Baseball Sets Program Record for Wins with Doubleheader Sweep of Caldwell on Senior Day

Baseball Sets Program Record for Wins with Doubleheader Sweep of Caldwell on Senior Day

PHILADELPHIA – The University of the Sciences baseball team set the program record for wins, sweeping Caldwell, 7-2 and 18-3, in a Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) doubleheader on Saturday afternoon at Richie Ashburn Field. 

Prior to first pitch, the Devils honored the USciences Baseball Class of 2019: Andrew Szpindor, Nick Amicon, Joseph Jachimiak and Matt Guyger.  

Szpindor threw his first career complete game in game one, while Amicon, Jachimiak and Gugyer all reached base multiple times in the nightcap. 

University of the Sciences' 15th win broke the program record of 14 set in 2011 and 2013. The Devils' 11th CACC victory ties the program record set in 2011. 

Caldwell actually struck first in the top of the first of game one, but Chris Anderson countered with his first career home run, a two-run shot that gave USciences the lead for good. 

The Devils would tack on four more runs in the second, and Szpindor took over from there.  

He would allow just one more run, scattering nine hits on the afternoon with four strikeouts and zero walks. No more than one runner would reach in the fourth through eighth innings, until he stranded the bases loaded in the ninth. 

Anderson went a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate with three RBI, and also had a walk, for his third three-hit game of the year. 

Matt McClennen, Justin Skinner and Nate Steele all also had two hits, while Joe Duffy drove two runs in and scored twice. 

It was all University of the Sciences in the second game, as the Devils recorded 16 hits in the seven-inning contest. 

Again Anderson, McClennen and Skinner all had multiple hits, and they were joined by Amicon and Jachimiak. 

Anderson went 2-for-3 with four runs, two RBI, two more walks and a double to finish the day 5-for-6 with three walks, five runs and five RBI.

McCleennen drove in six runs, including hitting his first career collegiate home run.

Amicon capped his Senior Day with a 3-for-4 performance, which included a career-high three RBI and a double. 

Jachimiak's three-hit game was the second of his career, matching a career-best, and he also scored a career-high three runs. 

Joe Duffy walked three times and scored three runs, while Skinner, AJ Pena and Mike Gaitan all drove in two. 

Starter John Michael Sabatino threw five scoreless frames before surrendering one earned run in the sixth. He gave up just four hits, while striking out three.  

University of the Sciences is back at Richie Ashburn Field on Wednesday, hosting Dominican for a doubleheader at 12 p.m.
