Game 2 Box Score

HAMPTON, Va. -- The Apprentice School saw its seven-game winning streak come to an end as visiting Tufts University swept a Saturday doubleheader 15-1 and 4-3 at War Memorial Stadium. Tufts improves to 6-3, while the Builders fell to 18-9.

In the opener, the Jumbos scored four runs in the fourth, fifth and seventh innings en route to the 15-1 win. Senior pitcher Zak Smotherman (Westborough, MA) limited Apprentice School to just four hits, and the hosts were doomed by six errors.

Tufts had 14 hits in the opener, including three apiece by senior SS Greg Chertok (New City, NY), junior 2B Brian Casey (Milford, MA) and junior 1B Bryan McDavitt (Holden, MA). Chertok, Casey and freshman DH Patrick Kennedy (Hurst, TX) each scored three times. McDavitt and junior CF Jim O'Leary (North Easton, MA) had three RBIs each. Smotherman struck out 11 on the hill.

The lone Apprentice run scored as Kyle Center started the fifth with a single and advanced to second on an Eric Polk single. Both advanced a base as Bryce Beale drew a walk and Center scored on a walk to JD Drewry.

The nightcap saw the Jumbos score a pair of runs in the fourth and sixth innings to take a 4-0 lead. McDavitt (2 for 4) singled and scored in the fourth, then double in a run and scored in the sixth. O'Leary (2 for 4) also scored twice for Tufts.

Apprentice School made a run in the seventh as Polk started with a walk and scored on a Ben Scott double to cut the deficit to 4-1. After a ground out, Drewry singled in Josh Tanner who pinch-ran for Scott to make it 4-2. Bobby Quesenberry singled Drewry to third and following a walk, Ryan Scott's groundout scored Drewry for a 4-3 Tufts advantage. Tufts coach John Casey summoned senior lefty Erik Johanson (Wynnewood, PA) from the bullpen and he recorded the final two outs. Starter Adam Telian (Stoughton, MA) got the win, allowing five hits and two runs in six innings.

Cato Dixon was 2 for 4 and Ben Scott was 2- or 3 for the Builders in game two.

Tufts finishes its spring break trip with two games at Virginia Wesleyan on Sunday. Apprentice School next takes on Southern Virginia University on Friday in a 1 p.m. doubleheader at War Memorial Stadium.
