Krasnowiecki pitched his second straight shutout, and sophomore
Neumann allowed just one run in a complete game victory as the
Central Connecticut baseball team swept Quinnipiac on Saturday, 4-0
and 6-1. With the victories the Blue Devils are now 22-17-1
overall and 14-9 in Northeast Conference play.
Krasnowiecki followed up last week's one-hit shutout win over Fairleigh Dickinson with a three-hit shutout on Saturday in a 4-0 win over the Bobcats. He struck out six batters and walked three to improve his record to 4-3 on the season. He has won three straight decisions and has pitched three shutouts in his last six starts. His earned run averaged dropped to 3.01 on Saturday.
In the win Krasnowiecki allowed only two runners past second base, but neither could score. In the first inning he struck out the first batter and after a walk, stolen base and an error there was a man on third with one out. He struck out the final two batters to get out of the inning. He faced more than four batters in an inning just once, and did not allow a hit over the final nine batters in the game.
Offensively the Blue Devils had 10 hits, including the first home run of the season from junior Mitch Wells. Wells had five hits in Friday's big 26-3 win, and followed that up with three more in game one on Saturday. Senior Pat Epps also added three hits and added an RBI. Freshman Dylan DelaCruz and senior Sean Miller-Jones each added an RBI in the game one win.
In the second game it was Neumann's turn to baffle the Bobcat hitters. He allowed just five hits and struck out five while allowing one earned run to improve to 5-1 on the season. He was perfect through 4.2 innings before allowing a pair of hits in the fifth. Quinnipiac's lone run came with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning. Neumann retired the side in order and faced only three batters in the first, second, third, fourth and sixth innings.
Offensively Miller-Jones drove in two more runs and had a pair of hits, including a double. He has nine RBI in the first three games of the series. Wells, Epps, freshman J.P Sportman and junior Danny Hickey also drove in runs in the victory. Junior Jake Matuszak and DelaCruz each had two hits. Matuszak scored twice.
The Blue Devils and Bobcats will finish the weekend series with a single game on Sunday beginning at 1 p.m.
