PAC BASEBALL TOURNAMENT
Grove City 10, Thiel 1
Grove City 10, Waynesburg 3
The Grove City College baseball team earned its second straight berth in the Presidents' Athletic Conference Championship by routing visiting Thiel and Waynesburg Colleges by respective finals of 10-1 and 10-3. The Wolverines meet Bethany College Tuesday at noon in Bethany, WV needing nothing less than a two-game sweep to claim its first PAC baseball title ever. Bethany moved to 2-0 in the double-elimination tournament with a 4-3 triumph in 11 innings over Waynesburg earlier Tuesday at Thiel.
The Wolverines cracked four home runs on the day, including a grand slam off the bat of J.G Louden (Morgantown, WV/University) that broke a 2-2 tie against Waynesburg in the fourth inning. Drew Hoagland (Butler, PA/Knoch), Adam Booth (North Canton, OH/Uniontown Lake) and Ron Jones (Butler, PA/Knoch) also homered in the pair.
Derek Gearhart (West Middlesex, PA/West Middlesex) contributed two doubles in the Waynesburg win.
Chris Hussar (Newtown Square, PA/Delaware County Christian) notched the victory (3-1) against Thiel, scattering six hits in seven complete innings. Jeff Meyers (Spencerport, NY/Churchville-Chili) became the squad's first four-game winner this season (4-1), striking out six in seven strong against Waynesburg.
Last year, Grove City was swept by Waynesburg in the tournament's championship round.
