DOVER, Del. : The Delaware State University baseball team swept the University of Maryland Eastern Shore in their double header on Saturday. It came one day after the Hawks were able to take two games from the Hornets.
In the opener, DSU jumped out to the early lead in the first, plating 6 runs. The Hornets knocked the Hawks starting pitcher Philip Berry out halfway through the first, handcuff the bullpen light UMES the rest of the way. DSU would put this one away in the second inning after they opened up a 10-0 lead. UMES would add a few runs late, but the deficit was too much as DSU took the opener 16-6.
In the night cap, the Hawks would be the first on the board as they scored four runs in the bottom of the third inning. The Hornets would come right back though, and tie the game in the fourth. Then it was UMES's turn, as they would tack on three runs to build a 7-4 lead as both teams showed they weren't going to back down. The Hornets pulled away in the fifth though as they plated 9 runs, taking the lead for good. DSU would go on to take the second game 15-8.
