Baseball ‘Cats drops doubleheader to Bluefield as losing streak reaches 13

BLUEFIELD — The West Virginia Wesleyan College Bobcats battled against Bluefield State University in a mid-week doubleheader on Wednesday, dropping both games as they fell 8-6 in game one and 12-0 in game two.

In game one, the Bobcats jumped out to a hot start in the top of the first by scoring six runs on getting a pair of two singles from Ryan Drag and Luke Burner, an RBI from Cole Shearer, and a Jack Tilton score on a wild pitch.

From there on out, Bluefield started to inch its way back into the game up until the bottom of the fourth when Tahir Meulens hit a three-run homerun to give the Blues a 7-6 lead.

Bluefield later added one more insurance run to bolster its lead to two and make it 8-6.

Wesleyan had no answers as they were only able to get one hit after its amazing first inning and dropped the first game of the doubleheader 8-6.

Drake Long got the loss for the Bobcats and Braeden Major got the win.

Losing game one in that fashion took the life out of Wesleyan in game two as they were only able to accumulate one hit off a Drag single.

Bluefield State kept the bats hot as they scored 12 runs off 16 hits and took game two of the doubleheader to complete the season sweep.

Aaron Bradley was the losing pitcher and Tahraun Hammond got the win for Bluefield.

The Bobcats look to get season win number 11 against Glenville State University as they face off in a doubleheader on Saturday, Apr. 27 at 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. in Glenville.
