WOOSTER, Ohio—Ninth-ranked Denison suffered back-to-back losses for the first time all season as No. 15 Wooster held on to first place in the North Coast Athletic Conference with a 16-9 win in game one and a 6-5 victory in game two.

In game one, Denison scored two runs in the first, two in the second and one in the third on a solo home run by Brian McAuliffe. The Fighting Scots got to Denison starter Danny Brackman in the third, plating six runs on four hits.  John troll entered in the third with two outs and runners on second and third.  The sixth run of the frame scored on a wild pitch before Troll retired Ben Gbur on a groundout to shortstop.

Trailing 8-5 in the fifth, Grady Paine blasted a home run to right field and Daniel Spencer scored on a wild pitch to make it an 8-7 game heading to the sixth.

Wooster blew the game wide open with eight runs in the sixth off eight hits and two walks by Big Red pitching.

Denison had 14 hits in game one but stranded 10 runners on the basepaths.  Paine was 3-for-5 with a home run and one RBI.  Spencer was 3-for-4 with a walk and one RBI.  McAuliffe went deep twice and was 2-for-3 with four RBIs.

Brackman dropped to 7-2 on the season.  Wooster's Wyatt Linde picked up the win in relief of starter Andrew Hill.

In game two, Denison had their opportunities to force a split.  Leading 5-3 in the bottom of the sixth, Wooster knocked DU starter Will McManaman out of the game with a leadoff double.  Mikey Rivera entered and walked DanGail to put runners on first and second.  A sacrifice bunt by Tyler Chumita put two runners in scoring position.  Wooster pinch hitter Aaron Spidell lifted a sacrifice fly to right field, scoring Gbur.  Brian Stausbaugh drew a five-pitch walk and Jake Stuursma followed with a two-run double to right to give Wooster a 6-5 lead.

In the eighth, Anthony Ruggieri drew a leadoff walk but was caught stealing with one out in the inning.  In the ninth, Ty Robinson led off with a base hit to right.  Will Krushena flew out to centerfield and Robinson appeared to tag up and reach second base safely.  After an appeal by Wooster, it was ruled that Robinson had left first base early, resulting in a double play. Scot reliever Evan Faxon struck out McAuliffe to end the game.

McManaman pitched 5.0 innings, allowing nine hits and four earned runs.  Rivera was charged with the loss. He pitched the final three innings, allowing two hits, two walks, two earned runs while striking out three.  Faxon got the win for Wooster to improve to 4-1.

Vince Walker was 2-for-3 with one RBI and two runs scored.  Robinson, Krushena, Max Lahn and McAuliffe also had two-hit games for DU.

Garrett Crum led Wooster, going 3-for-4 with one RBI and a run scored.

Denison drops to 29-5 and 11-3 in the NCAC while Wooster improves to 21-8 and 11-1 in conference play.

The Big Red returns to action on Sunday when they host Baldwin Wallace at 3 p.m. at Big Red Field.
