Spartan Offense Continues to Boom as York Rolls Past Eastern
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – The York College baseball squad rolled to their fourth straight win as the Spartans clubbed their way past Eastern University, 20-0, on Monday afternoon in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The Spartans improve to 4-2 overall while the Eagles start their season 0-1.
The Spartans banged out 19 hits in the game as they scored 20 runs for the second straight contest. The Spartans tallied 12 runs in the first three innings to put the game away early.
The Spartans early offensive output would be more than enough for Spartan starter Andy Rosenzweig (Glen Rock, Pa./Susquehannock) as the sophomore scattered three hits in his six innings of work. Rosenzweig, who improved to 1-1 with the win, struck out one and did not walk a batter in a very impressive start. Brandon Ullom (South Plainfield, N.J./South Plainfield) relieved Rosenzweig and tossed two innings, allowing just one hit as he struck out four for the Green and White. Junior Jeff Benchich (Salt Point, N.Y./Millbrook) tossed the final inning for York, allowing one hit with one strikeout.
Paul Sinclair suffered the loss for Eastern as he tossed 2.1 innings, allowing 12 runs, 10 earned, on seven hits with four walks and a pair of strikeouts. He falls to 0-1 with the setback.
