single-season saves record holder
MEDFORD -- Tufts University pitching allowed
Middlebury College a total of just four hits in two seven-inning
games on Sunday as the Jumbos swept a doubleheader against the
Panthers by 3-1 and 5-1 scores.
Tufts junior starter Derek Miller (Whitman, MA)
allowed just two hits and no earned runs during six innings in
game one. Sophomore closer Chris DeGoti (Miami, FL) broke the
school record with his ninth save of the season, surpassing the
eight recorded by Jeff Bloom in 1988. He had broken the team's
career record with his 13th at Springfield yesterday. Brian Shapiro
accumulated 12 saves from 2002-05.
In game two Sunday, sophomore Dave
Ryan (Trumbull, CT) was perfect through 4.1 innings and finished
with six innings allowing one hit and no runs.
The Jumbos, who won the NESCAC East Division pennant
and will host the conference tournament next weekend, tied the
school record for wins in a season as they improved to 27-5.
Middlebury ended its year with a 10-17 mark.
Middlebury freshman pitcher Tyler Buckingham
(Montclair, NJ) matched Miller with zeros on the scoreboard through
four innings in game one. He allowed just one hit and no runs before
he was lifted after five. The Panthers took a 1-0 lead with an
unearned run in the fifth. Freshman Thomas Rafferty (Chicago, IL)
reached on a fielder's choice and scored after a wild pitch and a
Tufts throwing error.
Tufts got to the Panther relievers in the sixth,
scoring three times. Nate Bankoff (Lynnfield, MA) and Alex
Perry (Danvers, MA), two of six Jumbos playing on Seniors Day at
Huskins Field, had RBI singles in the inning.
Miller, who improved to 3-0, gave up just two
singles in the second and fifth innings.
Ryan (4-1) didn't allow a Middlebury base runner in
game two until freshman DH Joseph Conway (Hummelstown, PA) singled
with one out in the fifth. That was the only hit Ryan allowed. The
Jumbos led 4-0 by that point. Junior RF Chase Rose (Scottsdale,
AZ) singled up the middle and eventually scored on a wild pitch
in the second. Tufts scored three times in the third, when sophomore
3B Sam Sager (Cranston, RI) knocked in a run with a single
and eventually scored.
Junior CF David Orlowitz (Wakefield, MA) led
off the bottom of the sixth with a single through the left side and
eventually scored on a wild pitch, one of four thrown by Panther
pitchers in the game. Middlebury scored its lone run in the top of
the seventh on a walk by junior LF Donald McKillop (Poway, CA), a
double by senior CF Erich Enns (Lansdale, PA), and an RBI ground out
by pinch hitter Nick Angstman (Williston, VT).
Sophomore Dirk vanDuym (Madison, WI) pitched 2.1
innings of no-hit relief for the Panthers in the nightcap.
Tufts plays a make-up game at Bentley on Tuesday,
when they will try to set a new mark for wins.
