Baseball snaps streak

<rleton extended its win streak to six games with a 6-1 triumph in the opener of Wednesday’s doubleheader versus Gustavus. Erik Fabry’s ’12 three-run double highlighted the offensive effort, while Aaron Troyansky ’10 twirled six scoreless frames for the win. The string of victories finally came to a halt with a 6-0 setback in game two.

The six-game win streak was the Knights’ longest since a six-gamer in April 1994. At 12-14 (4-4 MIAC), Carleton has posted its highest win total since prevailing a dozen times in 1997.

The Gusties got on the board with an unearned tally in the top of the first, but Carleton answered back in the bottom of the frame. A throwing error permitted the first runner to come home, and Alex Wirta’s ’12 two-out single plated the other run.
The following inning, Fabry crushed his two-out double to the left-centerfield wall, extending the Carleton advantage to 5-1.

The Knights threatened but came up empty in the third and fourth stanzas but notched their final run on Russ Fujisawa’s ’10 two-out double in the fifth.

Troyansky matched his season high with 6.0 innings on the hill. He kept the Gustie hitters off-balance throughout his outing despite working only one clean frame. His biggest jam came in the seventh, but he worked out of a bases-loaded situation by inducing a game-ending groundout from Gustavus’ number three hitter Mike Deslauriers.

Game two was controlled by Gustie pitcher Andrew Woitas, who tossed 6.0 innings of one-hit ball with two walks and four strikeouts. Wirta’s double down the left-field line was Carleton’s lone safety in the contest.

The Knights hit the road for Saturday’s double-dip at Saint John’s University.
