In their last game in the month of April, the Quinnipiac Bobcats defeated the Manhattan Jaspers 11-1 in a Saturday afternoon affair at the Quinnipiac Baseball Field in Hamden, CT.

Two right-handed pitchers got the start for their respective teams, as Kevin Seitter threw seven innings of one-run ball for the Bobcats, to go along with four hits, three walks and three strikeouts. Opposite Seitter, graduate student Jordan Warecke lasted just three innings for the Jaspers as he surrendered six runs (three earned), on nine hits while striking out two.

After a scoreless top of the first, the Bobcat’s offense got to work, as all nine men stepped up to the plate in a four-run inning. Danny Melnick, Ian Ostberg, Keegan O’Connor and Michael Kohn all drove in runs to give Quinnipiac an early cushion.

Kohn tallied his second RBI of the game in the third inning with a single to right field. Jared Zimbardo would follow up with an RBI groundout, and Quinnipiac had a 6-0 lead after three innings of play.

Just an inning later, Kohn put the icing on the cake as he crushed a three-run home run, his seventh of the year, to right field, and the Bobcats would lead 9-0 after four innings. Kohn finished the afternoon with three hits and five RBIs.

The Jaspers plated their only run of the day in the sixth inning, as junior Pete Durocher singled to right field to cut the Bobcat’s lead to 9-1.

Quinnipiac added a run in the seventh and the eighth inning to pad their lead to 11-1. Derek Goldrick pitched the final two innings for the Bobcats allowing one hit and two walks while striking out one batter.

The Bobcats will look to win their fourth game in a row and complete the weekend series sweep of the Jaspers on Sunday, May 1, as the first pitch is scheduled for 1 pm.
