Benedictine University's baseball team dropped a home Northern Athletics Conference home doubleheader to Edgewood College on Saturday at The Sports Complex. The Eagles (11-16, 5-9 NAC) lost by scores of 3-2 and 12-1. Senior George Shimko lost a brilliant game one pitcher's duel. Shimko went the complete nine innings, giving up the three earned runs and seven hits. He struck out five and walked just one. Benedictine's number seven and eight batters - Kevin Stockman and Jason Alice - each went 2-for-4 with a run batted in. Kyle Bergman had Benedictine's lone extra-base hit with a double. In game two, the wheels came off of the proverbial wagon as a combination of BU's young pitching staff and hot Edgewood bats resulted in the lopsided win for the visitors. EC collected 18 hits in the seven-inning game. Conversely, Benedictibne was held to two hits by Edgewood's Nathan Marlowe.
