Hens split with Tribe: Delaware got a big effort from a trio of pitchers and catcher Nick Tierno knocked in two runs as the Blue Hens defeated host William & Mary 4-2 Saturday afternoon to salvage a split in a Colonial Athletic Association doubleheader.

The Hens (26-18, 5-10 CAA), who suffered a 7-4 setback in Saturday’s opener, earned the much-needed win and stayed alive in the race for one of six spots in the CAA Tournament in late May.

Right-hander Nick Spadafino (Dover) delivered another outstanding effort on the mound in just his second career start and got solid relief support from Colman Vila and Burk FitzPatrick to key the Blue Hen victory.

After beginning his career with 35 straight relief appearances, Spadafino got his first career start on April 20 against Wilmington and fired a two-hit shutout in a 7-0 victory.

Spadafino didn’t get the win, but he went five solid innings and left with the score tied at 1-1. He scattered eight hits and allowed just one run before giving way to Vila (2-1), who allowed just one unearned run in 3.1 innings.

Diaz Nardo (Cape Henlopen) had a run-scoring double to give the Hens a 4-3 advantage in the top of the eighth inning in the opener. But William & Mary scored four runs in the eighth to take the lead and control.

Norfolk sweeps Hornets: Norfolk State pitchers Matt Outman and Jonathan Mauricio pitched matching seven-inning shutouts Saturday to lead the Spartans to a 10-0, 12-0 sweep of Delaware State in a matchup of the MEAC Northern Division’s top two teams.

In game one, Outman (7-2) pitched a five-hit shutout with six strikeouts. The game was stopped after seven innings due to the 10-run rule.

Mauricio (5-2) followed with a four-hit shutout in the seven-inning nightcap, matching his career high with nine strikeouts.
