1 in the OAC, will play seven games this week, including a pair of conference doubleheaders against John Carroll University and Ohio Northern University, and a crosstown match-up with Case Western Reserve University.
