Game One Boxscore
Game Two Boxscore

Eastlake, OH – Mansfield pounded out 22 hits in the opener and held off a seventh inning rally in the nightcap to sweep Lake Erie 19-4, 4-3 in a non-conference baseball doubleheader Tuesday afternoon.

In the opener the Mountaineers pounded out 22-hits and scored in every inning except the seventh to snap a four-game losing streak. It was the most runs scored by a Mountaineer team since a 22-7 win over Clarion in 2006 and the most hits in a game since a 23-hit performance in a 25-8 win over Bloomsburg in 2000.

Cody Stinger hit a two-run home run in the first inning and Chris Miller added two-run home run in the fourth inning. Stinger went 4-5 with a double, home run and two RBI. Miller was 3-5 with a double, home run and five RBI while Chris Coleman went 4-6 with a double and three RBI. Drew Bair was 2-3 with a double and three RBI.

Andy Young went the first four innings to improve to 2-0 on the season. Young got relief from Shane Ryan and Zach Ullrich.

In the nightcap, Mansfield scored twice in the first inning on a pair of Lake Erie errors and Chris Miller’s RBI and took a 4-0 lead into the bottom of the seventh. But Lake Erie rallied with two outs on a three-run home run by Ryan Rua to pull to 4-3. Mansfield reliever Joe Will, who came in the fifth inning for starter Jordan Garcia, ended the threat by striking out the final batter.

Mansfield was outhit in the game 8-6 but left just four runners on base to Lake Erie’s seven.

Garcia, a freshman, scattered five hits and struck out one while walking none over four innings to improve to 2-1 on the season. Will stuck out four over three innings. Kevin Miller went 2-4 to lead the offense.

Mansfield improves to 12-22 overall and host Bloomsburg in a PSAC East doubleheader on Friday.
