Pitching shines in wins over York and Hampden-Sydney

HAMPDEN-SYDNEY, Va.--  The Denison offense pounded out 21 hits and the pitching staff hurled back-to-back shutouts, as the Big Red blanked York, 7-0, and Hampden-Sydney, 9-0 on Sunday afternoon at Ty Cobb Ballpark.  With the wins, DU returns to Granville with a 2-1 record to start the 2018 campaign.

Game one of Sunday's doubleheader saw Denison take on York College.  Head coach Mike Deegan handed the ball to first-year pitcher Taylor Perrett who was making his collegiate debut.  The Denison offense did exactly what they should do for a rookie, putting five runs on the board in the top of the first.

Perrett gave up a hit to the first batter he faced in the bottom of the first and it was smooth sailing after that.  In 7.0 innings pitched, walked three but did not give up another hit while striking out five. 

Denison's five-run first came about after a single by Noah Hahn and a double by Tanner Johnson put runners on second and third with one out.  Brian McAuliffe's RBI single scored Hahn and Will Krushena followed by reaching on an error by the third baseman, scoring Johnson.  Jake Ryder delivered a base hit that scored McAuliffe, and then advanced on a passed ball that plated Krushena.  Sam Frazen drove in the fifth and final run on a single that scored Ryder.

Two more insurance runs were added in the seventh on a double-steal by Johnson and Vince Walker that saw Walker steal home.  Johnson came around to score when McAuliffe reached first base on an error by the catcher after striking out.

Caleb Struewing worked the final two innings in relief of Perrett. He gave up one hit while striking out two.  York's Will Grega took the loss after allowing three earned runs on 12 hits in 5.0 innings pitched.

In game two, Denison avenged Saturday's loss to the Tigers with more early-offense and brilliant pitching.

A 3-run triple by Krushena in the first inning scored McAuliffe, Johnson, and Hahn. A sacrifice fly by Ryder put the Big Red out in front, 4-0 heading to the home half of the first.

John Troll took the hill and proceeded to pitch seven innings of two-hit shutout baseball.  The junior right-hander struck out four and faced only 24 batters to improve to 1-0 on the season.  Mikey Rivera pitched the final two innings, allowing one hit while striking out one.

McAuliffe was 3-for-4 with two runs scored and Krushena drove in four runs thanks to his three-run triple and an RBI on a fielder's choice in the seventh.

In the two games, combined, Hahn and McAuliffe were 9-for-4 (.444).

DU returns to action next weekend (March 10-11) when they travel to Lexington, Kentucky for one game against Capital University and a pair of games against Transylvania University.
