SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - When all else fails, turning to your pitching staff can bail you out. Especially when that staff sports a combined 0.97 ERA.
That's exactly what Shepherd College baseball coach Wayne Riser did Sunday in a 9-5 win over Oswego (N.Y.) State University.
The victory extends the Rams' season-opening win streak to six, the fastest start in school history. It was also significant in Riser's eyes, because the Rams outdueled the No. 20-ranked team in Division III in its season opener.
"The pitching's doing the job," said Riser. "We're making the other team come out and beat us. We're not giving anything away. I'm ecstatic with what we've accomplished so far through six games. Today, I'm the most happy undefeated guy in the country."
