DU rebounds with sweep of Bishops

Connor Murphy
Connor Murphy allowed 3 hits in his complete game win in game 1.

After dropping a pair to Ohio Wesleyan on Saturday, the Big Red responded with a crucial Sunday sweep over the Battling Bishops as they prevailed 6-1, and 17-3.  With the series split, Denison remains in first-place in the North Coast Athletic Conference West Division with an 8-4 record.  Ohio Wesleyan drops to 3-5 in divisional play.

In game one, Denison got an exceptional pitching performance from Connor Murphy.  The junior right hander pitched all seven innings, scattering three hits and allowing just one run while striking out three.  OWU's lone run came in the fourth inning when Ben Steele grounded into a double play, scoring Sean Vollenweider.

Denison, meanwhile, took control early with a three-run first inning powered by a Charlie Apfelbach RBI single, an Andrew Touhy RBI single and a bases loaded walk that was drawn by catcher, Lowell Hall.  Apfelbach would plate Denison's fourth run in the second inning with an RBI double to right.  In the fourth, Touhy would add an RBI single and Ryan Loehnert would stroke a double to right, scoring Ryan Mulligan.

Touhy led DU in the opener, going 3-for-4 with two RBIs.  Apfelbach was 2-for-4 while driving in a pair.  The loss went to OWU starter Greg Hock who allowed four runs in 3.0 innings pitched.

In the series finale, Denison struck early with a five-run first inning.  An 8-run ninth inning with the game already out of hand would set the final at 17-3.

The star at the plate for DU was Kyle Clemmenson who went 5-for-6 with four runs scored and five RBIs.  The five-hits were a career-high for the senior.  Clemmenson is the first Denison player to log a five-hit game since 2010.  This is the ninth five-hit game by a DU player since 2000.

The Big Red pounded out 23 hits in the game.  Aside from Clemmenson, Apfelbach was 3-for-5 with one RBI and two runs scored.  He also extended his hitting streak to 13 games.  That marks the longest hitting streak by a member of the Big Red since Park Smith hit in 14 consecutive games in the 2009 season.

Other three-hit performers for Denison were Nick Marsit (3-for-5, 2 RBIs), and Mulligan (3-for-5, 1 RBI).  Danny Kraus got the start and pitched three innings.  He did not surrender a hit, but the Bishops were able to draw five walks and score one run, that was not earned.  Ian Walsh entered the game in the fourth inning and worked the final six innings to earn his third victory of the season.  Walsh allowed four hits and one earned run while striking out four.

The loss went to OWU starter Blake Adkins.  Shortstop Zach Bott led the Batting Bishops, going 2-for-4 with one run scored.

Denison will return to action on Wednesday (April 17) with a non-conference game at Marietta College.
