Bethany Defeated by LaRoche in Non-Conference Match-up
April 3 - PITTSBURGH, Pa. – A six-run fourth inning was the big outburst that propelled LaRoche to a 12-1 victory over the Bethany College baseball team Thursday afternoon in a non-league tilt.
The Redhawks scored three runs in the first and another in the second before the six-run surge in the fourth to take control of the game. The Bison scored their run in the sixth inning when junior SS Juls Leto (McKees Rocks, Pa./OLSH) doubled and scored on a single by sophomore Tanner Werkmann (Germantown, Md./Poolesville). Bethany had just five hits in the game, with Leto’s being the lone extra-base hit.
Taking the loss for Bethany on the mound was freshman Ryan Bisi (Latrobe, Pa./Greater Latrobe), who went three and a third innings in his first collegiate start.
The Bison will be back on the field this weekend when they host Thomas More in a PAC series. The teams will play a doubleheader Saturday at 1 p.m. before completing the set Sunday at noon.
