WEBSTER GROVES, Mo. -- Starter Zach Schneider allowed his first run of the season but won his third game in as many starts as the #6 ranked Webster University baseball team completed a series sweep with a 4-1 win at MacMurray College (IL), on Sunday. With the victory, the Gorloks have won six straight.
Schneider, a SLIAC Player of the Week, went seven and 1/3 innings, allowing eight hits and a walk, one run, and striking out eight. Jason Gray pitched the final inning and two-thirds, picking up his first save of the season.
Webster took a 1-0 lead in the first when Taylor Stoulp singled, stole second, and scored on a Jeff Kammer single. The Highlanders tied it up in the bottom half after Schneider gave up a walk and a single, and a two-out single to score what would be MacMurray's lone run.
In the Webster fourth, Stoulp reached on an error, took second on a passed ball and scored on a Joe Winckel single, making it 2-1 Gorloks. In the seventh, Winckel singled, Brett Buchanan walked with no one out.
After Jarrod Turner pinch ran for Winckel, he and Buchanan pulled a double steal. Kevin Kojs scored Turner on a sac fly for a 3-1 lead.
