WEST LAWN — With two wins on Sunday, the Misericordia baseball team won its fourth consecutive Freedom Conference championship.

The Cougars had to defeat Manhattanville twice on Sunday to complete the feat, and did, winning the first game 4-3 in 13 innings followed by a 10-6 win in the second game.

Misericordia now advances to the Division III Mid-Atlantic Regional May 14-18 at PNC Field in Moosic.

In the opener, the Cougars plated the game-winning run on a squeeze bunt from Mike Comerford scoring Nick Hair in the top of the 13th.

Kyle Lindsay and Max German accounted for most of the Misericordia offense with three hits each, while Max German and Comerford both drove in two runs.

Ryan Dorosh (10-0) tied the school record for wins in a season, while Shane McGraw picked up his first career save.

In the nightcap, Misericordia didn’t need any dramatics as it scored three runs in the bottom of the fourth to break a 5-5 tie then tacked on two more in the bottom of the fifth to secure the conference title. Hair (2 for 4) and Kyle Lindsay each had run-scoring singles for the Cougars in the fourth, while Jeremy DeCotis (2 for 3, 3 RBI) plated two with a base hit in the fifth. Comerford hit a three-run homer in the top of the first.

Brett Davis picked up the win throwing four shutout innings in relief.
