VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- #4 seed Virginia Wesleyan University beat #5 Ferrum College 2-0 in the first game of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference Baseball Tournament opening series this afternoon at Kenneth R. Perry Field.

Virginia Wesleyan (20-15)
Ferrum (22-17)

It was a classic pitcher's dual between Virginia Wesleyan's Andrew Lowe and Ferrum's Drew Calohan. Lowe threw a complete game shutout, scattering six hits and a walk over nine innings, while striking out seven Ferrum batters.

Calohan absorbed the loss after throwing a four-hitter with a pair of earned runs and five walks over eight innings, and striking out four Marlin batters. Neither Lowe nor Calohan surrendered an extra base hit all afternoon.

Virginia Wesleyan: Lowe (W, 5-3) 9 inn, 6 hits, 1 BB, 7 K
Ferrum: Tim Ortega 2-4; Calohan (L, 7-4) 8 inn, 4 hits. 2 ER, 5 BB, 4 K

"We didn't execute offensively early in the game and both pitchers settled in and dominated on the mound. We are still alive and have a chance to move on tomorrow!" --Head Coach Ryan Brittle

The best-2-of-3 series resumes Saturday at noon, with an if-necessary game scheduled for 30 minutes after the conclusion if Ferrum wins the noon game.
