Baseball Sweeps Doubleheader Against Lincoln, 7-0 and 12-7, to Extend Win Streak to Three

Garnet Valley, Pa. – The University of the Sciences baseball team completed a doubleheader sweep of Lincoln, 7-0 and 12-7, on Wednesday afternoon at the Mapleshade Sports Institute, extending the Devils' win streak to three games. 

Kris Morgenweck threw the complete-game shutout in game one, allowing just three hits in his seven innings with nine strikeouts against just two walks. 

His seventh career win moved him into ninth in program history, while he became just the fifth Devil with multiple shutouts in a career. 

Justin Skinner had a career day at the plate, finishing a perfect 3-for-3 with career-highs of three RBI and two runs in game one. He also hit his first career home run and added a double as part of his second career three-hit performance. 

He then reached base three times in the nightcap, finishing with two more hits, two more runs and a walk. 

Ryan Johnson also reached base in all three of his plate appearances in game one, as the junior went 2-for-2 with a double, walk and run scored as part of his first career multi-hit game. 

Nate Steele also had two hits, finishing 2-for-3 with two runs and an RBI in the opener.

University of the Sciences led throughout almost the entirety of the afternoon, plating two in the first inning of game one before putting up a six-run second in game two. 

Brian Magee paced an offense that recorded a season-high 14 hits, finishing a perfect 2-for-2 with a career-best four RBI, two runs, two walks, a triple and a double. 

Also reaching base three times was Matt McClennen, who went 2-for-4 with two runs, two RBI and a walk. 

Chris Anderson and Jacob Whittington made it five Devils who finished with multiple hits, while Johnson, Steele and Capozza all also reached base twice. 

Hiro Mizutni picked up the win, throwing the first four innings, before John Michael Sabatino worked two perfect frames in relief. 

University of the Sciences takes a week off before opening Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference play at defending CACC champion and preseason favorite No. 21 Wilmington next Wednesday, March 20 at 12 p.m.
