Baseball Blanked by Gardner-Webb

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. – Coming off a tough travel turnaround following its Metrodome Tournament (Minn.), the Harvard baseball team dropped a 9-0 decision at Gardner-Webb on Monday afternoon.

Marcus Way provided the lone hit for Harvard (3-4), which is back in action tomorrow at Winthrop. Gardner-Webb improves to 6-9 on the season.

Aaron Miller drove in six runs including a sixth-inning grand slam to break open what was a 4-0 game. He was 2-for-5 on the afternoon to lead the Bulldogs’ 13-hit attack.

Andrew Ferreira didn’t get out of the second inning as four walk hurt the freshman with G-W scoring three runs on just two hits during his time on the bump. Classmate Matt Doyle surrendered five more runs in 3.2 innings although he showed some flashes with three strikeouts. Will Keuper and Anthony Nutter threw scoreless innings of relief while Evan Morris allowed one run on one hit with a strikeout in his inning of work.
