Roundup: Hens earn win over Monmouth in baseball; Hornets fall twice

Delaware right-hander Kyle Hinton retired the first 18 Monmouth batters he faced in Saturday afternoon’s 2-1 Blue Hen baseball victory at Bob Hannah Stadium.

Heading into the seventh inning with the perfect game intact and nursing a 1-0 lead, Hinton allowed a leadoff single to Monmouth’s Kyle Norman. After a strikeout, the Hawks would eventually load the bases with one-out chasing the Delaware righty. Senior Colman Vila allowed a bases-loaded walk to tie the game, but eventually got the next two batters to pop-up and groundout.

In the bottom of the seventh, Kevin Mohollen drew a one-out walk and advanced to third base on a stolen base and a throwing error. Second baseman Erik Bowren drove in Mohollen one pitch later on a single to left.

Vila returned for the eighth inning, where he struck out the side. In the top of the ninth, Monmouth was able to place runners on the corners with one-out, prompting another pitching change for the Hens. Righty James Meeker entered and promptly coaxed a comebacker, keeping the tying run at third base, before the righty struck out Matt Graber to seal the win.
