Concord nine takes twinbill from Wheeling, Rams fall at Shawnee

WHEELING — The Concord University baseball team received dominant pitching performances from seniors Ryan Weatherholtz and Tyler Coyle en route to a series-opening doubleheader sweep of Wheeling Jesuit University Saturday afternoon.

Concord downed the Cardinals 5-0 in game one and 6-1 in the nightcap. The wins improve the Mountain Lions' record to 23-11 overall and 20-8 Mountain East Conference competition. WJU drops to 13-17 on the year and 13-13 in league games with the losses.

Weatherholtz (4-4) and Coyle (4-2) provided Concord with the starting rotation's fifth and sixth consecutive complete games Saturday.

Weatherholtz tossed a five-hit shutout, his second of the season, in the opener while Coyle, the reigning MEC Pitcher of the Week, allowed just one run on eight hits over seven innings in the game two win.

Offensively, Concord was paced on the day by senior outfielder Bret Blevins, who went 5-for-7 with two runs, three RBI and two stolen bases.

Concord goes for the four-game sweep of Wheeling Jesuit with a doubleheader Sunday. First pitch of game one is slated for 1:00 p.m.

Russell-Myers took his fourth-straight losing decision (4-4), allowing nine runs on 11 hits. He struck out six on the day.

The Bears' Wisner Mason earned the win to improve to 8-1 on the year.

The teams face off once again on Sunday, with the doubleheader beginning at noon.
