Baseball Upended By Washington & Jefferson
04/11/2006

FROSTBURG, Md. — The Frostburg State baseball team dropped a hard-fought 2-1 ballgame to Washington & Jefferson Tuesday afternoon at Bob Wells Field.

The Bobcats fall to 17-9 overall on the season while the Presidents improved to 15-5.

After W&J opened the game with back-to-back singles, Chris Varacallo singled home Warren Stowe as the visitors took a 1-0 lead. Sophomore starter John Micklus (La Plata, Md./McDonough) settled down after that, allowing just one base runner until the sixth inning.

In the top of the sixth, Matt Pellis led off the inning with a single and later scored on a Shaun Pfeil RBI single as Washington & Jefferson assumed a 2-0 lead.

FSU threatened in the bottom of the eighth as junior Chris Jones (Baltimore, Md./Towson) singled and advanced to third on a double by senior Kyle Mahan (Woodbridge, Va./Potomac). Jones then scored and Mahan advanced to third on a wild pitch narrowing the gap to 2-1. The W&J pitcher got out of the jam with a ground out to the second baseman.

Neither team scored in the ninth as the game ended 2-1.

Micklus suffered the loss, evening his record to 3-3. He lasted 7.0 innings allowing one earned run on five hits while striking out five. Jones led FSU going 3-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base.

FSU returns to action on Saturday, April 15 when it hosts Lake Erie for a doubleheader at 1:00 pm.
