          It was a beautiful day for baseball at Progressive Field, home of the Cleveland Indians. Unfortunately, the Spartans had their six-game winning streak snapped at the hands of the No. 7 ranked College of Wooster on senior day. The College of Wooster scored 11 runs in the first four innings en route to defeating Case Western Reserve University by a score of 13-5

          The Scots scored eight runs before the Spartans could get their first hit off of Wooster starter Justin McDowell. The Spartans finally got on the board in the bottom of the fourth, with a two-run single by senior right fielder Phil Keefe. In the sixth, the Spartans loaded the bases with one out on singles by sophomore left fielder Sam Alexander, junior catcher Steve Bills, and junior designated hitter Cory Pecoraro. Bills drove in a run with a single in the seventh. Sophomore Jackson Stone hit a pinch-hit RBI double in the ninth for the Spartans' final run.

          Freshman first baseman Brett Ossola went 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored. Alexander, Bills, Keefe, and Pecoraro each had two hits.

          Junior Zach Fry took the loss (7-3), giving up five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks, striking out three. Sophomores Bradley Potter and Taylor Lorenz combined to shut down the Wooster offense over the last four innings, combining to give up just two runs over that span. Potter struck out four in three innings.
