PAC baseball: W&J wins regular-season title, to host conference tournament

  • May 4, 2013

Washington & Jefferson secured its second-straight Presidents’ Athletic Conference regular-season championship Saturday with a doubleheader sweep of Westminster at Ross Memorial Park.

The title means W&J (18-6, 26-11) will host the PAC tournament that begins Thursday. The top-seeded Presidents will face fourth-seeded Saint Vincent, and No. 2 Thiel will take on No. 3 Thomas More (game times to be determined).

Eddie Nogay threw a three-hit complete-game shutout as W&J beat Westminster 9-0 in the opener. The Presidents then rolled to a 13-2 triumph during the nightcap. Nogay improved his record to 9-1. He struck out four and posted his third shutout of the season (fifth career) to tie Sam Mann’s single-season school record set in 2005.

W&J batted around, scoring five runs on five hits, in the third inning.

The Presidents’ Tyler Dean pitched a complete game and struck out six in the second game.

• J. Jay Pasket pitched a six-hitter, and Clay Roman scored three runs, as Waynesburg defeated host Grove City 7-2 in the opening game of a PAC doubleheader.

Grove City won the second game, 3-0.

Paskert walked four and struck out seven to improve his record to 7-6.

Nick Berdine, who doubled, Bobby Hartman and Ben Shorthouse each drove in two runs for Waynesburg (11-13, 20-18).

Zach Butler threw a seven-hit shutout in the nightcap for Grove City (5-17, 6-22).
