CHESTERTOWN, Md. – Washington College senior pitcher Logan Dubbé (Glenelg, Md./Glenelg) totaled a career-best 11 strikeouts in eight innings against visiting Rochester, but it was not enough as the Yellowjackets scored once in the top of the seventh inning and tacked on three more in the top of the ninth to go on to a 4-0 win over the Shoremen in a non-conference baseball game on Sunday afternoon at Athey Baseball Park.

How It Happened
- In the bottom of the fourth inning, Joe Otto led off the inning with a double down the left field line and moved to third on a one out single through the left side by Charlie Meder to put runners at the corners. Rochester pitcher David Strandberg was able to get out of the inning as he got Aaron Barclay to hit the ball to second base to start an inning ending 4-6-3 ground ball double play.
- The Yellowjackets would not get their first hit until the top of the sixth when Owen Gabbey singled to left field to lead off the frame.  Gabbey would get to third, but did not score.
- Rochester would take advantage of a Washington error to score the game's first run.  With one out Jack Herman reached on a throwing error and would score from first base when the next hitter, Grant Kilmer doubled to the gap in right-center to give the Yellowjackets a 1-0 lead.    
- The Shoremen had runners on second base and third base with two out in the last of the eighth with Wes Robertson at the plate.  Rochester relief pitcher Jack Donlon got Robertson to fly out to Will Conroy in right-center to end the threat.
- The Yellowjackets broke the game open with three runs in the top of the ninth.  With two outs, Aidan Finch hit a pinch-hit three-run double down the left field line to score David Rieth, Kyle Trombley and Will Conroy to give the guests a 4-0 lead.
