GRANVILLE-- A four-run fourth and a five-run fifth powered Denison to a 13-7 victory over 25th ranked Baldwin Wallace University on Thursday afternoon at Big Red Field.

Denison first-year starting pitcher Taylor Perrett got the start and pitched six innings allowing three runs on six hits. 

Leading 2-1 heading into the bottom of the fourth, Max Lahn drew a seven-pitch walk to start the inning. Nick Pettigrew followed with a single to left field, setting the table forTanner Johnson who blasted a two-run double to the wall in left.  With two outs, Sam Frazen lifted a ball in foul territory that looked like it would end the inning.  Yellow Jacket pitcher Brandon Wysong dropped the foul ball, giving Frazen new life.  The senior catcher delivered with a double to left, scoring Johnson with the third run of the inning.  Brian McAuliffe followed with a first-pitch double to left, scoring Frazen. That sent Denison into the fifth with a 6-1 lead.

In the sixth, Jack Blanchard led off with a base hit through the left side of the infield.  Lahn was hit by the first pitch he saw from reliever Spencer Aukerman and Pettigrew loaded the bases with a walk.  Sophomore left fielder Vince Walker delivered an RBI single through the left side, scoring Blanchard while keeping the bases loaded for Johnson.  The senior stepped to the plate a perfect 4-for-4 this season with the bases loaded and he promptly made it 5-for-5 with a double to the gap in left-center, scoring Pettigrew and Lahn.    

BW went back to the bullpen, summoning Spencer Berg and on his first pitch, Grady Paine drove a ball off the wall in right field for a two-run double giving the Big Red an 11-1 lead after five.

The Yellow Jackets did not go quietly scoring two runs in the sixth, seventh and eighth innings but two more insurance runs from the Big Red set the final at 13-7.

Perrett improved to 4-1 on the year while BW starter Max Adams dropped to 1-1.  Johnson was 3-for-5 with five RBIs, three runs scored and a walk.  Walker was 3-for-4 with two RBIs, one run scored and a walk.  McAuliffe and Paine also finished with two RBIs for Denison.  DU relievers Jack Arnstein, Sean Bonner and Mikey Rivera combined to pitch the final three innings for the Big Red.

Baldwin Wallace (15-7) was led by Jacob Bonner (2-for-5, 2 RBIs) and Alex Marcum (2-for-3, 1 RBI).

With the win, Denison improves to 2-2 on the year against nationally ranked opponents and 12-6 overall.  The Big Red travels to Bulter, Pennsylvania on Sunday (April 8) for a North Coast Athletic Conference doubleheader against Allegheny College.  The first pitch of game one is scheduled for 4 p.m.
