CHESTERTOWN, Md. - The Hood College baseball team spoiled the perfect start to Washington College's season with a 5-2 victory in non-conference play. 

The Shoremen had won their first 14 games of the season. 

Inside the Box Score

How it Happened

  • Nathan Kessler led off the game with a single, stole second and moved to third on a wild pitch. He scored on a base hit by Wenner for a 1-0 lead. 
  • Hood scored twice in the second inning. Trent Copenhaver singled and Sawyer followed with a double. After DeProspero drove in Copenhaver with a groundout, Sawyer came home on a passed ball for a 3-0 lead.
