B-W Baseball Team Grinds Its Way Through Seven Games

The Baldwin-Wallace College baseball team had to grind its way through seven games, three postponements, a rainout and a rain delay last week. The Yellow Jackets won three of their first four games to start the week, but lost the last three and dropped to 15–14–1 on the season.

After waiting all last weekend for decent weather, the Jackets swept a rescheduled Ohio Athletic Conference doubleheader from Capital University in Columbus on Monday. Then they had to sit through another postponement on Tuesday before traveling to Alliance and splitting an OAC doubleheader with Mount Union College. A day later, they hit the road again, losing a non-conference game to Malone College at Thurman Munson Stadium in Canton.

The Jackets finally took the field at home on Saturday in a key conference match-up with Heidelberg College, but the long week appeared to have taken its toll, and they dropped the twinbill despite taking leads into the middle innings of both games. The sweep put the Student Princes on top of the OAC standings and knocked the Jackets down to sixth place at 7–7.

In spite of the rough week, the Jackets are still just a game out of an OAC playoff spot. But with only four conference games left, it won’t be an easy game to pick up, and they’ll have to start with second-place powerhouse Marietta College on Saturday at Heritage Field.
