The Terriers are now 7-24 on the season and 3-13 in the NCAC East, while the Yeomen improve to 13-20, 4-8.

In Game 1, the Yeomen struck for seven runs in the second inning to take a 7-0 lead.

Hiram got a run back in the bottom of the frame, when freshman Kyle Watson (Warren/Howland) scored on a wild pitch.

The Yeomen tacked on single runs in the fifth, sixth and seventh innnings, while the Terriers got a RBI single from senior Ron DeAmicis (Austintown/Fitch) and scored another on a fielding mishap from Oberlin in the sixth.

Watson paced the Terrier offense, going 2-for-3 in the game.

Senior Nate Weiss (Warren, Mich./University Liggett) struck out three batters in five innings of work and drops to 2-5 on the season.

In the second game, Oberlin scored in the top of the first to take a 1-0 lead, before Hiram countered with a run in the bottom of the frame on a RBI single from Watson.

From there, the Yeomen would score nine unanswered runs and cruise to the 10-1 win.

Senior Pat Rhodes (Girard) gave up two runs in five innings of relief.

Junior Trevor Foster (Warren/Champion) went 2-for-2 to lead Hiram at the plate.

The Terriers will return to action on Saturday, when they hit the road to take on Mount Union in a single nine inning game that is set to begin at 1 p.m.
