Baseball Team Extends Winning Streak Over Wabash to a Full Decade and 16 Games
April 23, 2008
April 23, 2008, Greencastle, Ind. - DePauw University's baseball team, ranked #23 in the nation, launched "four home runs on the way to 11-3 and 6-2 victories over the Little Giants" of Wabash College last night in Crawfordsville. With the triumphs, the Tigers have prevailed in 16 straight games over their rivals to the north. In fact, the last time DePauw lost to Wabash was April 27, 1999, when Matt Walker -- then a DePauw senior, now the Tiger coach -- suffered the loss as a pitcher.
"DePauw leadoff hitter Justin Weiner hit the first of the four home runs just to the right of 365-foot sign in center field to give the Tigers a 1-0 lead at the start of game one," notes the Paper of Montgomery County. "The Little Giants were outhit 13-4 in the game ... Wabash fell behind 4-0 in the first inning of game two. The Tigers added two more runs in the third to move in front 6-0 before the Little Giants answered with two in the fifth."
