FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – The Stevenson baseball team was swept in its first CAC doubleheader of the season at Mary Washington Saturday, dropping a pair of 12-3 and 14-2 decisions at Earl Dickinson Stadium.
The losses were the seventh and eighth-straight for the Mustangs (0-8, 0-3 CAC) this season who are also looking for their first conference win.
In the first game, the Eagles got to Stevenson senior Brandon Krochune (Baltimore/Digital Harbor) for three runs in the first inning before adding a fourth run in the bottom of the fourth to take a 4-0 advantage.
The Mustangs rallied with three runs in the top of the fifth to cut the lead to one, highlighted by an RBI single from sophomore Mitch Berman (Hampstead/North Carroll) and a sacrifice fly from freshman Thomas Goulian (Kinnelon, N.J./Kinnelon).
Sophomore Cody Schuchman (Baltimore/Calvert Hall) also scored on a Mary Washington error.
However, that would be as close as Stevenson would get as Mary Washington (8-0, 3-0 CAC) answered with two runs in the bottom of the fifth and six in the sixth to provide the final margin.
Beattie Southerland, Eric Rehbein and Ben Sisk each had two RBIs for the Eagles while Southerland totaled three hits, including two RBI doubles.
Meanwhile, four different Mustangs had one hit each with Berman and Goulian each picking up RBIs.
In the second game, Mary Washington put the game away early with an eight-run second inning to extend its lead to 9-0. The Eagles scored eight runs on eight hits, including six singles with two each from Jackson Clement and Jeff Rezach. Clement finished the game 3-for-3 with an RBI and four runs scored.
Of Mary Washington's 11 hits, only two went for extra bases.
The Mustangs make their home debut at Yankee Stadium Field in Aberdeen on Sunday when they host a non-conference contest with Gettysburg. First pitch is at 2:00 p.m.
