NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. (Titan Athletics)- The Westminster College baseball team competed against Grove City College at home on Tuesday, finishing up a suspended game, followed by a doubleheader. The Titans picked up a victory in game one, bouncing the Wolverines, 13-11 in 14 innings.  Despite their exciting extra inning victory, the Titans dropped their second, and third games of the day by scores of 4-0, and 10-0.
 
The first game of the day picked up in the top of the 12th inning. In the top of the 14th inning, the Titans broke through when freshman Logan Fordyce (Cuyahoga Falls, OH / Cuyahoga Falls) gave Westminster the lead with an RBI-single (the first RBI of his career) to right field, scoring classmate Seth Schrader (Fredonia, NY / Fredonia), putting the Titans on top, 12-11. The Titans would notch one more run, courtesy of an RBI-single by senior Hunter Alexander (Beaver Falls, PA / Blackhawk), going into the bottom of the 14th inning with a 13-11 lead.  Those runs proved to be all the Titans needed, as freshman Matt Costello (New Castle, PA / Union Area) worked his way out of jam to seal the victory for the Titans. Costello won the first collegiate game of his career after going 6.1 innings, giving up two runs on three hits. He struck out three and walked the same.
