CMS Completes Series Sweep of Southwestern with Dominant 19-5 Win

GEORGETOWN, Texas - Dillon Martin drove in four runs and Kieran Sidebotham drove in three as the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps baseball team kept its offense clicking on all cylinders with a 19-5 win over Southwestern (Texas) on Saturday.

With the win, CMS moves to 7-0 on the year and 4-0 in the series with Southwestern, scoring 61 runs in the four contest, including 10 or more in all four. Southwestern, which came into the weekend with matching 3-0 records with the Stags, falls to 3-4 with the loss. 

Andrew Mazzone added a solo home run and two RBI, completing a weekend in which he batted 10-for-16 with four homers and 12 RBI, including a two-homer, seven-RBI game in the third game of the series in Saturday's doubleheader.

CMS scored in each of the first five innings, including plating four runs in the first to take control early, as Bryce Didrickson had a sac fly, Sidebotham followed with an RBI single and Martin had a two-run triple.

Southwestern got two of the runs back in the bottom of the first, but the Stags came back with three runs in the second on a Mazzone solo homer and a Sidebotham two-run single. CMS got four in the fourth on RBI singles from Rider Gordon, Tyler Shaw and Mazzone, and then broke it open with six in the fifth, with Martin and Gordon starting it with RBI singles and then Joey Wilson, Didrickson and Seluga recording bases-loaded walks. 

Wilson capped off the scoring in the seventh with a solo home run to make the final score 19-5. 

Jackson Hisey started and went four innings to get the win in the seven-inning game, allowing just three hits and one earned run. Andrew Blackett struck out two in an inning of relief, and Pieter van Wingerden closed out with two strikeouts in the seventh. 

Shaw was 2-for-5, and Adam Dapkiewicz was 2-for-3 with a sac fly for CMS, as everyone in the starting lineup had a hit except Didrickson, who was 0-for-0 with four walks and a sac fly, tallying two runs and two RBI. 

CMS will be back in action this weekend when it opens SCIAC play with a three-game series with Pomona-Pitzer, playing a single game at Pomona-Pitzer on Friday and then hosting a doubleheader at Azusa Pacific on Saturday at 11 a.m.
