Emory Pulls Away Late, Hands Case Western Reserve First UAA Loss

SANFORD, Fla. – The Case Western Reserve University baseball team whittled an early five-run Emory University (Ga.) lead down to just one, but a four-run ninth inning foiled the Spartans' hopes of a comeback in a 9-4 loss on day two of the 2012 University Athletic Association Championship at Sanford Memorial Stadium.

The Spartans fall to 7-3 overall and 1-1 in the UAA, while defending conference champion Emory improves to 9-6 overall and 2-0 in the Association.

Emory jumped out to a 5-0 advantage after plating a pair of runs in the first inning and three more in third.

In the home half of the fourth, Case cut the Eagle advantage to three with a pair of runs. Senior designated hitterSam Alexander (Alexandria, Va./T.C.Williams) laced a one-out single to left field that was followed by a double off the bat of junior first baseman Brett Ossola (Potomac, Md./Bullis School). Senior catcher Peter Zak (Brookline, Mass./Brookline) loaded the bases with a walk. A passed ball then scored Alexander before sophomore outfielderJordan Dague (Barberton, Ohio/Barberton) manufactured a run with a sacrifice fly to left that plated Ossola.

Not done yet, the Spartans retired Emory in the top of the fifth and carried that momentum into the bottom of the frame. Junior shortstop Matt Keen (Tallmadge, Ohio/Tallmadge) got aboard via an infield single and came around to score on junior centerfielder Paul Pakan's second homerun of the spring, slicing the Eagle lead to just one, at 5-4.

However, the Eagles put the game out of reach in the top of the ninth, scoring four runs aided by a Case error.

For the game, Alexander was 2-for-4, raising his season average to .351.

On the mound, Spartan junior lefthander Jarrett Gish (Jupiter, Fla./Suncoast) suffered the loss and falls to 1-1 after lasting just 2.2 innings. Senior lefty A.J. Boshinski (Alpharetta, Ga./St. Pius X) came on in relief and logged the next seven outs not allowing a hit or run while striking out three and issuing just one walk.

Sophomore Josh Suvak (Independence, Ohio/Independence) threw two innings of shutout work before freshman righthander Edward Abramson (Maitland, Fla./Winter Park) was perfect in the eighth. A pair of sophomores in righthander Jose Vega (Strongsville, Ohio/Padua Franciscan) and lefthander Ray Kelly (Rochester, N.Y./Aquinas Institute) worked the ninth.

Case will look to get back on the winning track when it takes on Washington University-St. Louis (Mo.) tomorrow during day three of the UAA Championship. First pitch is scheduled for 11:00 a.m.

The birdie zipped past his cheek almost missing it and hitting the ground just nearly past the foul boundary; another point for the opposing team! The Badminton Club met once again for its usual open/recreational session on Saturday afternoon. Students, community members, and Oberlin staff met and sparred in a number of exciting singles and doubles matches. The current and future captain also discussed the possibility of adding more structure to future badminton sessions, possibly testing a more team-oriented format on another weekday. We hope to have at least one more session before the beginning of Spring Break.

This week, tumbling club came together for its first cypher after practice onTuesday. (Our cyphers, for those unfamiliar with the concept, are celebratory jamcircles that provide an opportunity for participants to show off their best moves in
an uncompetitive but still highly charged atmosphere; we circle up and tumble inor across the middle of the group with loud music and cheers spurring us on. Thisfirst cypher included a wide range of moves - anything from cartwheels and forwardrolls to complex tricking sequences.) We hope to make the cyphers a monthlytradition that will hopefully generate interest in the club and also integrate new members in the community. In that same vein, the focus of this week's Stevie club meal was on finalizing semester plans to get more into the public eye, and setting up special practices for members to train at if they have time during the week.

Women’s Ultimate

This weekend the Manti ventured to Nashville, TN, to play Music City Mash-Up, a tournament sponsored by Without Limits, a women's ultimate development organization.  Hosted by Vanderbilt University, Music City Mash-Up was attended by 28 women's college teams and featured skills clinics Saturday afternoon taught by some of the country's best female players and coaches.  The Manti learned a lot this weekend, placing 7th out of 8 in the DIII competition while facing teams like Georgia Tech and Oklahoma University that we don't usually see in the regular season.  The team's focus was on building fundamentals and giving younger members playing time so we can continue to build depth and strength throughout the rest of the year.  Overall, the Manti had a great time running around in the sun and got their spring season off to a great start!
