Britons Drop DH At Adrian

ADRIAN, Mich. – Albion College managed nine hits in 5-1 and 6-1 losses against Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association rival Adrian College.

Game One

Starting pitcher Nate Brubaker kept Adrian from a big inning, scattering three runs over 4.2 innings. The key to Brubaker's success was limiting damage as the Bulldogs stranded 10 runners over the first four innings.

Jack Wyman collected a pair of singles. In fact, he followed Ben Crawford with a hit as the Britons had two runners on base with one out in the fifth. The Britons were unable to hit the ball out of the infield from there and failed to score.

Albion scored its run in the seventh. Spencer Bonofiglio led off with a double down the left field line. Andrew Bauer came on as a pinch runner and he scored on Chase Carpenter's two-out single.

Game Two

Justin Dennis led off the sixth inning with a single. He stole second, advanced to third on a balk and scored when Kyle Kowal grounded to first base.
