Metro roundup: Rose men win seventh straight HCAC track title




Engineers sweep — At Lexington, Ky., Rose-Hulman completed a three-game series sweep of host Transylvania with 16-7 and 5-0 victories Saturday afternoon.

Rose clinched a winning season and needs just one more win in next weekend's three-game series at Defiance to secure a bid to the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference tournament May 8-10.

In the opener, Rose-Hulman scored four runs in the second, five in the fourth and five in the eighth to score 16 runs and pound out 18 hits. Junior Josh Hoeing slapped four hits, including a double, with three runs batted in and two runs scored to pace the offensive attack.

Sophomore Kody Alayon blasted a home run and a double with two runs scored and one RBI. Freshman Zach Trusk added three singles and scored three times.

Other key offensive contributors included senior Andrew Benitez with two singles, three RBIs and one run scored; sophomore Caleb Kissel with two singles and two RBIs; and sophomore Patrick Klima with two singles, two RBIs and two runs scored.

Sophomore Karson Nixon tossed the first six innings to pick up the victory and junior John Krasich pitched three scoreless innings in relief to notch the save.

In the nightcap, sophomore pitcher Andrew Stull was the story, shutting out the Pioneers for 7 2/3 innings. He scattered six hits and allowed no runs with seven strikeouts to move to 3-4 for the season.

Senior Michael Bush and sophomore Alec McNally pitched the remainder of the eighth and ninth innings to secure the shutout for the Engineers.

Senior Hank Akard hammered a home run and had three RBIs, while Alayon had three hits and scored twice to lead the Game 2 offense. Benitez contributed two singles to the 11-hit performance.

Rose (21-13 overall, 14-8 HCAC) will travel to Washington (St. Louis) University for non-conference action Wednesday afternoon. Transylvania dropped to 16-20 and 10-11 respectively.
