HOCKESSIN, DE – The Wilson College men’s baseball team earned a Colonial States Athletic Conference victory on the road Thursday against the University of Valley Forge.

How It Happened: 

The Phoenix got on the board in the 1st inning as freshman Nick Quinn (Odenton, Md., St. Mary’s)scored on a sacrifice fly by classmate Cole Rinehart (Boonsboro, Md., Boonsboro).

After a 1-2-3 inning defensively, the Phoenix offense erupted for 7 runs in the top of the 2nd inning.

Freshman Joseph Cofer (Dumfries, Va., Forest Park) doubled to left field to bring home freshman Grant Astle (Port Deposit, Md., The John Carroll School) for a 2-0 lead.

Freshman Juan Rosario (Hollywood, Fla., Hollywood Hills) followed with a 2-RBI triple to right field that scored Cofer and freshman Eduardo Rosado III (Kissimmee, Fla., Gateway) for a 4-0 Phoenix advantage.

Quinn struck again, this time with an RBI single to center field that plated Rosario.

Later in the inning, the visitors scored a pair of runs on Patriot errors to make it 7-0. The final run came across as junior James Husar (Oxford, Conn., ) singled to center field to drive in Rinehart as the Phoenix pushed the lead to 8-0.

After the Patriots put their first run on the board in the 3rd inning, the Phoenix tacked on 2 more runs in the top of the 4th. Holz blasted a 2-run double to center field to score freshman Hunter Cheek (San Antonio, Texas, Smithson Valley) and Quinn for a 10-1 advantage.

In the bottom of the 6th, the Patriots cut the Phoenix lead in half to make the score 10-5.

Again the Phoenix had an answer and took advantage of a Patriots error to score two more runs to make it 12-5 in the 7th. The Phoenix bullpen only allowed two hits the rest of the way and the team picked up an important CSAC win by a final score of 12-5.

Inside the Box Score: 

Rosario paced the offense going 4-for-6 with 2 RBI and 2 runs scored. Quin went 3-for-6 with a pair of RBI and 2 runs scored while Cheek and Holz each tallied 2 hits. 6 Phoenix pitchers took to the hill to shut down the Patriots offense.
