Updated: Saturday, March 8 2014, 12:15 AM EST

WASHINGTON, Pa. – The West Liberty University baseball team received two more dominating mound performances in sweeping a Mountain East Conference doubleheader from West Virginia Wesleyan by scores of 3-2 and 5-0 Friday afternoon at Consol Energy Park.

 Mark Smyth and Dylan Grosul were the mound stars for Coach Eric Burkle’s MEC-leading Hilltoppers (8-1, 6-0) who stretched their winning streak to 8 games while remaining unbeaten in conference play.

 In the opener, Smyth hurled 6.2 strong innings and West Liberty came from behind with a pair of 2-out RBI singles in the top of the seventh to get him the win.

 Anthony Pierro beat out an infield single to score Tim Hughes from third with the tying run. Pierro moved to second on an infield error and came around with what proved to be the winning run when Mike Johnson ripped a single to right.

 Smyth struck out 6 and didn’t walk a batter in earning the win. Greg Stagani came on in the seventh for the save. Jordan Meyer had a double and a single for WLU while Johnson also posted a multi-hit game.


 Grosul dominated the Bobcats (0-2, 0-2) in the second game, holding Wesleyan to just three singles while picking up a pair of strikeouts and not giving up a walk in a complete-game shutout. Tim Mirandy and Wes Howell each had a pair of singles for the Hilltoppers. Meyer and Jon-Michael Brunner collected a hit and an RBI while D.J. Busby stroked out a triple.
