Brandeis baseball drops game to WPI among postponements

March 23, 2018

The Brandeis men’s baseball team lost a tense nail-biter to Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) March 15, with a score of 12-9, dropping the Judges’ record to 1-6 for the season. After trailing by four runs heading in to the ninth inning, the Judges scored five runs to take the lead 9-8. However, a WPI first-baseman hit a walk-off home to end the game.

Rookie starters Mike Khoury ’21, Dan Frey ’21 and Isaac Fossas ’21 continued to drive the Judges’ offense, tallying two hits each. Khoury knocked a home run on the first ball he was pitched in the first inning. On the mound, Greg Tobin ’20 got off to a hot start as he struck out eight batters in the first three innings.

Pitchers Mason Newman ’21, Bradley Bousquet ’18, Kyle Shedden ’20 and Daniel Schupper ’19 all made appearances on the mound, totaling six strikeouts in four combined innings. The Brandeis pitchers had their hands full throughout the game as the WPI offense heated up, knocking in four home runs during the game.

The baseball team had a series of postponed games the week after the WPI loss. They are scheduled to play a make-up game against Trinity College in Connecticut on March 23, delayed from a scheduled home game against the team on Thursday, March 22. The postponements will make for a heavy April schedule for the Judges.
