@AdrianBaseball Completes Four-Game Series Sweep of Alma as Offense Continues To Roll, 6-1 and 14-10

ADRIAN, Mich.--A change in venue didn't matter. After piling up 37 hits and scoring 35 runs in a 17-0 and 18-1 doubleheader sweep in Alma on Saturday, the Adrian College offense continued to produce when the series shifted here at home on Sunday. The Bulldogs completed the four-game Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association baseball series sweep over the Scots, 6-1 and 14-10.

THE BASICS
= Final Scoreline, Game 1: Adrian 6-7-1, Alma 1-8-0

= Final Scoreline, Game 2: Adrian 14-17-0, Alma 10-14-2

= Location: Nicolay Field, Adrian, Mich.; Weather: Sunny, 75 degrees, Wind slight

= Records: Adrian Bulldogs 19-8 overall (14-2 MIAA), Alma Scots 17-10 overall (8-8 MIAA)

FOR ADRIAN
= Junior Ian Mikowski was the tablesetter in the leadoff spot, going 5-for-7 at the plate with three walks, five runs scored and two runs batted in during the doubleheader.

= Classmate Ryan Dorow extended a long hit streak with four more today and two RBI.

THE OPPOSITION
David Carles went 5-for-8 on the afternoon, including a four-hit, two-RBI performance in the nightcap.

Alex Peczynski had five hits in seven at-bats with three RBI on the day.

Dayne San Miguel had two hits in both games, and Adam Thoryk had three in the twinbill.

HOW IT HAPPENED, GAME ONE
= Senior Tommy Eng threw a complete-game to improve to 4-0 for Adrian. He scattered eight hits over seven innings, walking one and giving up an earned run. He had five strikeouts.

= The Bulldogs jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the very first frame. Senior Josh Knorr started it by hitting a RBI-double to left-center field and stole home on a double-steal. Then senior Matt Andrus capped it with a single through the left side for a RBI.

= Adrian tacked on two more runs in the next inning and never trailed.

HOW IT HAPPENED, GAME TWO
= Junior Zach Dunn was credited with the win in relief, working 1-2/3 scoreless innings without allowing a hit or walk and getting one strikeout.

= Mark Cash picked up his first save in just two appearances this spring. With Alma threatening in the top of the ninth and two runs already in, Cash got a force out against the second batter he faces to leave the bases loaded and preserve the 14-10 win with potential go-ahead run on deck.

= Trailing 6-5 going into the home fourth, Adrian took the lead for good with four runs for a 9-6 advantage. Andrus got the key hit with a two-run single up the middle, and then junior Dakota Cararo singled down the left field line.
