Madonna Grad Ties Career Marks at Washington & Jefferson

Updated: Sunday, April 6 2014, 12:04 AM EDT

WASHINGTON, Pa. -- Washington & Jefferson College senior RHP Eddie Nogay (Madonna High School) tied school records for career victories (26) and shutouts (6) after twirling a three-hit shutout in the Presidents' 5-0 win over Thiel Saturday in the first game of a PAC baseball doubleheader at Ross Memorial Park. In game two, Brian O'Neill and Kyle McLain combined on a five-hit shutout for a 3-0 W&J victory.


Nogay, who improved to 26-2 for his career (4-1 in 2014) and was an All-American last year, is second among active NCAA Division III pitchers with the 26 wins on the mound.  He tied Sam Mann '07 for both school records.


The Tomcats (6-14, 0-9) were limited to three hits and two walks by Nogay.  W&J (13-8, 8-1) scored after just two batters as Derek McIlvane drew a lead-off walk and DJ Michalski followed with a double to left field.


Nick Vento, who tripled during the second inning, blasted a one-out, opposite-field home run in the fourth, the first of his collegiate career. McIlvane and Michalski added RBI singles later in the inning for a 4-0 lead.  Nick Gatins singled in pinch runner Cory Bauer for the final run in the sixth.


Michalski had two singles and a double to lead the Presidents' lineup, while Staniscia and Vento both recorded two hits.


O'Neill (2-2) held the Tomcats to five hits (four singles) in six innings (5 K) before being lifted in the seventh for McLain, who started at shortstop.  McLain retired all three batters he faced, two by strikeouts, to set the W&J single-season record with his seventh save.  Jim Pasquine held the previous mark of six from the 2008 season.


McLain scored the Presidents' first run in the second when he led off with a double and scored three batters later when Tyler Schultz reached on an error.  W&J's second and third runs came in the fourth with two outs.  Anthony Paladino singled home Kyle Smith with the first run of the inning and Vento scored on a wild pitch.


Matt Elko took the loss for Thiel despite only allowing four hits and striking out four.


The Presidents, who have swept their last three PAC twinbills, and the Tomcats close the season series tomorrow in Greenville at 1:00 pm.
