(Gettysburg, Pa.) - The Dickinson College baseball team swept the two-game series with Gettysburg, posting a 5-1 win on the road on Thursday afternoon.
First-year pitcher Harley Moore (Deltaville, Va./Middlesex) had a no-hitter going through five and two-thirds innings before catcher Cam MacDonald singled down the right field line. Moore went the distance for a 105-pitch complete game effort. He scattered four hits on the day, recording eight strikeouts.
Sophomore Joe Tursi (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) led-off the third inning with a single and later scored off the bat of senior Jordan Kaufman (Somerset, Pa./Somerset Area). Ben Sciambi (Port Monmouth, N.J./Ridge) earned an RBI, scoring Steven Haynes (Mt. Kisco, N.Y./Mt. Kisco) with a sacrifice fly.
Tursi doubled with two outs in the fourth and stretched the Devil lead to 3-0, coming in on an RBI single from Andrew Sterling (Houston, Texas/Episcopal). Tursi proved to be the trigger man in the seventh as well. He singled to start the inning and came around on a triple from Sterling.
Sterling came across on a wild pitch to put the Devils in front, 5-0, heading into the bottom of the seventh.
The Bullets got one back, capitalizing on a pair of Dickinson errors and a sacrifice fly for the final of 5-1.
Tursi went 4-for-4 on the afternoon, scoring three runs. Sterling finished 3-for-4 with two RBIs and a runs scored. They combined for seven of the Devils' nine hits in the game. Garrett Horan (Providence, R.I./Moses Brown) and Sciambi added hits as well.
