Presidents Win World Series Opener
The heart of the lineup delivered for the Presidents as W&J topped Concordia-Chicago, 4-2, in the opening round of the Division III College World Series Friday. Nick Gatins had three hits and drove in a pair of runs in the third as the Presidents took the lead for good. Nick Vento's sac fly tied the game before Gatins doubled to the left-center gap, putting W&J up 3-1. Two innings later, Mark Merlino singled to center to score Derek Helbing to help Bryce Schnatterly to his 9th win of the year. The junior right hander allowed two runs on six hits over seven innings. Helbing pitched the ninth to pick up his 6th save of the year. Vento had two hits, including a triple in the seventh, his 251st career hit, tying the school's all-time record.

In the winners' bracket Saturday afternoon, the #5 Presidents face #8 Roanoke. The Maroons upset the #1 seed, Oswego State, 9-8. Our coverage is set to start at 2:05 pm. We'll have every W&J game in the eight-team, double-elimination National Championship Tournament on WJPA-AM (1450) and online.

Bucs Fall To Mets

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Neil Walker homered twice in his return to his hometown, Jacob deGrom gave New York's bullpen a needed rest and the Mets beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 8-1 on Friday night. Walker, who grew up in Pittsburgh and played seven seasons for the Pirates before being traded to New York in December 2015, finished 3 for 5 with four RBIs. He hit a two-run shot off Chad Kuhl (1-5) in the third and added a solo blast to right-center in the fifth. DeGrom (4-1) became the first Mets starter to get an out in the eighth inning since last June, pitching 8 1/3 innings and giving up a run with 10 strikeouts and one walk. DeGrom also had two of New York's 12 hits.

Kunitz Leads Penguins Back To Stanley Cup Final
PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Penguins are heading back to the Stanley Cup Final. Chris Kunitz beat Craig Anderson 5:09 into the second overtime to give the defending champions a 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final Thursday night. Kunitz scored twice, his first two of the playoffs. Justin Schultz added the other in his return from an upper-body injury, and Matt Murray stopped 28 shots on his 23rd birthday. The Penguins are trying to become the first team since the Detroit Red Wings in 1998 to win back-to-back titles. They will host Western Conference champion Nashville in Game 1 on Monday night. Mark Stone and Ryan Dzingel scored for Ottawa. The Senators rallied twice to tie it. Craig Anderson made 39 saves, but couldn't get a handle on Kunitz's shot from just outside the left circle. The Senators are 0-6 in Game 7s in franchise history.
