Wesley Baseball's defense sets NCAA record

Wesley's defense set an NCAA Division III record with 7 double plays despite losing 5-4 to Mary Washington (Md.) in 10 innings Friday afternoon.

The Wolverines turned a 6-3 double play in the 2nd inning, 4-6-3 in the 3rd, 6-4-3 in the 4th, another 4-6-3 in the 6th, a 2-5 strikeout/throw out twin killing in the 7th, and two more 6-3's in the 8th and 9th inning.

Unfortunately for Wesley, they could not get the out they needed with 2-on and 2-out in the 10th inning when Mary Washington scored the winning run on an error by the shortstop.

The 7 double plays sets the Division III record, and ties the NCAA All-Division record.
