Baseball Sweeps Doubleheader with Sussex County

With a sweep of Sussex County CC in a Sunday doubleheader, the Dukes made it four straight with wins of 14-2 and 4-0.  Dalton Mayberry (2-0) recorded the win in the first part of the two-game set and Joe Zanghi (1-1) went the distance in game 2, allowing only one hit.

In game 2, Zanghi pitched a complete game shutout with 9 strikeouts.  Jared Corniell, the Dukes' DH for the second game, led the way with a 2 for 3 performance including three big RBIs on a double and a triple.  Carr, Shoelkopf, and Ocasio each scored a run.

  The Dukes will be back on the diamond on Tuesday when they host Monroe College in a single 9-inning game between the two colleges.  The first pitch will be thrown at 3:30PM.
