Maryland Eastern Shore baseball fell twice Friday (Apr. 6) as the Coppin State pitching staff held the Hawks to just one run over 16 innings. The result was a sweep by the Eagles, who took both games by 3-1 and 3-0 scores, respectively. The Shore (6-25, 4-8 MEAC) did receive fine pitching performances from their staff. Seniors Evan Bertone (Douglas, Massachusetts) and Toby Hoskins (North East, Maryland) each hurled five innings in their starts but were handed tough losses. Sophomore Andre Bell (Detroit, Michigan) and senior Chris Melrath (Rising Sun, Maryland) offered up scoreless relief appearances. Coppin State (11-15-1, 10-2 MEAC) surrendered just nine hits in the doubleheader as they take the season series 5-1 over the Hawks.
