Game 2 spelled major trouble for the Shippensburg University baseball team, as the Raiders were not able to overcome a barrage of West Chester hits, falling 16-2.
Simon Beloff was the lone Raider with multiple hits in the nightcap. His 2-for-3 performance included a double down the right-field line in the fourth inning and a run scored. Eric Herman was 1-for-4 and scored the game’s first run after doubling to lead off the contest.
SU employed four pitchers in the contest: senior Jimmy Miller, Josh Scott, R.J. Grant and Ted Williams. Miller was credited with the loss; he lasted just 2.2 innings. Grant threw two shutout innings of relief, striking out two.
The Golden Rams started the offensive barrage early and often. The team tallied 19 hits in the game, pushing its doubleheader total to 28.
The Raiders play host to Lock Haven today at 3 p.m. SU will be off for a week before continuing play against non-league opponent Wilmington University at 3 p.m., March 17, from Fairchild Field.
